Marvel’s TV catchphrase might shout Everything’s Connected but that isn’t how things have been going on the film side of things.
One particular S.H.I.E.L.D or Hydra agent went from the films to the TV show and again back to the films with Captain America Winter Soldier and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 1, besides Jason Sitwell, there hasn’t been a lot in the world of MCU to acknowledge that the one on the TV actually exist.
With the success of Marvel TV and Netflix collaborations Daredevil and Jessica Jones, this is actually more prevalent now than ever. By the time Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 releases on May 2018, we will also have Iron Fist and Luke Cage and the entire team-up adventure of The Defenders.
