‘She/Hulk’ Episode 5 REVIEW
The latest episode of Marvel’s newest series presented yet another brilliant installment of a series that has some of the most colorful characters the MCU has ever seen; this is our She/Hulk episode 5 review.
It feels like, with every passing week, we find more and more reasons to fall in love with what Marvel is setting out to accomplish with their newest MCU Disney+ series.
She/Hulk is proving to be one of the most entertaining projects that Marvel has ever created, crafting vibrant characters that add breath to a series centered around the more comedic aspects of the MCU.
Since its first installment, Tatiana Maslany has proven to be the perfect choice for the character, and every single week provides more and more opportunities for fans to endear themselves to a character so charming.
It isn’t just the brilliance of Maslany, and the great character that Jennifer Walters has proven to be- which should ensure she is a mainstay in the Marvel universe for the foreseeable future- but it is how this show has built a Marvel Universe that feels completely fresh from what Phase Four has given us.
Director Kat Coiro and writer Jessica Gao may be the best duo Marvel has employed for a Disney+ series, as they have excelled with a task that may be as difficult as any.
These two aren’t just creating a Marvel series centered around the introduction of one character, they are actively commenting on the world of the MCU with a self-aware comedy that must walk the tightrope of continuity and decades’ worth of films and series to present to fans.
Of any Marvel project that we’ve gotten in Phase Four, She/Hulk feels the most alive; with every week bringing characters and plot points that are brilliant commentaries on our world, and the Marvel universe.
She/Hulk episode 5 may well be the best entry thus far, but the trajectory of the entire series shows that the best is likely yet to come.
