Ever since the release of Marvel's “Daredevil” (and even dating back to “A.G.E.N.T.S. Of Shield”), fans have been clamoring for the company’s Netflix heroes to get a shot on the big screen. But while thoughts of characters like Daredevil and Jessica Jones interacting with Captain America and Iron Man have fans begging for some sort of crossover, Marvel’s latest TV star doesn’t think it’s going to happen.
“Luke Cage” star Mike Colter was asked during an interview with Power 105.1 FM’s Breakfast Club morning radio program about the chances audiences could see him - or other Netflix series characters - make their way into the films. Alas, much like “Daredevil” star Charlie Cox, Colter doesn’t think it’s going to be happening anytime soon. As Cox and others have said before, the content of the Netflix series simply might not mesh with the movie universe Marvel has curated.
“What we do is really unique," Colter explained. "We’re adult kind of oriented. We’re not PG-13. We’re not really for the mass audiences, crowd pleasing, family oriented. We have sex scenes. We have, you know, adult situations, and while I think it’d be nice to be in the films, I don’t know if we want to dilute what we’re doing that makes us very unique."
This does line up with what Marvel has said in the past regarding the continuity of the MCU and the Netflix worlds for their shows, so it’s not too surprising hearing it confirmed again. Marvel surely has enough on its plate in terms of planning for “Avengers: Infinity War”, and getting every actor together to shoot a movie might require some miraculous scheduling on their part. Still, it is disappointing to think that we may never get a chance to see some of these actors shine on a bigger stage.
Colter did go on to clarify that while he, personally, doesn't think it's possible, at the end of the day, the choice is not his. “That being said, you know Marvel, if they can make it work I’m sure it’d be nice, but it’s really scheduling. They schedule movies years in advance, we’re shooting TV series year round. It’s very tough to just kind of make things just work the way you want to because it’s just so much going on.” While it may seem like a stretch at this point, it's not out of the realm of possibilities for comic book fans to finally get their dream encounters. Heck, considering Marvel was finally able to get Spider-Man back in the fold, anything is possible.
