While Kevin Feige once stated it was “inevitable” that Marvel movies and TV shows would crossover, that comment is a rare deviation from his standard explanation, which usually sees him diplomatically point to the vastly different development schedules between the small and big screen as a big factor why Daredevil won’t ever rumble alongside the Avengers at the multiplex. Essentially, the TV shows are pretty far behind in the timeline, with even the latest “Iron Fist” referring to “the incident” from “The Avengers.” But beyond that, Kevin Feige’s movies and Jeph Loeb‘s TV shows are being made in completely different spheres; basically, don’t hold your breath for a crossover. And if you don’t believe us, listen to Falcon himself, Anthony Mackie.
“Different universes, different worlds, different companies, different designs. Kevin Feige is very specific about how he wants the Marvel Universe to be seen in the film world. It wouldn’t work. It wouldn’t work at all,” he said at Wizard World Cleveland, when asked about the two Marvel worlds colliding.
Yep, that about sums it up. Maybe we can all stop asking Kevin Feige (though, let’s be real, everyone will still be asking) but Marvel movies are operating on a whole other (and usually better) level than the shows. So, might as well stop wishing for Luke Cage and Bruce Banner to fight alongside each other at the movies. [via Flickering Myth]
