I think we can all agree that Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has featured some of the most polarizing projects in the franchise's long history. 2022 alone saw a number of divisive films and shows and one of them is She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, a series that stirred major controversy within the MCU fandom since its first episode.
A lot of factors led to the Tatiana Maslany-led series becoming poorly received by audiences but most critics seem to agree that the show is too woke and feminist, especially for a superhero project. Now, months after it concluded, Kevin Feige is addressing the backlash it generated and you'll be surprised to know that everything they did was apparently intentional.
In a recent interview with EW, the Marvel Studios boss claims that She-Hulk was always meant to stir controversy. Feige explains: "[She-Hulk has] a very different tone than many of other projects have, and that was totally intentional. I think when we are doing about eight projects a year — and again, I said this is going to shift a little bit — they all have to be different. They all have to stand apart and stand alone and be different from one another."

Despite the controversy surrounding the series, there were still fans who genuinely appreciated She-Hulk's ballsiness although it can't be denied that it's not everyone's cup of tea. Now, it remains unclear whether or not the show will actually get a second season run but I guess it's up to Marvel if they're ready to face the wrath of the show's critics anew.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is available to stream on Disney+.
