Ever since Agent Coulson first re-appeared from his untimely demise in The Avengers on ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., many have wondered when the time would come for certain Marvel Cinematic Universe TV characters to appear on the big screen. Over the years, there have been a variety of answers from numerous sources from within Marvel, and today another one of them spoke up on the possibility.
In speaking with IGN on the set of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, producer Nate Moore stated, "I think it's possible for sure. It's interesting that the TV timeline and the film timeline moves so differently because they tell stories so quickly because they have 10 to 22 episodes." He went on to add, "Sometimes it's just hard for those things to line up perfectly, but we love that idea of ultimately, say, a Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Punisher, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.... Maybe there's a way to get 'em back in there as long as it makes sense for our storytelling and doesn't prohibit them from telling a story."
According to various producers of S.H.I.E.L.D., the process by which the show operates is that they get to see scripts of upcoming films ahead of time so the shows can respond accordingly. Given Marvel's meticulous planning, it doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility for everyone to get together at some point to hash out a master plan everyone works toward. It's certainly worked for the comics division for decades now.
