Note: Rumor
Earlier this week the news hit that Kevin Feige would be overseeing all of Marvel creative; bringing Marvel Television under the roof of Marvel Studios. That left many people to wonder what’s going to happen to all of the characters Marvel Television dealt with over the last decade.

While I don’t think anyone really cares about their version of The Inhumans, everyone wants to know about the Netflix characters such as Daredevil.


The #SaveDaredevil campaign has been really picking up steam, but it doesn’t seem to be needed. It sounds like someone very important at Marvel Studios really liked Daredevil and Jessica Jones, so at the very least it sounds like the characters will live on in the MCU.

This does not mean the Netflix series as you remember them are being revived or brought back.

Instead, those characters might (once the moratorium is up and Marvel can use them again) appear in future MCU movies or series. That’s without rebooting them, which means it’s possible that Charlie Cox and Krysten Ritter could continue in the roles. There’s no word yet on Punisher or the popular characters from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

As for the previously mentioned Inhumans? MCU Cosmic reported previously that they would be rebooted by Marvel Studios, and it’s looking like that reboot begins with Ms. Marvel.
Yep... Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

Would have preferred all of them. Jessica Jones and the Punisher don't fit all that well with the films, but I think Jessica Jones could have an Edwin Jarvis style cameo, while the Punisher can get a news reporting.

Daredevil and Luke Cage make the most scene, with Iron Fist coming close. Guess this will have to do, and I don't mind the perfection of the Daredevil series and character sliding into the films one bit!

I feel like if they keep one of the Netflix shows canon, then they all have to be canon, since they all reference each other.

Of cause.

Avengers: Endgame = Agent Carter + WHiH Newsfront = Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. = Daredevil/Jessica Jones/Luke Cage/Iron Fist/The Defenders/The Punisher = Cloak & Dagger = Runaways.

Inhumans can technically be retconed without any consequences, though I'd personally wait. A recast or reboot doesn't mean it's been retconed, but contradictions or out right confirmation it's not canon does.

Most of the reporting strikes me as clickbait rumor mill type stuff. It'll probably be some time before we see the Netflix situation addressed, if at all.
Well I'm inclined to agree, Marvelus and BEJT seem to believe it. I'd give it 40% chance.

RIP Cloak and Dagger. Runaways will probably follow after this season; hopefully they aren't including some crazy cliffhanger. It would be nice if the New Era of Disney + series just left the old run of shows intact in continuity, but I'm not holding my breath at this point.

If they won't acknowledge it, they also won't wipe it from canon, since the events of Runaways are off the radar for the most part. If they did it would be a continuity error, since the tree of references ends up connecting to this series.

RUMOR: New Mutants may be retconned into the MCU

My five cents: Rumor aside, I figure this is the only way I see this not being a 'throw-away' film or failure for Disney. In fact, it would likely be super benefictial for them and it's entirely possible they might have actually planned this already.

Honestly...mutant/X-gene experimentation, they could even tie that in with the Deadpool films. These secret government organizations become aware of these latent superpowers in certain individuals after the 'Blip', and decide to experiment on them through mental and physical torture; similar to what happened to Wade Wilson.

As for how Deadpool could theoretically fit in the MCU timeline - Again, I'll bring up the "The Year of the Dog" line. Because that one joke may ultimately give a decent placement for these films in context.
Chinese New Year 2030 - Year of the Dog (NOT 2018) for his flashback scenes, 2032 for the present day events of the first Deadpool movie and 2033 for Deadpool 2. That gives Marvel 5-7 years to introduce the X-Men in-universe after the most recent MCU film (Spider-Man: Far from Home).

All speculation on my part. Disney might have to cut some stuff that worked solely as jokes (Two in particular: the X-Men prequel actors' cameo in DP 2 and the post credit scene with Wolverine Origins Deadpool) and re-release the two films to make it work within this world.
I do remember one of the Blade films being mentioned in Deadpool, but I guess it doesn't necessarily mean it's about the Superhero Blade I suppose.

Idiot Feige..
WeGotThisCovered is a website built on lies to get clicks. It's 100% not true, and it conflicts with a more trustworthy source claiming Daredevil and Jessica Jones may appear in future films as they were on the series.

If this did happen, it would be a continuity error because of the tree of crossovers that links every show except Inhumans to Avengers: Endgame, since Edwin Jarvis from Agent Carter appeared in it, and WHiH Newsfront too, since that referenced Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S3.

Side note of no importance: Interesting that they would claim an Asian actor would replace Finn Jones. I remember people complaining about Finn Jones because he wasn't Asian. Probably why they put that into their little piece of fiction. Got to say, those people were certainly not fans of Iron Fist, but that's off topic.

Venom, Morbius, potentially Deadpool 1 & 2 (they'll need to edit a couple scenes and explain the time travel differences though) and possibly New Mutants if Disney really did add MCU references in the current version - all retconned into the MCU? Maybe?

We'll see. Maybe we'll get Harry Lloyd reprising his role as (an immortal) Charles Xavier in a future X-Men film, post-Legion timeline. :p

What problems do the Deadpool films contain in regards to a Marvel Cinematic Universe merger? I'd imagine the X-Men cameo would just be how Deadpool is imagining the world, with them actually looking like the actors who portray them in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if they're even actually there, and the helicarrier from Deadpool doesn't have to be a S.H.I.E.L.D. design, it could be from the many different Marvel organisations, since it looks different to S H.I.E.L.D.'s version. They could film the X-Mansion in the same place as in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand, Deadpool and Deadpool 2, if that's a problem.

Wait, I just remembered a Hugh Jackman Wolverine serial in Deadpool 2, so unless that's from Deadpool 2: Super Duper [email protected]%!#& Cut, making the the theatrical cut the canon one in this case, that could be a problem. If we count No Good Deed, Logan was advertised as a fictional movie, though we could say it's a movie about the Marvel Cinematic Universe Wolverine in this case.

Maybe they'll jokingly throw out the first two while keeping Ryan Reynolds. I remember an idea someone had, it was "Deadpool... 3?", and he'd be interrogating some thug and the first two films would simply be a story he told him, think Once Upon A Deadpool. Personally, that would feel really silly to me, but it would work.

I've currently placed the Peter's To-Do List scene after FFH on the viewing order, but I'm unsure as to whether I should change it or not, since it would take place at the beginning of the movie.

React Like if you think I should keep it after FFH.
React Love if you think I should place it before FFH.
