WARNING: Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War below
The space between Marvel Studios and Marvel Entertainment has been very clear since Kevin Feige and Disney took the Marvel Cinematic Universe away from the control of CEO Isaac Perlmutter. Jeph Loeb became the head of Marvel’s television efforts, including the numerous Netflix hit series like Daredevil and Luke Cage, but its connection to the Marvel films has since been a long-running debate for fans.
For most people, including us despite past posts having some fun with the idea, the connection between the MCU and the television series like Agents of SHIELD or The Defenders is thin at best. They’re definitely in the universe, but only as a passing mention moving in one direction. The films do not reference anything that happens on the TV shows, especially Agents Of SHIELD which has actually tried to bridge that gap on several occasions.
