The writer of Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney Plus series, She-Hulk, has compared Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to the Coronavirus pandemic.
She-Hulk’s writer, Dana Schwartz, may have come under a bit of criticism this week for a tweet she posted recently.
The tweet has since been deleted, but ComicBookMovie.com managed to get it written down before it was deleted.
In this tweet she compared The Rise of Skywalker to Coronavirus, which isn’t the best comparison to make at this point in time.
Here’s what she wrote in her tweet:
COVID-19 is going to be like Rise of Skywalker. It’s a nightmare. It’s going to be a struggle. But then we’re going to get to come out the other side and pretend it never happened
She-Hulk’s writer says Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is like Coronavirus
As I mentioned before, it was probably not the best comparison to make.
The fact that Schwartz has since deleted the tweet means that she realised her mistake.
I get what she was trying to say, yet given the world’s current situation, it came of as a little bit insensitive towards the people who have died and have been affected and infected by the virus, and the people who worked on The Rise of Skywalker.
What do you make of this news?
Do you think Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was in any way like the Coronavirus?
