We've spotted references to events that took place in Marvel Cinematic Universe films in the TV shows, but we have yet to see any Marvel movie reference to events in the shows. There are a lot of intersting events that happened in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil, and I'm sure we're going to see a lot more in their upcoming seasons, plus the Jessica Jones series premiering on Netflix this November. So do we expect to see events in these shows referenced in the films?
During a Q&A promoting the home video release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was asked about this, and he said:
"I think that's inevitable at some point as we're plotting the movies going forward and they're doing the shows. It's easier for them. 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 and Age of Ultron in the show. Going forward and certainly as they begin to do more shows and cast them with such great actors as they have -- particularly Daredevil -- that that may occur. A lot of it is by the time we start doing a movie, they'd be midway through a season; by the time it comes out they'd be done with the second, starting the third season. Finding timing on that is not always easy."
Daredevil definitely deserves to be a mentioned, but it would be more interesting to see Charlie Cox's character become a part of the movies.
When asked during the Q&A, about the possibility of seeing Vincent D'Onforio's Kingpin go up against Peter Parker in a solo Spider-Man film, Feige said:
"I don't know, probably. That would probably be the cool thing to do. That particular scenario has not come up yet."
The wonderful thing about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is how the films feel so connected, and I hope we'll see them connect to the TV series even more by referencing them in films, especially the TV shows that do a fantastic job developing the MCU.
