Marvel: non-Disney + series are not canon in the MCU, claims James Gunn

The Marvel Extended Universe dared to venture into the small screen through Disney Plus. WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki were a success although they were not the only shows that had the Marvel Studios seal.

Long before the three shows saw the light, Netflix, ABC, Freeform, and Hulu were home to several titles that had already expanded the MCU; however, none are now considered canon. Next, we share what they are:

  • Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD
  • Marvel’s Agent Carter
  • Marvel’s Inhumans
  • Marvel’s Runaways
  • Marvel’s Helstrom
  • Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger
  • Daredevil
  • Jessica jones
  • Iron fist
  • Punisher
  • Luke Cage.

Through Twitter, a user pointed out that Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter belonged to the same universe as the MCU movies, then the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn, assured that he was wrong.

“That is incorrect. There was never any coordination between the previous television stuff and the cinematic side of Marvel, like now that they are all under the grasp of Marvel Studios, ”were the filmmaker’s words.

The tweet took several fans by surprise because they expected the aforementioned shows to eventually become part of the MCU. Most likely, Marvel Studios decides to give the heroes a reboot and ignore what was done before with them when introducing them.

Currently, the company already has the rights to Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Punisher and Luke Cage again.
