For those hoping to see Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist in the MCU soon, it looks like you've got a long wait on your hands.
In the past, Marvel has been rather vague on intertwining their television universe with their film universe. Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige was recently asked about the possibility of those Netflix characters showing up anytime soon (via ScreenGeek), and the odds don't look promising.
"Maybe someday. No plans right now. 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."
Something is clearly working with both their Film and Netflix universes, so it is understandable that Marvel doesn't really want to rock the boat if they can help it. While it would be wonderful to see these characters interact with the Avengers and Guardians, Feige does make a valid point that there are already numerous characters in the MCU to keep track of, and adding more just for the sake of doing so isn't perhaps the best long term decision.
As long as Marvel doesn't cast their own film version of these characters, it really shouldn't be an issue going forward.
Up next for Marvel is Spider-Man: Homecoming, and you can find the official synopsis below.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
The cast includes Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. It also includes Jon Favreau, Martin Starr, Kenneth Choi, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., JJ Totah, and Hannibal Buress.0comments
