‘The Defenders’ Will Meet ‘The Avengers’ “If The Story Warrants It”, Says Jeph Loeb

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Executive Vice President and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, talked about whether or not The Defenders will ever meet The Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“You’re trying to trap me into saying, ‘hashtag, it’s all connected.’ If the story warrants it, we will obviously do our best to have folks cross into each other’s story lines.”

Additionally, Loeb briefly discussed communication between the Marvel movies and television.

“We certainly communicate with each other in terms of what we’re doing and what we have planned and the characters that we’re using and where it’s all going. Unfortunately for me as a fan, I tend to know more about what’s happening in the movies than I want to know.”

Do you think we’ll see the teams crossover? Drop your speculation in the comments below.
