The Marvel Cinematic Universe has ebbed and flowed in many different directions this year, and none has been quite like She-Hulk: lawyer. The Disney+ exclusive series brought Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk’s (Tatiana Maslany) journey into live-action – something viewers were eager to see realized on screen given her unique tenure in Marvel Comics. In the first season, Jen changed in and out of She-Hulk form quite often, and as supervisors at the VFX agency Digital Domain revealed to ComicBook. comthose transformations were rooted in a unique visual aesthetic, which really had nothing to do with comics.
“We got a reference of ripening strawberries early on,” Digital Domain VFX Supervisor Phil Cramer told me ComicBook. com. “It was a very simple but very elegant transformation. Before, the transformations were often quite painful to the body. It seemed like bones breaking and resetting and stuff, so you normally see the characters going through some emotions. With She-Hulk, that isn’t supposed to be at all, right? It’s meant to be a beautiful event, something beautiful that happens. I think it’s a very different approach. For us, of course, we wanted to respect that, but as much detail as possible there during the transformation to She -Hulk, like little veins and goosebumps running. But everything had to be done under the eye to make sure it looks nice, and not scary or uncomfortable, or that her skin doesn’t look nice during that transformation.”
“One of my favorite transformation shots on the show is actually in the second episode, where she’s talking to her boss, after she just punched Titania in the face in court,” revealed Digital Domain Animation Supervisor Elizabeth Bernard. “She’s had quite a few glasses of whiskey at this point and he asks her to turn back into Jen so he can fire her, and she immediately falls down, because she can’t handle her booze at that point. That was so” one funny scene to work on. I loved it.”
The first season of She-Hulk: lawyer is now available to stream exclusively on Disney+. If you haven’t tried Disney+ yet and want to give it a try, you can do that here.
