Kevin Feige Says Marvel Movies Will Reference TV Shows Eventually



If you watched last night’s premiere of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD you may have noticed a few references to the Marvel movies namely with mention of Sokovia from Avengers 2 and the reference to Ant-Man; however, the Marvel movies have yet to return the favor.

According to Kevin Feige, that looks to be changing as he states the movies will reference the TV shows at some point and says it’s “inevitable.”

“I think that’s inevitable at some point as we’re plotting the movies going forward and they’re doing the shows,” Feige explained during the Avengers 2 Blu-Ray event held yesterday, reports IGN.

Feige did go on to note it’s difficult for the movies to sync up with the TV shows as the various Marvel TV series have different schedules.

“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,” Feige said. “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.”
