As Marvel has continued to grow it’s presence across the world of film, network & cable television and streaming platforms it’s become a bit harder to tell if the phrase “it’s all connected” still applies or not. When it comes to Hulu’s upcoming Marvel’s Runaways reportedly there still will be a connection.
Even though they are on competing streaming platforms, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb said at the Television Critics Association press tour that Marvel’s Runaways will connect to the same world as the Netflix shows like Daredevil, Jessica Jones and The Defenders, according to Decider.
As the tweet shows the extent of the connection between the Hulu and Netflix shows is currently unknown. Technically the Netflix shows are connected to Marvel’s films, as the battle in Avengers has come up a few times as ‘the incident,’ but really the connection is mostly just stated and never really shown.
The same could be true for these shows where they are technically the same universe but since Runaways takes place on the west coast and the Netflix shows are in New York City, they likely won’t ever cross paths or mention too much about one another.
