Are you talking about the actors suing or another creative party suing?

If your talking about TV actors suing, then Marvel can always renegotiate there contract before they decide to add a crossover plot point.

If you talking about another creative party suing then Marvel has pretty much avoided that. You can't get sued if you own the live action TV rights and the Movie rights. On top of that you to stack the deck in your favor by producing the TV series yourself and air it on your parent companies' Television station. If anyone where to sue it would be like taking cash out of one pocket and putting it in the other.

What is the most indestructable thing in the avengers? Ironman's suit, Captain America's Shield, or Thor's Hammer? The correct answer is Hulk's Pants
Loki: i have an armyTony Stark: we have a hulk!
