Kevin Feige Says Never Say Never About MCU TV/Movie Crossover
Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones – together, they form the four pillars of Marvel’s small-screen universe, but those hoping that The Defenders (and Frank Castle!) may one day cross over into the Marvel Cinematic Universe needn’t get their hopes up.
At least, that’s according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who once again addressed the possibility of a crossover while promoting the imminent launch of Infinity War. And so, when Screen Rant asked Feige straight-up about a potential movie cameo appearance for any of those four street-level heroes, the Marvel boss responded as so:
I don’t know. It really remains to be seen. So much of what they’re doing has been set. We’ve already shot Avengers 4. So much of what we’re doing is set, but I just, I never say never, but I’m not sure when that would be.
It’s by no means the first time that Kevin Feige has touched base on a possible movie/TV crossover, nor is it likely to be the last, but with so many characters already lining the roster of Avengers: Infinity War – for the record, Benedict Cumberbatch estimates that there are around 35 big-name heroes in total – adding the likes of Daredevil et. al would surely oversaturate a film that is already being championed as the biggest Marvel movie in the history of Marvel movies.
And that’s not a phrase to be taken lightly, given this is the same studio that has produced such mind-numbing hits as The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War.
For Matt Murdock and Co., meanwhile, it’s business as usual, what with new installments of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones all in active development – the latter recently landed a third season at Netflix. So perhaps it’s for the best that both franchises continue to operate on two different tracks?
