Get ready for the new daily show

Finally, a connection between two Marvel TV shows is confirmed…

One of the biggest issues we have with the MCU is that, despite Marvel’s declaration of ‘it’s all connected’, it’s, well, not.

We know Agents of SHIELD’s Agent Coulson came from the movies but outside of the odd wink and nod, there’s pretty much no connection. Same with the Netflix shows; surely they should have the same boots on the ground as Tom Holland’s Spider-man.

Lord only knows what the deal will be with the upcoming New Warriors and Cloak and Dagger.

However, within these different shows, it seems that the upcoming Runaways will exist within the same reality as the Netflix shows.

It seems that Jeph Loeb, the man behind the Netflix shows, has confirmed that the two DO co-exist:


However, this doesn’t mean we’ll see the Defenders meeting up with the children whose parents are international villains.

It’s not likely that Hulu will have Matt Murdock in The Runaways, which seems to be a problem with all the Marvel properties being so finely spread – it’s this reason that we’ll never see Spider-man meeting Kingpin and it’s unlikely we’ll ever see Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage teaming up with Iron Man and the Avengers against Thanos in Infinity War.

For now, despite this connection, we’ll have to do what we always do… pretend it’s all connected and regret the fact that, despite existing in this world, these characters will never meet.


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….
