She-Hulk: Attorney at Law proved to be surprisingly divisive among fans of the MCU, but Charlie Cox's return as Daredevil in "Ribbit and Rip It" received widespread praise.
Further establishing the actor's place as the Man Without Fear in this shared world, it was an action-packed effort which laid the groundwork for Daredevil: Born Again. As for who wrote the episode, that would be Futurama, Robot Chicken, and Marvel Comics scribe Cody Ziglar.
The WGA has been on strike since May and over 160,000 actors who are members of SAG-AFTRA joined them yesterday evening. Hollywood has come to a standstill and Disney CEO Bob Iger came under fire yesterday for saying he finds the entire situation "disturbing."
One of the WGA's demands has been for studios to reevaluate how writers are paid in the streaming era. In 2021, the average television writer in Hollywood made upwards of $10,000 in residuals for an episode of network primetime TV.
In comparison, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law's Ziglar has earned a paltry $396 for his work on the Marvel Studios series.
The strike makes a whole lot more sense now, eh?
It's a shocking development and one which makes Iger's comments even more troubling, particularly when he's thought to be making upwards of $50 million per year. Now, Hollywood is likely to be at a standstill for the next several months.
Check out Ziglar's comments in full below.
