She-Hulk's Head Writer Wanted Kevin Feige To Cameo In The Finale

"She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" has concluded its 1st season, and what a conclusion it was. The legal comedy superhero Disney+ series follows the life of Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany), a lawyer who becomes a Hulk following an accident where her blood gets mixed with that of her cousin, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). Now known as She-Hulk by the public, Walters takes on legal cases representing other superheroes while dealing with her own messy social life. Despite annoying online trolls and some mixed responses to certain elements of the series, namely its visual effects (via Den of Geek), "She-Hulk" has managed to be generally enjoyed by most, sporting a hearty 87% Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes. With its refreshing take on the Marvel formula, great performances, and witty satirical comedy, "She-Hulk" offers a bit more bite than we normally see from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

And that bite became bigger with the show's mind-blowing finale. The 9th episode of the show sees Jen storm into the Marvel Studios to confront the writers and K.E.V.I.N., an artificial intelligence robot that has been making all the creative decisions for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The robot in question is an homage to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who has been the primary producer of every MCU production from the beginning. As witty as the joke is, the team originally hoped to punch it up even more by having Feige himself voice the A.I., although one key ingredient was missing that prevented this from happening. 

Feige refused to voice K.E.V.I.N.

In a Murphy's Multiverse interview, Jessica Gao, the creator of "She-Hulk," talked of how the team working on the series tried to get Kevin Feige to voice the A.I. robot K.E.V.I.N. in the season finale, but Feige turned down the offer. "We campaigned very hard for Kevin to do the voice and he refused," Gao said. The crew would even find themselves arguing with Feige over the decision to have K.E.V.I.N. wear the producer's signature baseball cap. 

"Yes, we did get in a fight over the hat because in the script it says that She-Hulk enters the inner sanctum," Gao continued. "The pre-vis team had already started mocking up all types of versions of Kevin. They all had a little black baseball cap ... Real Kevin says, 'You can't have the hat ... It doesn't make any sense for a machine to wear this baseball hat.' I was like, 'Kevin, this is the problem you have with all of this?'" As fun as the "She-Hulk" finale is, Feige refusing to be a part of the meta-commentary on the criticisms of the MCU arguably robs the moment of its full comedic potential. 

While we know Jen will eventually crossover with other characters in the MCU, it is unknown if the show will return for a 2nd season. However, Gao has expressed interest to return and use ideas she wasn't able to for the first (via Collider)
