There’s been a lot of talk about the way VFX artists are treated by Marvel Studios. Given they are one of the biggest players in the market, there’s going to be tension as with any other service-based industry. It’s definitely been quite a few reports from artists that highlighted the crunch and many challenges that come with the work on these Disney+ and movies.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was one of the many targeted due to its inclusion of not one but many fully CGI characters like Hulk, She-Hulk, Abomination, and who knows who else might show up. During this year’s Summer TCA panel, Tatiana Maslany, Kat Coiro, and everyone attending the panel voiced their support for the VFX industry, as well as for them being able to unionize.
It’s great to see them speak out on the matter, and as more reports from many perspectives start to surface, it does paint a very curious picture. There’s a lot we don’t know behind the scenes and we’ll have to see if there will come an official statement from Disney or Marvel Studios.
No matter where one stands on the issues, it doesn’t mean we should downplay the work that is being done on the Disney+ show which has improved tremendously since the first entry. So, it’s going to be exciting to see how the show comes together once it premieres in just a few weeks.
