The MCU is officially back with its next Disney+ entry in Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel, the second character to debut in her own Disney+ outing after Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight. While plenty of anticipation has built up over the past couple of years to see Kamala Khan in action, fans have also voiced concerns about the show’s use of CGI and special effects ahead of its debut.

Since the first trailer for Ms. Marvel debuted in March, MCU fans have been quite vocal about the drastic change to Kamala Khan’s powers, which are more cosmic than physical on the small screen. The show’s creative team has explained why this change happened in order to tie Ms. Marvel to other cosmic storylines, although this hasn’t calmed all worries about what Marvel Studios has in store.

While fans are already invested in Kamala’s story as she makes her mark within the MCU, the topic of CGI has once again taken center stage as Marvel Studios moves further along into Phase 4. This continues to be the case with Ms. Marvel specifically, as fans made their voices heard on the show’s use of CGI after the first episode debuted to the public.

Following the debut of Ms. Marvel on Disney+, critiques regarding the CGI work in the series have flooded the internet.

“The CGI powers REALLY look awful. And the origin of it is terrible. But I do dig Kamala doing theory videos and so many fan arts. They nailed her personality wise. Also who is supposed to be the ppl in the mid credits? SWORD?”

The CGI in Marvel Studios projects has been a hot topic in recent months, specifically instances like the work done in Spider-Man: No Way Home and the footage seen in the first trailer for She-Hulk. The same is true now for Ms. Marvel, with complaints ranging from semi-frustrated to borderline angry as Kamala Khan explored her powers for the first time.

These complaints come on top of some unfortunate review bombing from certain sects of fans, although there are plenty of positives coming from Ms. Marvel. Iman Vellani’s portrayal of the lead character is quickly winning fans over after the Marvel crew and cast members teased just how good she was in her first true acting appearance ever.
