One thing noticeably absent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies is the characters from the Netflix shows. When Marvel’s Daredevil started in 2015, fans thought we’d see more crossovers. So far, we’ve had none.
At ACE Comic Con in Long Island this past weekend, star of the show Charlie Cox was asked about potential movie characters appearing on Daredevil, and he said:
“I’m afraid I can’t tell you that at all. That is a secret.”
He did say he’d like to see Iron Man on the show, and joked about Robert Downey Jr.’s famously high pay rate:
“I think he’s quite cheap to get as well. I’m sure we can figure that out. His daily rate is like way low.”
“Our partners are Marvel, and if we’re doing something that’s counter to [their continuity], they would pull us back or orient us on the right path, so clearly we’re [okay]. But we’re very much in our own world.”
While it’s not impossible that it’ll happen in the future, it seems very unlikely at this point. There have been plenty of references to the movies in the shows, but it hasn’t gone the other way around.
Kevin Feige has said it will happen, but he’s not sure when:
“…I don’t really know, but there are a lot of TV shows being made, and hopefully we’ll continue to make a lot of movies. At some point, there’s going to be a crossover. Crossover, repetition, or something.”
Here’s hoping it does – sometime soon.
