Avengers: Endgame Features The MCU’s First TV To Movie Crossover


It’s no secret that Marvel’s TV universe and the MCU have forever operated on two different tracks.

Aside from one or two shoutouts now and again, the likes of Daredevil and Jessica Jones have existed under the looming shadow of Marvel’s cinematic juggernauts without so much as a fleeting cameo. That all changed this week though with the global release of Avengers: Endgame, which finally acknowledged Marvel’s TV universe and, more specifically, the now-canceled Agent Carter series.

This brief moment of fan service can be construed as a minor plot spoiler, so we’ve included it after the jump in case you’re wanting to avoid every little detail relating to Endgame. And frankly, we don’t blame you; this is the final act of a 22-picture saga, and one that shouldn’t be ruined or spoiled in any way so close to release. Earth’s Mightiest Heroes said it best: “don’t spoil the Endgame.”

With that disclaimer out of the way, we can now confirm that Avengers: Endgame features a brief cameo from Edwin Jarvis, the personal assistant of Howard Stark who would later serve as the inspiration for Tony’s A.I. system. It’s a special little moment tucked away in the Endgame time travel sequence, and yes, Jarvis was once again played by James D’Arcy, who brought the character to life in Agent Carter before it was sadly taken off air.

That means Jarvis is the first Marvel character to make the jump from television to film, whereas the likes of Phil Coulson, Nick Fury, Peggy Carter, Howard Stark and Lady Sif have all transitioned from big screen to small over the past number of years. So in that respect, Avengers: Endgame made history. And things are just getting started.
