The Battle of Earth was almost live-streamed in the MCU, however, the idea was shot down. This idea was explored in the context of the new Disney+ show, Ms. Marvel. It follows the adventures of Kamala, a misfit, who is an avid superhero fan. Her life changes when she gets fascinating powers and abilities. Recently, Marvel executive producer, Bisha K. Ali gave an interview to The Wrap. There, she talked about her plan as to how Kamala was aware of the events of Avengers: Endgame‘s final battle of earth. The plan was quite interesting but was shot down by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

Bisha K. Ali told The Wrap that she pitched the aforementioned idea, but it was quickly rejected. She said: “At one point, like early days before we kind of expanded the creative team out, I was like, ‘Kevin, what if there was like, drones and a live stream of the battle of ‘Endgame?” And he was like, ‘Bisha, no.’ I’m like, there wasn’t one Twitch streamer around for the final battle of ‘Endgame?’ Are we kidding? I think I lost my mind at that point, try to solve this riddle.”
“…So it was really a big iterative journey. And it was something that kind of changed and moved all the way through. And I think it must have been a Sana [Amanat, co-creator of the ‘Ms. Marvel’ [comics] pitch by the end. Or it might even — I actually have no idea where that idea came from. But when we kind of integrated it into the script, I think it was perfect. It was characterful.”
Seems like, solving this problem was hard for the team, Ali went on to say: “I’m gonna be honest, I never take credit where it’s not due, that wasn’t my idea. That was something that we went through a million rounds of this, of like, how does [Kamala] know about things? Is it because everyone’s posting things on social media?”
Nevertheless, the idea of live streaming the epic battle across the MCU sounds fascinating.
