In the past, it’s been rumoured that Kevin Feige isn’t a huge fan of Disney’s insistence on the Marvel Cinematic Universe stretching to the small screen. Whether or not that’s true is unclear, but we’ve yet to see too many characters from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show up in a Marvel movie, and fans are still desperate for news on Daredevil‘s big screen debut (Captain America: Civil War is looking unlikely, so now everyone’s fingers are crossed for The Defenders to show up in Avengers: Infinity War).
Regardless, in a recent Q&A session to promote the DVD and Blu-ray release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Feige explained that he does hope for more crossovers between their movie and TV projects in future:
“I think that’s inevitable at some point as we’re plotting the movies going forward and they’re doing the shows.”
Emphasizing the fact that scheduling is a big problem for making this a reality, the Marvel Studios President went on to explain in great depth why exactly we haven’t seen more connectivity up until this point:
“It’s easier for them. They’re more nimble and faster and produce things quicker than we do, which is one of the main reasons you see the repercussions of Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron in the show,” Feige said. “Going forward and certainly as they begin to do more shows and cast them with such great actors as they have — particularly Daredevil — that that may occur. A lot of it is by the time we start doing a movie, they’d be midway through a season; by the time it comes out they’d be done with the second, starting the third season. Finding timing on that is not always easy.
One crossover a lot of people are desperate to see is between Spider-Man and Daredevil, and Feige had this to say about the possibility of a villain like The Kingpin being used in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot:
“I don’t know, probably. That would probably be the cool thing to do. That particular scenario has not come up yet.”
