She-Hulk star Tatiana Maslany and showrunner Jessica Gao touched on VFX artists being exploited on Marvel projects.
Over the past few weeks, Marvel Studios has come under fire from VFX artists for being overworked. Various artists opened up about the last-minute changes from the studio and other instances that have led to frustration, stress, and burnout. For She-Hulk, there has been criticism from some fans about the look of the CGI, which isn’t uncommon for Marvel Studios projects.
She-Hulk‘s CGI has improved in recent footage that has been released as the series gets closer to its release later this month. While promoting the upcoming series at the TCAs, She-Hulk star Tatiana Maslany has this to say about the VFX industry’s criticism while adding that she is pro-union:
“We have to be conscious of how the work conditions are not always optimal.”
She-Hulk showrunner Jessica Gao also showed her support for overworked VFX artists:
“I think everybody on this panel stands in solidarity with workers.”
Will Marvel Make Changes?
Marvel Studios just announced a slew of new projects at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks ago. With the studio producing more projects than ever before, will they keep in mind the well-being of the various VFX houses they utilize? As the issue gets more awareness, it will be interesting to see how Marvel Studios will address it.
