Kevin Feige Thinks That Eventually, Marvel TV And Movies Will Cross Over

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige has crushed the dreams of every fan still holding out hope that >The Defenders and >The Avengers will eventually cross over.

The TV and film divisions of Marvel Studios have been kept separate over the last few years, creating a strange situation where TV heroes like Luke Cage and the Agents of SHIELD only make cryptic references to the larger MCU.

Fans continue to clamour for these two worlds to collide on the big screen someday, particularly now that Netflix has assembled its own Defenders super-team with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

The question of a crossover was put directly to Kevin Feige is a recent Q&A with >Allocine, and unfortunately his answer was anything but encouraging.

"Maybe someday. No plans right now," the Marvel Studios boss answered. "Maybe someday, but we have a lot of characters in the MCU, and one of the things that is so special about those characters on the Netflix shows is their dynamic together.

"They are all combining to become The Defenders later this year and are doing their own thing."

Boo to you! Unfortunately, Feige's reticence to combine Marvel's film and TV universe is shared by Avengers: Infinity War star Anthony Mackie — who plays The Falcon.

"Different universes, different worlds, different companies, different designs," he argued. "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."

It definitely would work, but whatever. We'll just have to enjoy our Marvel heroes separately when The Defenders premieres on Netflix on August 18 and Avengers: Infinity War hits cinemas on April 27, 2018 in the UK and May 4, 2018 in the US.
