Tatiana Maslany sheds light on industry struggles amidst strikes and uncertain future for ‘She-Hulk

Spread MCU News

Tatiana Maslany, renowned for her role as She-Hulk, recently opened up about the emotional climate surrounding the 2022 strikes by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA). The strikes, which advocated for better rights and compensation for writers and actors, led to a standstill in production and drew criticism from industry executives, including Disney’s CEO Bob Iger. His comments, initially dismissive of the strikes as “not realistic,” sparked an uproar within the creative community.

Maslany, reflecting on the situation, described the frustration and difficulty in articulating the collective angst of her peers, particularly when such remarks come from the upper echelons of power in the entertainment industry. Maslany further delved into the nuances of an actor’s work, highlighting the often unseen labor that goes into self-taped auditions. Actors invest considerable effort in these auditions, learning lines and filming multiple takes, all without compensation or even the courtesy of feedback. Echoing sentiments expressed by Olivia Colman, Maslany underscored the lack of respect inherent in this process. This insight into the actor’s craft provides a stark contrast to the glamorous facade typically associated with Hollywood and emphasizes the personal and professional investments actors make, often without any guarantee of return.

The future of the Disney+ series “She-Hulk” remains uncertain, as the show has not been renewed for a second season. Despite the optimistic labeling of the last episode as a “season finale,” and a persuasive case by ComicBook.com’s Jenna Anderson for its continuation, Maslany’s comments on the financial constraints hint at a less hopeful outcome. This uncertainty resonates with the showrunner Jessica Gao’s analogy comparing the creation and release of a series to childbirth, capturing the exhaustive yet rewarding nature of the process. Gao’s words vividly convey the immediate post-launch period, a time of recovery and reflection for creators before considering the prospect of renewal, mirroring the real-life concerns of postpartum parents adjusting to their new reality.
