Marvel fans have long wondered if the studio’s TV shows and the Marvel Cinematic Universe will eventually crossover.
Speaking with i09, Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, says that a crossover could happen “at some point,” but it’s not really a confirmation of if they ever would. Feige was asked if a character who appeared in one of Marvel’s TV shows meant that the character couldn’t appear in a movie.
“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.”
The TV shows, like Daredevil, Luke Cage, and the upcoming ABC series, Inhumans, may exist in the same universe as The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but there has never been an outright crossover. The closest we’ve ever gotten is Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the series isn’t a crossover, per se, but it does have the closest ties to the MCU because the characters are all S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and that aspect has always played a big role in the films.
It’s possible to see a continued overlap or Easter eggs being sprinkled here and there, but a bigger crossover implies that characters from the separate properties will appear across both the TV shows and the movies. While Kevin Feige is open to the idea now, it might still be a long ways away before we actually see it happen.
