She-Hulk: Attorney At Law has generated quite a backlash when the show was first announced in 2019 and the series addressed these toxic and misogynistic comments through including them in the series then having Jennifer Walters dismiss the comments and focus on her case.

While the comments point out that a number of female superheroes are finally coming into the light, had it been the other way around, it wouldn't even be a big deal at all, but Marvel has handled it quite seamlessly as they even include those to the series.

On the latter part of the MCU, the women are finally stepping up into the platform as more and more female superheroes are getting into the narrative, something that Black Widow had to endure over the years on her own before having Wanda on the Avengers.

Marvel promised and continues to deliver to its own words to have representation, inclusion, and diversification on the franchise and it seems to be working well all throughout.

As for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, director Kat Coiro, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, explained the importance of the "female lens" in the creation of the series, "I will be so excited on the day when that is not a big deal."

Coiro added that women-centric shows exist and that is just the way it is, "We're not there yet, but I hope that this show is part of that movement, where it's just accepted that some shows are predominantly led by women because that's how life is."

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law releases weekly on Disney Plus.
