A difficult transition?
Clearly the main debate of bringing Marvel characters on Netflix to the MCU plots is based, mainly, on how this transition would take place without it being forced or strange to viewers.
However, it is possible that it can be adopted naturally to some extent, since the aforementioned portal comments that, for example, Daredevil winked at the battle against the Chitauri in The Avengers by citing it as “the incident”. Meanwhile, Luke Cage made various references to Thor and Iron Man in his first season.
On the other hand, there has also been talk of the presence of Matt Murdock in No way home, which could be a kind of experiment for ‘The house of ideas’ regarding the aforementioned process.
