It’s “inevitable”: Marvel movies will ultimately reference the TV shows in the Cinematic Universe.
“I think that’s inevitable at some point as we’re plotting the movies going forward and they’re doing the shows,” Feige said, per IGN.
In addition to ABC’s “Agents of Shield” (Marvel’s first live-action TV series) and “Agent Carter,” the studio has also produced a slew of Netflix series. “Daredevil” premiered last year to rave reviews and “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist” and “The Defenders” are all on the horizon. The studio is also developing an “Agents of Shield” companion series, “Mockingbird.”

With the release this week of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" on Blu-ray and DVD, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has given a lengthy interview with several outlets regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. All sorts of topics were covered so here are the key basics:
Feige says the third film isn't just another entry in a series - rather:
"It's very much, in a certain way, the completion of a Captain America trilogy. I think one day you'll look back and watch and it'll be one of the most unique and different trilogies ever around a single character."
Small Screen Crossovers
We've seen some of the big screen Marvel film characters making appearances on the small screen universe such as Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Sif (Jaimie Alexander) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) showing up on "Agents of Shield". Will we ever see the reverse? »

Fans of Jack Reacher can cease all letter-writing campaigns. The sequel is on its way and Vickie Thomas Casting is finding all the requisite bad guys. “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” will put Tom Cruise back into the military sniper’s shoes and give him a surprise: a wife and kids. The film, also featuring Cobie Smulders, is based on the book by Lee Child, and will find Reacher discovering he has fathered a family he has no memory of while simultaneously being charged with assault. New Orleans will host the shoot that begins in late October. Maury Povich is prepping his delivery of the dramatic paternity verdict.

We already know that director Joss Whedon has no plans for an Avengers: Age of Ultron director's cut. But when the Blu-ray drops in a couple of weeks, we will get to see some of the deleted scenes that didn't make it into the movie. Fans noticed that there were a lot of unanswered questions in Avengers: Age of Ultron when it arrived this past May, especially when it came to Thor and his quest in the movie. Now, we get to see a little bit more of his secondary story in a scene that shows the God of Thunder and Dr. Selvig entering Norn Cave.
Thor is being consumed by visions after having been 'touched' by Scarlet Witch. He goes into Norn cave looking for answers, with Selvig there to help document the experience, and assist if anything goes wrong. The doctor sees the mission as nothing but dangerous. »

Jack Reacher was something of a surprise, and was just one more step toward Tom Cruise reinventing himself and his career. Frankly, the idea sounded stupid going in, but Cruise nailed the role, and if the film wasn’t perfect, it’s hard to blame it on him.
News of a sequel is something of a surprise as well, though only because I didn’t really think Cruise would be interested. Apparently, he’s up for it, and hopefully there’s a script worth shooting.
Cobie Smulders, Aldis Hodge, and Danika Yarosh are already attached, and now the film has found it’s villain. Variety reports that Patrick Heusinger, who got a lot of attention via Bravo’s Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce, will play the villain of the story, though there aren’t a lot of details. The story of the first film was pretty straightforward in terms of »

Paramount Pictures has been filling roles left, right and center ahead of the November start date for Jack Reacher 2, with Danika Yarosh and How I Met Your Mother alum Cobie Smulders both tapped for the action sequel. One part that had been left vacant, however, was that of the lead villain, though Variety reports that the studio has finally found the actor who will be causing all sorts of problems for Tom Cruise’s returning super solider come next year – that is, Black Swan and Quantum Break star Patrick Heusinger.
Joining the nascent project as “The Hunter,” Paramount has offered up precious few details about Heusinger’s true identity in the actioner, lest fans of Lee Child’s source material identify his character ahead of time.

Ed Zwick directs the film from a script he adapted based on Lee Child's book "Never Go Back". In the story, Reacher returns to his old military base in Virginia where the female commanding officer has been arrested.

With shooting scheduled to start in November, co-writer/director Ed Zwick is locking in the elements he needs for Jack Reacher 2. He now has Patrick Heusinger in talks to play the film’s villain. Zwick has been developing the sequel to Christopher McQuarrie’s film based on Lee Child’s book series. He and usual co-writer Marshall Herskovitz honed a Richard Wenk draft of the script adapted from Never Go Back, which finds Reacher (played once again by Tom Cruise) travelling from South Dakota to his old military base in Virginia, to be charged with a violent incident and faced with a paternity case, neither of which transgression he remembers. Heusinger joins Aldis Hodge, Danika Yarosh and Cobie Smulders in the likely list of Cruise co-stars, assuming all of their deals close. He’s been seen in such films as Frances Ha, Black Swan and The Nanny Diaries and »
