The MCU should probably drop its ‘Rick and Morty’ obsession in the wake of Justin Roiland’s charges

Maybe it's time to drop the obsession with the animated series.

Kevin Feige must be a fan of cult favorite animated series Rick and Morty, based on the recruitment of several notable alumni to have been drafted in to work on a multitude of Marvel Cinematic Universe projects across Phase Four and beyond.

Michael Waldron created, served as the lead writer, and executive produced Loki, before moving onto Sam Raimi’s blockbuster sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, while he’s landed his biggest MCU gig yet by being tasked to crack the script for Avengers: Secret Wars.

Elsewhere, Jessica Gao may have pissed off the trolls to no end, but She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes by critics, even if it does rank as the lowest-rated project of the entire Marvel Studios era when it comes to its audience score on the aggregation site.

Jeff Loveness was the most recent Rick and Morty recruit, having penned the screenplay for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which evidently left Feige impressed enough to hand him the reins for The Kang Dynasty, so the boss has clearly got huge faith in the show’s alumni to bring their talents to the MCU.

However, fans have voiced their displeasure at the volume of Rick and Morty crossovers with the MCU in the past, and the recent allegations leveled at creator Justin Roiland stand every chance of sounding the death-knell for the series altogether. Marvel doesn’t really deal in negative publicity or overriding backlash, so perhaps Feige should hold back recruiting any more candidates from the tarnished episodic adventure for the time being, if not for the foreseeable future.
