‘She/ Hulk’ is Getting Review Bombed
It has become one of the worst practices in modern entertainment media, and it is taking place alongside the arrival of the MCU’s next hero, as She/ Hulk: Attorney at Law is already getting review bombed amidst its debut on Disney+.
The long-awaited premiere of Jennifer Walters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has finally taken place, with the character getting her very own Disney+ series that is set to explore the character balancing her life as a lawyer, and her life as a budding superhero.
Its first episode was tremendous and provided something that the MCU has not had in its over a decade of existence; with its emphasis on comedy, and easy accesability due to its 30-minute runtime, the show feels much lighter than previous MCU entries.
Our initial thoughts were that the series does live up to its Marvel billing, and despite it being only one episode in, it does very much feel like a very welcomed change of pace for the MCU as a whole and a character that brings a fresh new perspective to a universe that has suffered from a bit of staleness.
It seems, however, that despite the widespread critical acclaim for the project, it is on the receiving end of one of the worst practices in the entertainment industry today, as She/ Hulk is already getting reviews bombed from very small sections of the community.
Review bombing is the practice of one small section of people giving the show one-star ratings, leading to an overwhelming disfiguring statistical analysis, and a distortion of the actual mean rating from those who have reviewed the project.
As ComicBook.com has reported, however, this is a practice that was occurring before the series was even released, with one specific group targeting the project before it could even be screened for the public.
The same report stated that, “According to IMDb’s metrics, adult males are overwhelmingly the ones rating She-Hulk on the low end- with males over 30 being the most critical group of all,” with the massive amounts of one-star reviews leading to the conclusion that this is a calculated review bombing tactic
