One of the biggest questions fans of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe have had since “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” was first announced was exactly how much crossover the films would have with the television shows. After all, the big hook for “AoS” when it was announced was the involvement of Clark Gregg, better known as Agent Coulson or “Iron Man” and “Avengers” fame.
But while the events unfolding on the big screen have certainly impacted not only “AoS” but “Agent Carter” and “Daredevil” as well, with the exception of some relatively brief cameos and guest appearances, it’s been the shows chasing after the films rather than the give-and-take crossovers fans are clamoring for. However, that may soon change, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
“I think that’s inevitable at some point, as we’re plotting the movies going forward and the shows,” Feige responded at a resent press conference to a question about if and when Marvel’s Cinematic Universe see references in the films to events form the various television series.
Of course, things aren’t as simple as simple as having James Spader don a mo-cap suit so Ultron can guest star in an episode of “Jessica Jones.” “The schedules do not always quite match up to make that possible. It’s easier for [television],” Feige continued, explaining why the TV shows have tended to reference the films more often than the movies do the television series. “They’re more nimble and faster and produce things quicker than we do, which is one of the main reasons you see the repercussions of ‘Winter Soldier’ or ‘Age of Ultron’ in the show. But going forward and as they get to do more shows, and cast them with such great actors they have, particularly in the “Daredevil” show, that may occur. A lot of it is, by the time we start doing a movie, they’d be mid-way through a season. By the time our movie comes out, they’d be done with the second and starting the third season. So finding the timing on that is not always easy.”
