Deadline was able to transcribe quotes from Marvel’s Kevin Feige at Disney+ virtual panel at TCA press tour, the company’s chief creative officers talked about the possibility of the Netflix shows finding a second life. While he pointed out that some online rumors are completely wrong he sounds open to the idea down the line.
FEIGE: “I think we probably could do it, I think a lot of that stuff comes back to us. There’s always rumors online about things reverting, sometimes that’s true, sometimes it’s not, but I’m not exactly sure of the exact contracts but perhaps someday.”
You might remember that Feige took over Marvel Television after the exit of Jeph Loeb and re-branded the division as Marvel TV Studios with Kevin overseeing the shows under the same umbrella as the feature films. The Netflix shows included Daredevil, The Punisher, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. We currently don’t have any official word on the fate of those characters and if they’ll be heading to the MCU anytime soon.
Jessica Henwick also revealed Marvel Television had been considering a Daughters of The Dragon spinoff and a Ghost Rider series was killed in development stages.
There have been plenty of rumors about character rivals and shows carrying-over but none of that has actually been made official. Feige’s comments here does suggest there might be some truth behind some of them, but what they are he isn’t sharing.
Disney+’s mature section Star could give Marvel Studios a home for more graphic characters.
