as a whole.
Except for the fact that Star-Lord, Drax, Moondragon, Jack Flag, Tony Stark
and even Adam Warlock
come from 616 Earth.
Except for the fact that MCU Thanos
definitely provides linkage between "both" parts of the MCU already. As do Thor
and the rest of the Asgardians, and all the other alien gods in the Nine Realms.
Except for the fact that the rumormongers who correctly ID'ed the actual cast of GOTG also stated flatly that John C Reilly's Rhomann Dey
character is a liaison to SHIELD
and answers to Nick Fury.
These "separate" parts of the MCU already coexist. There is nothing there to "merge"......since they're already one and the same universe.
