Several pieces of media tied to the She-Hulk show have decided to call out men for being incels.
I pretty much loathe the Marvel Cinematic Universe, all things considered. To me, this juggernaut franchise that dominates the big and small screen monthly is a sea of mediocrity. It’s a universe where fan service reigns supreme, and important stuff like script quality, a plot that makes sense and general likability get swept under the carpet. Alas, despite my personal eye roll perspective of the MCU, it has undeniably cemented itself as one of the most prominent pop culture mainstays of recent years – and as a pop culture writer, I keep a watchful eye on what’s occurring – dabbling where I see fit. I enjoyed Black Widow, I loved Black Panther, I cherished WandaVision. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was next on my hit list – thanks to its casting of Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk, one of the finest actresses working today in my opinion. First episode? Pretty good. The IMDb ratings? A horror show that has She-Hulk exposing the biggest problem for Marvel: Misogyny.
Before She-Hulk had even dropped its first episode, which came out yesterday (Thursday 18th August), the show found itself with over 100 one star reviews on IMDb from users. How they managed to watch an entire season of a TV show to rate it one star before Disney+ even released it is beyond me, but clearly since this demographic of white males that are over 30 know it all and are always right, we must take their word as gospel. Or bow to their every will!
