Speaking to The Wrap, Ali made the case for Scott Lang’s podcast interviews to be done. Not only that, but she shared that she’s just as “desperate to succeed” as fans are desperate to hear:
“Why shouldn’t the MCU expand into podcasting? Like the fictional podcast? I mean, Paul Rudd, what’s up? Let’s do it. I’ll write it, just sit in a booth. It will be a good time. I would love to hear it. […] For me, podcasts are my relaxation space. As if I was obsessed with podcasts. So yeah, I can see Kamala just sitting around listening to it all the time. I would love to do that.”
As Ali implies, it is a bit obvious for the House of Ideas to bring this idea to life. If Rudd is down, then why not? But also, Scott Lang has another movie coming out soon. Imagine the synergy Marvel could create by bridging the gap between “Ms. Marvel” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” with this podcast. They might even take it a step further by linking the interview to previously established viral marketing like “WHIH Newsfront with Christine Everhart” featuring Leslie Bibb reprising her role from the films “Iron Man” or “The Daily Bugle” with JK Simmons as J Jonas Jameson.
It wouldn’t be new territory for Marvel either, either, as the company’s comedy arm has been into scripted podcasts since 2018. They largely focused on Wolverine in one way or another with “Wolverine: The Long Night” starring Richard Armitage and the “Wastelanders” series, but they recently changed things up with “Squirrel Girl: The Unbeatable Radio Show,” which features the adorable Doreen Green hosting her own call-in show on the radio station. college radio station.
