Kevin Feige says Marvel movie & TV worlds will crossover "at some point"

05.06.2017

Marvel has spent the better part of the last decade dominating the movie world, and has also been making great headway in the TV business along the way. As of now both worlds have remained mostly separate, with characters like Daredevil and Jessica Jones keeping far away from Iron Man and Captain America. However, given the scope of the comic book landscape, Marvel head Kevin Feige has said that the crossing over of these two realms is virtually inevitable.

While taking with io9, Feige was asked if being featured in one medium means that a character can’t be featured in the other, answering that as time goes on a crossover is bound to happen:

Not necessarily. The future’s a long time. So, the truth is, I don’t really know, but there are a lot of TV shows being made, and hopefully we’ll continue to make a lot of movies. At some point, there’s going to be a crossover. Crossover, repetition, or something.

Marvel currently has a bunch of new shows coming down the pipe, like CLOAK AND DAGGER, NEW WARRIORS and INHUMANS this fall, while their slate of Netflix shows continue to break records. The idea of characters merging between movies and TV is not unheard of in the Marvelverse, with Clark Gregg’s Phil Coulson getting his own show after "dying" in THE AVENGERS, a show that has had a few appearances from Samuel L. Jackson ‘s Nick Fury.

Of course Feige is speaking less in terms of current, concrete plans and more with a blatant acceptance that as these movies and TV shows evolve the characters are bound to meet with one another. Not to say Daredevil will get his own movie with Thor, but maybe one will stop by to say hello to the other, and the two will maybe punch a few folks.

I think the inevitability of such a crossover is becoming more and more feasible, and could be a great marketing move. Earlier Marvel movies focused on straight-up solo tales, but now it seems one character can’t have their own movie without sharing the screen with another big hero (e.g. SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING, THOR: RAGNAROK), which often results in bigger box office numbers and grander stories. True, there are a lot of factors to think about, but never say never, as I'm currently hoping to see Doctor Strange and Iron Fist have a meditation battle.

The next big superhero mash-up, AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, arrives May 4, 2018.

How about they get the TV shows recognising each other first! How Shield or Hydra didn't show up to prevent/capitalise on the live brawl at the end of Luke Cage, I'll never know.

At one point - maybe Tony Stark will meet Matt Murdock at Starbucks or something and that's it.

I

I'll believe it when I see it; although out of all of the characters to make a crossover from the Netflix series to the films, I would love to see Daredevil, Punisher, and Kingpin appear in some future Spider Man sequels.

Hate to say it, but finally feeling some fatigue, particularly toward the shows which have been steadily dropping in quality. Still holding hope for a proper movie version of Ghost Rider though. AOS is simply not doing the character justice

The more they try to connect all these properties together, the more holes appear in the universe if you really start thinking about it. And so far these properties are only connected by a one-way street. The shows reference the films, but the films don't acknowledge anything from the shows. Doesn't really bother me, they all sort of work on their own to varying degrees. Feige and Marvel are known for keeping their options open. The tv characters crossing over with the films is a possibility

THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN !

Because the 'two bosses' of Marvel(s) (MCU and, let's say MTVU) are worst enemies !
MCU is Feige's baby, while MTVU is still the 'property' of (the man responsible for many people not wanting to work with Marvel anymore, and one of Trump's best friend) Ike Perlmutter !

From what has been announced in the past, crossovers could happen with the ABC and other shows. But supposedly NOT with Netflix shows due to contract stipulations.

What I want to know is if the people who make Marvel movies even watch Agents of SHIELD or Daredevil. If they do then there's no problem because then they will, at the very least, litter subtle references to the TV shows in the movies. If not, well, then it will take longer for events on the TV shows to make an impact on the big screen. Let's say that Season 5 of Agents of SHIELD is the last season. (So far, Inhumans looks God awful. The showrunner on Inhumans is the same person who did

(So far, Inhumans looks God awful. The showrunner on Inhumans is the same person who did Iron Fist. The fact that a second season of Iron Fist hasn't been announced yet speaks volumes.) Maybe Jed Whedon will get involved in movies. He could do a movie version of Ghost Rider with Robbie Reyes and/or a remake of Blade set in the MCU. The people behind Agents of SHIELD deserve their own feature(s).

Would love to see the Agents of SHIELD make the jump to the big screen. Or Spider-Man passing by Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Matt Murdock (Danny Rand I don't think would mess with Parker) even Doreen Green.

This needs to happen

Some lesser characters maybe could be excused for not showing up in the MCU, i.e. Cloak and Dagger, Claire aka Night Nurse and so on.

Daredevil is a staple in Marvel cannon. To have access to him, make an incredible show with him and not give him a chance to meet up with Spidey? Inexcusable.

I would love to see some crossover between the two forms of media; however, I think all we'll get is Rosario Dawson making a cameo in some future MCU movie.

Who knows though, maybe we'll get to see Downey Jr and/or Evans. appear in next (final) season's final episode of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D, and have that show come full circle. I would love to see Clark Gregg in Infinity War, even as a cameo.

Also, not just Samuel Jackson, but Jamie Alexander appeared in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Also, you may want to edit your article in the last paragraph, by including the year of release: "The next big superhero mash-up, AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR arrives May 4."
