She-Hulk Writer Responds to Claims Disney+ Show Isn’t Comically Accurate

The nine-episode first season of She-Hulk: Lawyer came to Disney+ last fall, and it definitely defied expectations surrounding the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The half-hour legal comedy followed the unlikely superhero story of Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany), a journey filled with some bizarre and delightful moments. While the show received much praise from fans and critics alike, elements of the show – including its meta-villains – were met with backlash from trolls on social media. Dan Slott, who wrote a long series with She-Hulk in the 2000s, recently took to Twitter to respond to the latest bit of backlash, suggesting that She-Hulk: Lawyer was not accurate to the comics.

“Everyone who said the @SheHulkOfficial TV show wasn’t ‘comic accurate’… I’m the guy who has written more issues of SHE-HULK than anyone. I’ve read every single comic from everyone #SheHulk run. And I say, for the record, it’s the MOST comic-perfect show in the MCU.”

When will She-Hulk return to the MCU?

She-Hulk’s next MCU appearance has not been confirmed, not even in a second season of She-Hulk or in another project. As Maslany told ComicBook.com shortly after the show’s first season ended, the ambiguity of where her character might go next is exciting for her.

“I mean, that’s really what drew me in the first place, which was — I wasn’t expecting this,” Maslany explained in our interview. “I didn’t expect this character. I didn’t expect where she goes. I didn’t expect these little weird moments that she gets to… So for me it’s really about being surprised, you know? Because she’s so irreverent. So if I waiting or if I want a certain thing, probably the best option is to do the exact opposite.”
