Kevin Feige Had Just One Big Issue With The She-Hulk Finale

The season finale of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, which airs today, is sure to be one of the most talked-about pieces of entertainment Marvel has released since WandaVision.

The episode unexpectedly altered pace after bringing the series’ story strands to a conclusion in a massive CGI slugfest, with She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany) breaching the fourth wall and trying to figure out why all of Marvel’s movies seem to finish the same way.

Among her criticisms of the ending were nuggets of truth regarding the Marvel formula and the one to whom she expressed her concerns: K.E.V.I.N.

K.E.V.I.N. is a sentient AI in the shape of a ceiling mounted robot with a face reminiscent of a camera lens, complete with a small metal “roof” over the lights, which is designed to suggest the idea of a baseball cap.

Feige is rarely seen without a ball hat on in public, thus the comparison is spot on. And, as you can expect, Feige objects. But perhaps not in the way you might imagine.

“I wrote in the script that when she sees this big AI machine, it’s wearing a little black baseball hat, a classic Kevin Feige-style black baseball hat,” head writer Jessica Gao explained on Marvel’s official breakdown of the finale. “When the [visual development team] was showing us different possible sketches of K.E.V.I.N., they were all wearing little hats.

No matter what type of robot or machine it was, it was wearing a little black baseball hat on top. [Human] Kevin said, ‘Well, that doesn’t make a lick of sense, why would a robot wear a hat?’ I said, ‘That’s the part that doesn’t make sense to you, Kevin, that is the line of logic that you won’t cross, we have you represented as an AI brain that is controlling all of the Marvel Cinematic Universes, but the thing that you can’t get past is that it might have a hat on top of the machine?’ And he said, ‘Yeah.'”
