Should Marvel movie fans also be watching the multiple Marvel television series?

It’s no secret that Marvel movies are almost always a huge success. The television series are doing very good as well. But there are many who don’t realize these shows are tied into this same universe. Do you think those who only watch the films are missing out by not watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Daredevil (on Netflix), and Jessica Jones (also to be available on Netflix)?

  • I think an article about this would be great. I would like to read it if it focused on the pros of watching the shows by bringing up what content or relationships are missed if one doesn't. People like reading articles about the difference in experiences from one thing to another, this could be along the lines of an informative article much like those that detail "what's changed from the book to the movie" etc. Spoiler alerts should of course, be noted, because it should be detailed. Many people will want to read it because they aren't setting out to change their mind to watch it, but because they want a quick fix article to fill them in on what they're missing because they've already planned never to. – Slaidey 9 years ago
  • Yes. Write the article. Did the beginning of Age of Ultron confuse you a bit? Did you feel like you were just thrown into some drama and never given background? They referenced the beginning in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. plot. In order to get the holistic view of the MCU, you should watch everything Marvel puts out. – casswaslike 9 years ago
  • Well...... ya. If you want to know everything thats happening in the MCU you need to watch the entire MCU. Thats the same for every form of media ever. Wanna know the entire story for Assassins Creed Syndicate? Probably a good idea to play all the other games first otherwise you may miss something. – Cojo 9 years ago
