Marvel fans aching for Daredevil to meet Spider-Man — or the Punisher to meet Captain America — might have quite a while to wait. In an interview with io9, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige addressed the question of when the crossover would occur:

"It’s about finding the right way to do that. And the honest answer is, movies are developed so far in advance that a lot of those things [Inhumans, Hydra monsters, etc.] weren’t done when we started to film [Captain America: Civil War].
"Or, if we were to do something in a film that absolutely handcuffs what the team can do in season 2 of whatever show, they don’t want to be handcuffed. They shouldn’t be handcuffed. It’s just finding the right time and right place to do it.
"Look, I love heroes. I love seeing as many heroes as possible interacting and surprising fans with their presence but, like Spider-Man, Ant-Man and Black Panther in this movie, like Falcon in Ant-Man, it just has to be absolutely blended with the story at hand, and not just, ‘Hey who is that who just drove past?’ That would be easy. We could do that in post—but that, I think, does a disservice to the characters."

Some fans will note how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s first season was altered significantly by the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier — not to mention cameos by Maria Hill and Nick Fury — but it's likely those sort of massive broad-stroke plot points will still be reflected across the board.

It sounds like Feige is instead referring to specific characters having involved storylines between the movies and television shows.

Someday, maybe.
Someday, maybe.
