Even though the television series Agents of SHIELD takes place in the Marvel cinematic universe, there has still be a significant disconnect between the Marvel Studios show on ABC and their feature films. The biggest piece of evidence pointing to a lack of cooperation between the two Marvel entities is the fact that Agents of SHIELD probably won’t cross over with the Inhumans movie (which has been pulled from Marvel’s schedule, but will still get made eventually), even though they share an entire species of superpowered characters from Marvel Comics. And it sounds like one of Marvel’s TV stars is a bit annoyed by that.

As other film studios race to catch up to Marvel, Marvel is moving ahead. One of their most exciting announcements last year was the fact they’d be bringing four TV shows direct to Netflix, culminating in a fifth team-up series. The first of those will be the New York-set Daredevil, run and written by Drew Goddard.
