Among all the news right now about the rift between the MCU’s movie and TV devisions (here), it may be an idea to look back at comments made by the president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige.
Feige explained why shows like Agents of SHIELD and Daredevil (and the rest of the Netflix shows) will likely not become part of the cinematic continuity.
“It’s about finding the right way to do that,” Feige said.
“And the honest answer is, movies are developed so far in advance that a lot of those things [Inhumans, Hydra monsters, etc.] weren’t done when we started to film [Captain America: Civil War].”
“Or, if we were to do something in a film that absolutely handcuffs what the team can do in season 2 of whatever show, they don’t want to be handcuffed. They shouldn’t be handcuffed. It’s just finding the right time and right place to do it.”
Reading between the lines, we get the feeling that he’s saying it’s pretty much a no go. That the logistics may be nearly impossible to line up – basically, don’t be expecting it any time soon.
Though he absolutely would love to see it: “I love seeing as many heroes as possible interacting and surprising fans with their presence but, like Spider-Man, Ant-Man and Black Panther in this movie, like Falcon inAnt-Man, it just has to be absolutely blended with the story at hand, and not just, ‘Hey who is that who just drove past?’ That would be easy. We could do that in post—but that, I think, does a disservice to the characters.”
We reckon if there’s one company that could put their heads together and make this happen it’s Marvel. And we’re really starting to understand why DC have very separate universes on TV and cinema…
