‘She/Hulk’ Episode 4 REVIEW
Marvel’s newest series continues to take the MCU in a direction it has never gone before, tackling subjects so foreign to the world of superheroes in a way only Jennifer Walters can; this is our She/Hulk Episode 4 review.
There was a moment at the beginning of this episode that truly began to establish a theme of the Marvel Cinematic Universes’ newest project.
After an introduction that sets up the major conflict set to play out over this fourth installment, Jennifer Walters looks into the camera that does her patented fourth wall break; mentioning to fans that this would be yet another Wong-involved episode.
It solidified the reality that She/Hulk is embracing a format that is so foreign to the world of Marvel superheroes, but feels so incredibly fresh to the world that we have all been embracing for over a decade worth of projects.
This is a show that is more akin to a sitcom than to a streaming series, and it feels like its focus does lie where you would typically expect an MCU series focus to.
She/Hulk episode 4 doesn’t feel like a means to an end, there is no grander exploration into a hero that is being defined, not for who they are in the moment, but what they will mean to the universe that they inhabit.
Jennifer Walters is a breath of fresh air because she feels like such a real person in a world of superheroes; in a way that is more akin to the endearing Ms. Marvel than to a series like Loki or WandaVision.
Tatiana Maslany is, once again, a brilliant actress that is slowly finding the nuance of this character, as director Kat Coiro and writer Jessica Gao have leaned into the exploration of subjects like the incredulous world of online dating.
There will be a lot of people who are uninterested in the way that She/Hulk approaches the Marvel story, but there is also an undeniable feeling that this is a character that is so vital to adding yet another color to the lustrous landscape of the MCU.
