She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’s writing staff consisted primarily of women, and chief writer Jessica Gao believes that having women in the room was a significant asset to the program.
“We simply mined each other’s lives,” Gao said in an interview with Lifehacker Australia. “We all had these experiences, everyone had a different perspective and point of view,” Gao said. “We all had these experiences.” She-Hulk explores many challenges that modern women face, including a comic perspective on the dangers of online dating when green and gigantic. This is just one of the many themes that are addressed in the show.
Gao believes that the female writers’ viewpoints were especially important in this regard because the show focuses on Jennifer Walters both as a successful female lawyer and as a woman who becomes famous very suddenly. She stated that “a lot of the time it was just a lot of discussions about what it’s like to be a woman and what it would be like to be a woman who is a superhero and in the public eye.” “A lot of the time it was just a lot of discussions about what it’s like to be a woman and what it would be like to be a woman who “As the program progressed, you began to notice a lot of parallels and a lot of themes emerging, and those were the things that we injected into the show.”
She-Hulk vs. Sexism
The television show She-Hulk has already been subjected to what is known as a “review bombing” attack, in which trolls have given the show around one thousand one-star ratings on IMDb before the release of the first episode. Similar campaigns have been waged against other female-led Marvel movies and series, such Captain Marvel in 2018 and Ms. Marvel earlier in 2022, in an effort to make it appear as though fans are less excited about these projects before they have even been viewed by anyone. She-Hulk will be the third live-action Marvel Disney+ project to have a female lead writer, following in the footsteps of Jac Schaeffer (WandaVision) and Bisha K. Ali. Gao will take on the role of showrunner for the series (Ms. Marvel). Schaeffer is also going to be the showrunner for the WandaVision spinoff Agatha: Coven of Chaos. A. C. Bradley is serving as the head writer for both of the upcoming seasons of the animated series What If…?, which is produced outside of live action.

In a press conference held prior to the premiere of the first episode, star Tatiana Maslany discussed the anticipated criticism. She stated that the She-Hulk team was fully aware that the program would elicit sexist reactions, and that they prepared for this outcome. She remarked, “I think people, you know, can have a real visceral response to like a woman superhero,” and she also mentioned that they had already seen that occurring online. “I think people can have a genuine visceral response to like a woman superhero,” she continued. She also expressed the hope that people’s preconceptions and viewpoints would be altered if they saw the show. She remarked, “There is so much stuff going on that challenges people.” “There are so many other things going on.” “I can’t wait for other people to have a look at that.”
