<p data-cy="Paragraph" data-experiment=" Deadpool 3 ” class=”text-neutral-grey w-full mb-4 text-body-1 font-body dark:text-neutral-white”>Thanks to a new tell-all book, it has been revealed that Marvel CEO Kevin Feige refuses to work with two specific people in the MCU.

When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a lot of situations and details are left on the cutting room floor, especially when it comes to behind-the-scenes things.

However, a new book has been released that gives fans a peek behind the curtain.  MCU: The Reign of Marvel Studios, written by entertainment journalists Joanna Robinson, Dave Gonzalez, and Gavin Edwards, tracks Marvel’s rise to global success and the people behind the movies/TV shows.

One of the biggest reveals is that Marvel CEO Kevin Feige has two people on his never work with list and those people are pretty notable within the MCU.

When recounting who Feige would never work with again, the book reads, “If the Inhumans could be rehabilitated, apparently everyone in MCU history was on Feige’s call list—except Edward Norton, the franchise’s first Bruce Banner, and Joss Whedon, whose Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. characters remained in limbo.

According to the book, Norton, who starred in The Incredible Hulk, wanted a “longer ponderous movie” as he was inspired by Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins while Marvel wanted a “shorter adventure movie.”

Feige and Norton butt heads a lot over the creative direction of the movie and, while The Incredible Hulk movie was released, Feige quickly released a statement confirming Norton wouldn’t return to the MCU.
