With the Marvel Cinematic Universe now spanning across film, network TV, and Netflix, fans have been wondering if and when characters from one platform will cross over to another. Well, in a recent interview with /Film, Marvel producer Nate Moore was asked about whether we might eventually see a crossover between the film and television sides of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Moore replied by saying:
I think it’s possible for sure. It’s interesting that the TV timeline and the film timeline moves so differently because they tell stories so quickly because they have 10 to 22 episodes. So sometimes it’s just hard for those things to line up perfectly. But we love that idea of ultimately, say a Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Punisher, Agents of SHIELD, maybe there’s a way to get ‘em back in there as long as it makes sense for our storytelling and doesn’t prohibit them from telling a story.
We say ‘oh, this happened to Daredevil somewhere in the future’ and they go ‘Well, that’s not what the TV show wants us to do.’ We don’t want that to start to feel like there’s friction so we haven’t figured out how to do it but we’d love to do it.
That seems like a fairly safe answer that doesn’t give a lot of new information, but it does tell us that Marvel still hasn’t ruled out the possibility of a crossover between film and TV at some point in the future. Still, Moore’s remarks suggest that we shouldn’t hold our breath for Coulson’s reunion with The Avengers any time soon.
And while it may be some time before we see a crossover between Marvel Studios and Marvel Television, there’s no denying that both divisions of the MCU have been dealing out fantastic content over the past few years. With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which returns tonight, Captain America: Civil War, and Daredevil all set to hit within the next two months, it’s a good time to be a Marvel fan.
