Though Marvel’s films take place in the same universe as their television shows, any form of crossover happening between the two is highly unlikely. True, we’ve seen a bit of it on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, but for the most part, the big and small screen don’t cross paths or have much to do with one another – aside from the odd reference or nod here and there. That being said, it’s not as if fans aren’t eager to have such a thing happen more often.
While it would no doubt be incredible to see heroes like Jessica Jones and Daredevil teaming up with the Avengers to take on Thanos in Infinity War, we wouldn’t hold our breath. Instead, there’s a better possibility of seeing some of the supporting characters make the transition, and one fan-favorite pick is Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin, »

You ask a random sampling of people who their favorite Star Wars character is, and there's a good-to-fair chance that one name will stand above all others: Han Solo. He's everyone's favorite lovable scoundrel (just don't call him scruffy looking!). We've known for some time that Lucasfilm is working on a film that would center on the smuggler's younger days, and it now looks like we may meet the man who taught him to be such a charming cad in the first place.
