Despite what a lot of people think, not every idea that gets pitched for a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie or TV show gets accepted. Yes, people like Taiki Waititi and James Gunn get plenty of freedom, but there are some well-known stories of pushback on various films like Thor: The Dark World, The Incredible Hulk, and more. Now, we can add Ms. Marvel to that list.
According to head writer Bisha K. Ali, the team wanted to do something unique for Ms. Marvel in terms of how Kamala’s love of the Avengers would be further tied to the movie Endgame via live-streams of the epic battle of that movie. There was only one problem–Kevin Feige said “no”:
“At one point, like early days before we kind of expanded the creative team out, I was like, ‘Kevin, what if there was like, drones and a live stream of the battle of Endgame?” And he like, ‘Bisha, no,'” the writer said in a recent interview. “I’m like, there wasn’t one Twitch streamer around for the final battle of Endgame? Are we kidding? I think I lost my mind at that point, trying to solve this riddle. So it was really a big iterative journey. And it was something that kind of changed and moved all the way through. And I think it must have been a Sana [Amanat] pitch by the end. Or it might even — I actually have no idea where that idea came from. But when we kind of integrated it into the script, I think it was perfect. It was characterful.”
If you think about it, that makes sense due to timing and other factors. Instead, it’s revealed in the show that Ant-Man went onto a podcast to give some battle details for the people at large to know. And guess what? Bisha K. Ali wants to make that podcast in full now. We’ll have to see how Kevin responds to that request…
