Kevin Feige has been anything but tight-lipped in regards to the company’s plans. Just days after possibly revealing a key identity in the cinematic universe, The President of Marvel Studios stated that the Marvel cinematic and television products will collide at some point.
In an interview with i09, Feige spoke about the possibility of the of the two crossing over.
“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.”
Currently, there has been little to no interaction between the products, aside from the vague mention of the Big Green Guy or the Guy with the Hammer on the TV shows. The movies have given no attention to the existence of occurrences that take place in shows like Daredevil, as they seem to appear on a much small scale, despite both affecting New York.
Even the television show that was a direct spinoff – or at least result of – the Avengers movie, Agents of Shield, has its own narratives that don’t entirely rely on events of the movies and vise versa.
Our first exposure to small appearance will likely be during Avengers: Infinity War, and will probably be limited to The Defenders in New York for a scene or two.
But given the ridiculous amount of movies and shows that Marvel has planned, even so, to organize them into phases, it only makes sense that they will cross over at some point. Otherwise, they will either get stale or run through all of the big ideas presented in the comics and will have to make up their own.
