Over the weekend, the Marvel Cinematic Universe saw itself become slightly bigger because of the Guardians of the Galaxy. The superhero squad raced into theatres with its hotly anticipated sequel. What’s more, fans are gobbling up the film. The movie is the very first MCU project this year, clearing a path for different others like Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok.
On the little screen, a huge number of titles are moving towards their release or are under production. In this way, normally, fans are tingling for Marvel Studios to crossover material between the two groups. Furthermore, in an interview, Kevin Feige stated that the MCU may one day merge in TV shows all the more plainly.
Amid a conversation with io9, the leader of Marvel Studios appeared to change his tune on whether the MCU would bring all its projects together. The site quizzed the maker whether a character’s appearance on the TV implied their cinematic future was completely out. Shockingly, Feige said that wasn’t really the case. He said;
“Not necessarily. The future’s a long time. 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.”
His answer makes it seem like there are no such plans being created in the background, yet the likelihood is there. It is not difficult to surmise that Charlie Cox may be told to bring Daredevil to the extra large screen one day. In fact, Chloe Bennett may be entrusted with acquainting Quake with Doctor Strange later on.
Obviously, a lot of Marvel’s shows have taken into account the bigger history of the MCU. As it is, Agents of SHIELD has had Sif on the show; The Battle of New York has been referred to in a few Marvel titles on Netflix. What fans need is for the movies to give a nod to the shows, thereby verifying their week by week canon additions to some extent.
Despite the fact that Feige is presently saying a crossover isn’t impossible, it appears as though Marvel’s actors are still cautious about the combo. As of late, Anthony Mackie told fans at Wizard World Cleveland the concoction would be outlandish. He said;
“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.”
Nevertheless, Daredevil’s star thinks in a different manner. In a previous interview with ComicBook, he felt Matthew Murdock would fit in with the Avengers if given the opportunity. Here’s what Charlie Cox stated;
“Some people have said that they wonder about, based on the tone the show, how Matt would fit in with the Avengers. Well, the actor has some comic book knowledge to drop on you, doubters. I was reading Civil War the other day, and Matt Murdock… is kind of an ass. He’s in the back, standing around grumpy a lot of the time, and every now and again, he just says ‘Well, we’re not doing that’ or something to that effect, and I’m like, ‘That’s the character, we’re fine.’ So tonally, with Matt I think we’re right on point and he’d be a perfect fit in the larger MCU.”
Well, what do you say?
