Marvel Producer Weighs In On Potential Movie/TV Crossover


At this stage in the game, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bona fide juggernaut across both film and television, encompassing all kinds of costumed heroes from the Krysten Ritter-fronted Jessica Jones to the boisterous ensemble glimpsed across the Avengers films.

But will the studio ever consider staging a crossover event that would bring the likes of Charlie Cox’s Man Without Fear onto the big screen?


That’s a topic Marvel Producer Nate Moore addressed in an interview with /Film, revealing that “it’s possible” on paper, though the varying timelines of film and television shows makes such a crossover more difficult to bring to life.  A feature film is typically limited to a two-and-a-half hour running time, for instance, while the episodic nature of TV series allows for more thorough character building.

I think it’s possible for sure. It’s interesting that the TV timeline and the film timeline moves so differently because they tell stories so quickly because they have 10 to 22 episodes. So sometimes it’s just hard for those things to line up perfectly. But we love that idea of ultimately, say a Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Punisher, Agents of SHIELD, maybe there’s a way to get ‘em back in there as long as it makes sense for our storytelling and doesn’t prohibit them from telling a story.

We say ‘oh, this happened to Daredevil somewhere in the future’ and they go ‘Well, that’s not what the TV show wants us to do.’ We don’t want that to start to feel like there’s friction so we haven’t figured out how to do it but we’d love to do it.

Looking further down the Marvel slate, Hell’s Kitchen beckons ahead of the premiere of Daredevil season 2 on March 18, while Joe and Anthony Russo will be tearing Earth’s Mightiest Heroes apart when Captain America Civil War roars to life on May 6.
