For years, Marvel Studios and Marvel TV have been touting the phrase “It’s All Connected,” but rarely have they lived up to that promise. Apart from a few references to “the event” in the Netflix shows like Jessica Jones or Daredevil, or cameo appearances from B-characters in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the TV universe have remained largely separate. And as the years have gone by, they’ve branched further and further apart until it seemed impossible for the characters from the separate properties to cross paths. But that hasn’t stopped fans from clamoring for a crossover between the MCU and Marvel TV shows.
But after years of demands, Avengers: Endgame delivered. An Avengers Endgame crossover finally brought together the MCU and Marvel TV, making good on that hashtag #ItsAllConnected.
Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame follow.

Wonder Woman is an icon for our age. Strong, empowering, complex, and compassionate, Gal Gadot’s Diana of Themyscira is the heroine that so many little girls have been dressing up as and looking up to. So why is she always stuck in the past?
For her first two solo movies, Wonder Woman and the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, Diana and her superheroics reside firmly in past decades. And yes, they’re prequel films, and yes, she’s hundreds of years old so you can really place her solo movies whenever you want them. But Wonder Woman’s solo movies getting consistently set in the past is a problem she shares with many of the other major female superheroes today.
When it comes to Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, and reports about the potential Black Widow prequel film, Hollywood can’t seem to competently deal with female superhero stories in the modern age. And as much as we love seeing Gal Gadot in a suffragette suit or Brie Larson rocking the Rachel hair, there’s something fishy about sending many of these major female superheroes back to the past.
