Kevin Feige seems open to the idea of the Marvel movies and TV shows meeting now…

May 7th, 2017 by Marc Comments

It’s no secret that, despite the ‘It’s all connected’ tagline, the MCU TV Shows and movies are very separate things.

Marvel Studios Head, Kevin Feige, has made no secret of this, saying the two will never really crossover. Now, we know there’s been some crossover – for example Nick Fury and Lady Sif appearing in Agents of SHIELD, along with Avengers Tower in Daredevil and numerous references spoken in various series, but we reckon what Fiege is talking about is major events – for example, it makes sense to us that The Defenders would help fight Thanos in Infinity War, even though we’ve been told it’ll not happen.

Now, however, with Marvel creating many nexw shows – Cloak & Dagger, New Warriors, Runaways and The Inhumans – it seems that Feige has softened a little to the idea of crossover.

“The future’s a long time,” he says of the MCU’s many arms, “So, the truth is, I don’t really know, but there are a lot of TV shows being made, and hopefully we’ll continue to make a lot of movies. At some point, there’s going to be a crossover. Crossover, repetition, or something.”


Now, we don’t know what this means exactly – it certainly seems it’s not part of the plan yet, but we know that, from a story point of view, with  spider-man and The Defenders out there every night, sooner or later they SHOULD cross paths. Same as she Thanos attacks, The Defenders SHOULD get in on the action.

So we reckon at some point in the future we’ll see crossover… after all, no other studio plans longterm like Marvel and Disney are doing right now, os it only makes sense.

Sooner than later, we say…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
