Kevin Feige Weighs In On The Possibility Of An AVENGERS-Style Team-Up Series On Disney+
It feels like Marvel Studios is laying the groundwork for a big team-up on Disney+, and Kevin Feige has weighed in on whether that's the plan while teasing the impact these shows will have on the MCU...
While Marvel Studios is as secretive as ever when it comes to their future plans, all the signs appear to be pointing to the Young Avengers assembling in the Marvel Cinematic Universe very soon.
Characters like Speed, Wiccan, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, America Chavez, and Kid Loki have either been introduced or will eventually show up in the next few years, with the prevailing theory being that this team is set to take centre stage on Disney+.
However, in a recent interview to promote Black Widow, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige made it clear there isn't a divide between what we see in movies and on TV. "Well, maybe," he said of a possible team-up series on the streaming service. "Again, we don't really look at it. We're not looking at it as TV teams or movie teams, it's all one universe now, it's all one big MCU."
"I hope what people have taken away from WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki, and seeing Black Widow soon, is how unique and different all the corners of the MCU can be," the filmmaker continued. "That's what Disney+ has given us, is an ability to tell more deeper, further stories that will have ramifications across features and series."
This is quite the departure from how things were handled when Marvel Television was in charge of these small screen stories, and that's a related topic fans have been talking about recently.
Why? Well, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn has cast further doubt on whether they could be considered canon with the following Tweet:

That’s incorrect. There was never any coordination between the earlier TV stuff & the cinematic side of Marvel like there is now that they’re all under the purview of Marvel Studios.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) July 2, 2021
