‘She/Hulk’ Director Discusses the MCU Film that Inspired Her the Most
An MCU project that is among the most unique, She/Hulk director Anu Valia discusses the MCU film that inspired her the most.
It may just be five episodes in, but there is little denying that the MCU’s most recent Disney+ series may be their most entertaining.
A series that approaches the art of self-aware comedy in a way that the Marvel Cinematic Universe had never attempted due to its strict and regimented connection to continuity, the change in focus has been a perfect fit for the story of Jennifer Walters.
Tatiana Maslany has taken over the screen just about every episode and continued to establish to viewers why she is set to be a mainstay in the MCU for years and years to come.
But it is more than just her, as the entire creative team has done their part to craft a brilliant story that is flooding with tremendous characters.
In a recent interview, the architect of the brilliant episode five, She/Hulk director Anu Vaila discussed the MCU film that inspired her most.
As reported by The Direct, Vaila stated, “And its funny because, as a fan, you also… You wanna do service to the fans, but you also want to create something new and not come from a place of fear… Just from a place of the story… In a truthful and funny way.”
She continued, “I feel like I was really… the comedic tone, balancing that and the emotional crux of the show, Jessica and Kat laid such a groundwork that I just build off of that. But I know personally, I was looking, I feel everybody feels this way, I was looking to what Taika Waititi did with Thor[: Ragnarok].”
Vaila concluded, “Like, he balanced that so well. I think that was maybe, out of the Marvel films, that was like the most forefront of my mind… Even the technical thing of like improvising with a CGI character, that type of stuff. So personally, that movie was on my mind a lot.”
