MCU’s She-Hulk Actress Talks MCU Fans’ “Tough Love”
In a recently published interview with Phase Zero, Jameela Jamil shared her thoughts on loyal MCU fans. The actress was quick to joke about her experience at San Diego Comic-Con, saying she thought Marvel fans were “gonna boo.”
The Direct shares a full transcript of its response, which you can read below:
“Oh, that’s amazing. It goes straight to your bones. I thought they were gonna boo me, which I was very ready for, that’s why I dressed like an asshole, you know what I mean? Like, I have an alligator crawling all over me, I’m just plain evil. But they didn’t. They were so kind and loving. And that’s what Marvel fans are.
Even before the MCUs She-Hulk officially premiered, the series had already received backlash from Marvel fans. Fans have been flocking to the internet, commenting on the poor visual effects quality of the series’ early teasers. This forced the studio to rework the show and release better looking VFX. And recently, Jamil has also received cold remarks from fans about his red wigs.

“I think they sometimes get a bad rap online because they’re very passionate and they have a lot of opinions. But if they weren’t so passionate, if they didn’t have all these opinions, Marvel wouldn’t “Maybe wouldn’t have evolved into what it is now without the fans. So we have to thank them. Even though they sometimes give us the tough love, normally they’re right.
There is a hint of truth in Jamil’s words, as fans can make and break the projects any studio will release. End of Game wouldn’t be such a hit without Marvel fans.
