Marvel just released the trailer for its new “She-Hulk” series and some fans are not impressed, especially when it comes to the quality of the computer-generated imagery (CGI). Overall, the trailer got mixed reviews.

“They need to delay the show a bit…her cgi is shrek 1 graphics,” one person wrote. 

“Looking forward to this. CGI looks a little weird but whatever I get it. As long as it’s fun I’ll suspend my disbelief,” someone else said. 

“I do hope they improve the CGI before the show comes out, other than that it looks pretty good,” another commenter agreed.

The Disney+ series has high expectations after the massive success of other similar projects such as “WandaVision,” “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and “Loki.” According to PopSugar, “She-Hulk: Attorney At Law” will explore the titular character’s origin story, which is teased a bit in the new trailer. 

Tatiana Maslany stars in the series as Jennifer Walters, a lawyer who craves a normal life but is instead saddled with Bruce Banner’s Hulk powers. This forces her to become the town’s newest superhero even though she doesn’t want to be.

The series “follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk,” the official description reads. The trailer shows She-Hulk trying to be a normal person at work and in her dating life but also coming to terms with the other side of her. 

The series will have nine episodes and stars Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/the Abomination, and Benedict Wong as Wong. Other members of the cast include Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass, and Renée Elise Goldsberry.

Movie critic Paul Tassi shared in an article for Forbes how it would not have been possible to put prosthetics on Maslany, as the character has to physically transform into a seven-foot-tall green bodybuilder. 

Still, both Tassi and many fans are saying how the CGI efforts are not great quality, and will hopefully be fixed before the premiere. Something similar happened with the “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie. In that case, fan backlash was so extreme that the studio went back and changed the entire look of the movie, especially the character’s creepy teeth. 

The show is scheduled to begin streaming exclusively on Disney+ starting August 17.
