Jessica Gao, the She-Hulk the editor was commended for her efforts.

I saw the first 4 episodes of #SheHulk and I’m happy to report that they are…amazing! Tatiana Maslany is GREAT as Jen Walters, but my favorite thing is how completely grounded She-Hulk is in the MCU while showing us something completely new. I can’t wait any longer! pic.twitter.com/9RRL7MIVgN

I watched the first 4 episodes of #SheHulk and it’s a great follow-up to Ms. Marvel, improving both the quality and style of the MCU on Disney+. She-Hulk is Marvel Studios’ funniest content to date and takes a refreshing take on franchise lore and formula with its meta styling. pic.twitter.com/JFhHL7aOo1

While anticipation for the show’s release has been raised on a massive scale, it remains to be seen if mainstream audiences wholeheartedly resonate with what early critics had to say.

While many were supportive of the show even before the reviews, the others who were skeptical and critical of the show have now been swayed from the other side. Some are thrilled to know that despite the countless cameos, the spotlight, at least for the first four episodes, is definitely on Jennifer Walters. Tatiana Maslany seems to be a fan favorite, as many on Twitter were happy to know that the actress is recognized and appreciated for her talent.
Here’s what fans had to say:
The premiere of She-Hulk screened 4 episodes of the series and apparently none of them contained Daredevil. Good bc my daughter deserves her time to shine.

Reviews of She Hulk are positive. Not at all surprised. You know, sometimes I really forget that Marvel movies are actually GOOD because of that echo chamber hell hole.
— Clifford Batteau (@CliffordBatteau) August 15, 2022
While most admitted the presumptuous hatred for the show was unreasonable, some stuck with their undiluted skepticism. Here’s what some people had to say:
unsurprisingly it gets positive reviews… but so do all the other mcu projects even if it’s awful so… that doesn’t mean much
— Gillian (@ahsokavaders) August 16, 2022
Early reviews for She-Hulk are apparently positive…just like they were for Loki, Moon Knight, and MoM…and everything else Disney has released over the past decade…yeah I guess I’ll hold my skepticism thank you.

Until the official release of the series, it can undoubtedly be seen that fans and the general public will be divided in their opinions, however exceptional the first reviews. Only time can tell what the consensus towards the show is.
The first episode of She-Hulk: Lawyer premieres August 18, 2022, only on Disney+.
