With The CW doing their four DC Comics-inspired series crossover event in December, and Netflix about to begin production on Marvel’s “The Defenders” mini-series, crossovers are about to become all the rage for comic book TV shows.
Now though it seems Marvel may be going beyond just “The Defenders”. Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb was on hand at New York Comic Con this weekend and was asked by TV Guide about a possibility that hasn’t really been discussed before – that ABC’s “Agents of SHIELD” and the Marvel Netflix shows could crossover. He responded: “It’s a fair question. And the fair answer is… Stay tuned.”
He then followed that up with a comment to Screen Rant, saying: “I get in trouble every single time I say this, which is #ItsAllConnected. But trust me when I say #ItsAllConnected and that’s about all I can say on it at this time.”
Meanwhile back with DC, it has been revealed that despite “Supergirl” moving to the same network – the universe in her series will remain a different one from that of the other three The CW shows. It was thought that December’s crossover would result in a change that would see Kara’s parallel dimension merge with ours but it seems that not the case.
Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explains it to EW saying any time or space shifts will be: “not for her entire world, but Kara will be traveling from her dimension to our dimension, ‘our’ being the world that The Flash, Arrow, and Legends lives in.”
“Supergirl” returns tonight on The CW,” “Agents of SHIELD” currently airs Tuesdays on ABC.
