Kevin Phase has limited the role of Iron Man in the upcoming MCU series, Mrs. Marvel
In the new series from Marvel Studios Mrs. Marvel, Kamala Khan (Iman Velani) has been portrayed as a huge fan of the Avengers – especially Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). Naturally, any fan of the world’s most powerful heroes, especially Thanos (Josh Brolin) will have nothing but love for the late Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in the next world and will respect him in any way.
Actress Iman Velani has revealed that in real life she is a huge fan of Iron Man. So much so, that he wanted more references to the fallen Avengers Mrs. Marvel However, Kevin Fez, president of Marvel Studios, asked the creative team to tone the references:
“I’m a huge, huge Iron Man fan. I know Orange is more Captain Marvel, but I was asking too much for more Iron Man references there. For example, ‘I think he needs an Iron Man action figure, more Iron Man.’ There was a point where we got too much Iron Man, that was Kevin’s note!
There is no disrespect to Iron Man, but in the end, Mrs. Marvel sets Captain Marvel above any other Avengers in the lineup. It is understandable why Kevin Phase would like to tone any Iron Man reference. After all, the character’s death has had a significant impact on the ongoing MCU, and some would agree that many references to him would be distracted from the newly established new character and story.
