In an interview with Collider, showrunner Jessica Gao spoke about how she was surprised by the near-constant level of work on every frame of footage. She said: “There is nothing that can prepare you for working with Marvel Studios, so every new element is amazing. One of the most amazing things is how much time it takes for each second. Even before the premiere, I was still working. on the show. For me, this is probably the most amazing thing. They’re really going to keep working on things and keep tweaking things until the very end.”
In short, according to Gao, Marvel’s art process is thorough – potentially overly thorough, but thorough nonetheless. It’s a lot of work to ensure intentionality. That said, have you ever read a comment and immediately understood what the social discourse™ will be like around it? A friendly reminder to all our readers around the world: it is possible that the project will be carefully designed and not satisfy the feelings of all equally. There are easier, more direct ways to say the same thing, but hey, it’s done.
What’s best about this quote is that in the context of the entire interview, it’s clear that Gao is not only a Marvel fan, but also a She-Hulk fan. They couldn’t have found a better person to spend those long hours creating a product that would best showcase who Jennifer Walters could really be if given the chance to prove herself.
