It seems like Marvel TV and Marvel Studios are the “will they, won’t they” couple of our geeky film lives. Given that the Marvel Television universe first branched off of 2012’s Avengers, it was initially expected that at some point down the line, some of our favorite TV heroes would bleed onto the big screen. However, while the TV shows have often bent over backwards to connect themselves to the movies, you don’t see the same courtesy being extended to the TV universe in the films themselves. Add into that the divide between Marvel Studios and Marvel Entertainment some time ago, and it seems like we may never get the ultimate crossover we were all hoping for.
But the folks over at Marvel Studios aren’t stupid. The reason why there’s always a story about this ever few months or so is because they’ve made sure not to cut off the possibility. After all, down the line, it may very well be in their best interests to have a superhero team-up that makes Avengers: Infinity War look like small time stuff. Sadly, it doesn’t sound like that day is coming any time soon.
Speaking with Allociné, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said the following when asked about a potential crossover.
“Maybe someday. No plans right now. Maybe someday, but we have a lot of characters in the MCU, and one of the things that is so special about those characters on the Netflix shows is their dynamic together. They are all combining to become The Defenders later this year and are doing their own thing.”
Yeah, Marvel and Netflix are certainly doing their own thing, but we’d be lying if we said we still didn’t want to see Daredevil break some bones alongside Captain America. Again, it’s always possible that in another 10 years or so that that will be the case, but for now, we should just accept our measly 4-man team-up on TV in The Defenders, and our lowly 156-man team-up in Avengers: Infinity War.
