Exclusive: Anthony Mackie Says Marvel TV and Movie Crossover Wouldn’t Work At All

One thing that many Marvel fans have been hoping to see for some time now is the Marvel TV Universe crossing over into the movies. It’s been rumored, and the movies have been referenced on occasion within the Netflix shows, but nothing really in the movies.

Many actors have said they’d be open to the idea, but nothing has ever happened.

When asked about that prospect, Anthony Mackie had the following to say while speaking at Wizard World Cleveland:

“Different universes, different worlds, different companies, different designs. 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.”

While most fans would love to see it happen, it doesn’t appear likely. We also exclusively reported last November about what Charlie Cox had to say about the potential crossover as well:

“I’d love that too. Those Easter eggs are thrilling to me. As they are to all of you guys, the fans. Sadly, Elden and myself have not been invited to the conversations that take place where they make those decisions. So, until we are invited to those conversations, we have no idea what’s going to happen.”

It looks like we’ll just have to wait and see on a potential Marvel movie and TV crossover.

    The real reason why they won’t crossover is because Feige controls the Marvel movies and Ike Perlmutter controls the Marvel tv and comics business. Feige almost quit because he had to answer to Perlmutter (who is notorious for trying to do everything on the cheap (ask Jon Favreau)), until Disney removed Perlmutter from the Marvel movie-end of things. Feige HATES Perlmutter, and will not work with him. This isn’t secret news. If Disney was smart, they’d remove Perlmutter from the Marvel tv properties as well, and hand them over to Joss Whedon to run.

    I just think it’s upsetting because basically if Agents of SHIELD gets cancelled we are NEVER going to see those characters again. I’m sorry but that’s SO ridiculous. Quake is one of the most well trained SHIELD agents in history and is now a powerful Inhuman. There is no way she wouldn’t be on The Avengers radar. She could probably take down the Falcon with relative ease. I just don’t like the idea that those shows being cancelled would mean the removal of those characters from the MCU.
