Chloe Bennet upset that Marvel shows aren’t getting recognized by the films


There’s a lot of drama surrounding Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac Perlmutter, which led to Disney stepping in and allowing Feige to report straight to Walt Disney Studios’ Alan Horn. The Marvel Cinematic Universe films have done a great job of acknowledging each other, especially with the recent Captain America: Civil War where we get to see Captain America, Iron Man, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, and many more. However, there hasn’t been a lot of love towards the TV side of things like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Netflix series like Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Sure, the shows make many references to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but we really don’t get to see characters from the films and TV shows crossing over.

Chloe Bennet, who stars in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., is also wondering where the Avengers are at in the TV realm during a Q&A session at Wizard World Des Moines this past weekend.

“I don’t know,” Bennet replied, “People who make movies for Marvel, why don’t you acknowledge what happens on our show? Why don’t you guys go ask them that? Because they don’t seem to care!”

She seems disappointed with the films turning a blind eye and added, “The Marvel Cinematic Universe loves to pretend that everything is connected, but then they don’t acknowledge our show at all. So, I would love to [appear in a Marvel movie], but they don’t seem too keen on that idea.”

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been renewed for a fourth season, but the time has been moved from 9pm to 10pm PT/ET. According to ABC president Channing Dungey, it will let the show “go a little bit edgier, go a little darker, and take some risks.”

Some would think that moving the show back an hour isn’t really an upgrade.
