"She-Hulk" is a fun and refreshing installment of Disney+ programming, with endless cameos from the MCU that have people talking. Head writer Jessica Gao explained the nuances of getting approvals for MCU cameos and which characters were completely off the table to use.
"There were a lot of characters that we wanted to use that we couldn't," Gao revealed. “Either there was a rights issue with the character or there [were] already other plans in the MCU for them. [It was] the same with pulling characters from the MCU."
The reasoning varied depending on the ask; as Gao put it, "Sometimes it's a rights issue, like all the characters involved with 'Spider-Man.'” Well, there goes any hope of getting a Green Goblin cameo on "She-Hulk,” as he'd be the perfect villain for a longer trial.
