SHE-HULK Writer Jessica Gao Reveals That Kevin Feige Contributed A Lot Of Ideas To The Show (Exclusive)

Kevin Feige remains the best of the best, and when we caught up with She-Hulk head writer Jessica Gao to talk about the series, she revealed that Feige made several contributions to the screenplays.

Interviews Opinion

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is one of the very best in the business, and as we've heard time and time again, he is also one of the most accessible and collaborative studio heads in all of Hollywood, helping his talented umbrella of filmmakers in any way he can. 

While speaking with She-Hulk: Attorney at Law head writer Jessica Gao last week, she affirmed everything we've always heard about Feige and also revealed the surprising amount of input he had on her screenplays, even contributing jokes about his own Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Noting that Feige does seem to enjoy hiring former Rick and Morty writers, having also enlisted Michael Waldron (LokiDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) and Jeff Loveness (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania) - "I feel like, you know what, it just kept working for them, so they were like, why stop the strategy?" - Gao went on to gush about the President of Marvel Studios.

"I really love Kevin, working with him has been probably one of the greatest joys of my professional life, because he, I mean, I hate to add to the mounds of compliments he's constantly getting but reluctantly, I have to confirm it is true. He is brilliant. He truly is the creative genius that everybody says he is. He is, I think the best creative producer working in Hollywood today, and he's also just like a nice dude. who's very easy to talk to."

While that's no surprise and something we've heard from nearly everyone that's crossed paths with Feige over his career, she continues by revealing that Feige was a heavy contributor to the She-Hulk writers' room. She tells us that he gave her so many brilliant ideas and jokes that actually ultimately made it onto screen. 

Part of the reason I respect him so much is he lets me be incredibly mean to him and he lets me bully him constantly, and I don't think any other president of a studio would ever let me do that, but he also just comes up with like brilliant ideas. There were so many elements in the show that were his pitches, and he's truly egoless because there have been times where he'll pitch a really good idea, and I'll be like, “That's great!,” and I'll use it. I'll put it in a script, and then weeks later, he'll read the script, and he'll have forgotten that it was his idea, and he'll say, “Oh, that was really smart. That was great.,” and I'd be like, “No, that was your idea, dummy.” Like, how did you forget this brilliant idea that saved the script."
