The upcoming Marvel series She-Hulk: Attorney At Law looks like it will have a number of appearances/cameos from various characters across the Marvel Universe. We have the return of Abomination (Played by: Tim Roth), we have the return of Daredevil (Played by: Charlie Cox) and possibly even an appearance from Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones.
Well it turns out that the series would have had some even bigger appearances, at least according to one of the writers.
Head writer Jessica Gao recently revealed in an interview that they originally wanted to include characters from the Spider-Man Universe as well, but that they couldn’t due to SONY’s stranglehold over the Spider-Man movie rights.
“There were a lot of characters from the comics that we wanted a lot of the comics for characters for fun situations where we could bring in like a character and think of like funny reasons why they would be in legal trouble,. But there were a lot of characters that were from the comics that we couldn’t use either because of a rights issue, or there were a few times where it was because of Marvel, all they would say is that they had other plans. And that’s all they would tell us.“
“And then, we tried very, very hard to poke, and prod, and get a little bit more information. Of course, they wouldn’t tell us. But I will say, the one MCU character that really bummed out a lot of the writers in our room that we couldn’t use was Spider-Man and anyone involved around, like in the Spider-Man universe. Because we had so many Spider-Man fans in the room.“
It is a shame that we won’t get to see Spider-Man or any of the other characters from the recent Tom Holland trilogy. SONY’s continued push to make their own Spider-Verse prevents such things from happening.
