She-Hulk is well and truly a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and we couldn't be more thrilled.
While Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) seems otherworldly, turns out that the show's taken inspiration from real life.
In fact, during episode three the social media reaction to She-Hulk on screen seems to have been inspired by real trolls.
One eagle-eyed fan account noticed some pretty big similarities between the misogynistic social media comments on the show and the reaction to Marvel announcing the show back in 2019.
The user took to Twitter to note: "It seems like Marvel took some inspiration. In 2019 when Marvel announced She-Hulk the comments were spammed with outraged men.
"Even some of the exact words shown in the video. 'So we have a metoo movement now and all the male heroes are gone?'"
That last, horrendously misogynistic comment was written in a clip during the show but if it sounds familiar it's because, during Marvel's 2019 announcement of the series, someone commented: "So we have a (metoo) movement and now all the male hero's are gone? Somehow I think marvel just made a wrong turn."

Yep, someone legitimately said that, and to make things worse it got 322 likes because apparently, some people feel threatened by a small peppering of female superheroes in the cannon full of male ones.
That's not the only similar comment as another in the show read: "Why everything gotta be female now???", while the real life similar comment read: "Why everything gotta be about women ? Who tf cares about women's rights? HULK DOESN'T NEED TO HE A GIRL."
'He a girl' might be the most hilarious typo we've ever read and we'd like to ask that user to calm tf down because She-Hulk clearly isn't Hulk, she's better.
While another added: "Do they realize females have always been a part of marvel whether it was in the comics or on screen."
A third added: "Clearly they don’t be paying attention to anything in the world of comic books… Female superheroes are a thing, have been for a very long time, and is not gonna change anytime soon. Male superheroes, female superheroes, this world is big enough for both… Jesus."
And we couldn't have said it better ourselves.
