Much as we’ve adored the first few weeks of Agent Carter Season 2, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans are eager to pick up on the 2015 cliffhanger that saw Grant Ward manifesting yet another Inhuman threat. Say no more, S.H.I.E.L.D. fans, as the first 2016 synopsis has arrived, leading the team to bounce back with a pursuit of even more super-powered Secret Warriors!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
It’s reasonably fair to say that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. commands the least respect of the TV branch, always catering itself to the movies, while the Netflix series garner praise at every turn. The Avengers-adjacent drama has gotten significantly stronger in Seasons 2 and 3, but now answers for its Marvel-ous crimes in the latest Honest Trailer.
Whether the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff itself is Most Wanted, Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter are one step closer to their own series. The pilot spinoff has officially added Delroy Lindo in the role of Marvel adventurer Dominic Fortune, bringing Marvel’s Most Wanted a little more into focus.
The other day saw John Ridley confirming that his long-developing Marvel TV series was still in the mix, even as no one knows what, or when the project represents. And even as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gears up for a spinoff, it seems another live-action comedy behind Marvel’s Damage Control may be in contention for the ever-expanding universe.
Poor Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. First, Joss Whedon flat-out admits that the TV series get “leftovers” from their cinematic brethren, and now S.H.I.E.L.D.’s one major Marvel tie-in may not get the attention it deserves either. According to Clark Gregg, none of Agents’ work with the Inhumans of Marvel lore may end up tying into the 2019 movie version after all.
As Marvel gears up to shoot the pilot of its Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff Most Wanted, there’s been significantly less movement around American Crime head John Ridley’s top-secret Marvel TV series. Ridley himself confirms that the series remains in development, though we’re no closer to learning what it actually is.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. remains benched until March, following Agent Carter’s Season 2 return, but at least one other Agent remains active. Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and partner Lance Hunter will still have their day, as ABC confirms a pilot order for their Most Wanted spinoff series.
A ways back, Avengers director and ex-Marvel mainstay Joss Whedon seemed to cast shade at ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. over Coulson’s resurrection, despite he himself directing the pilot, noting that movies would consider the character dead. Now, Whedon clarifies his comments, denying he regrets keeping Clark Gregg in his badass role, even as Marvel TV tends to get the movies’ “leftovers.”
Tonight’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ closed out 2015 with two shocking (and pretty brutal) deaths, but did “Maveth” completely pull a Glenn? And are we any closer to figuring out the identity of our mysteriously apocalyptic Inhuman? Find out in our full review!
Tonight’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ kicked off the beginning of the end with a hugely surprising death, but is Ward’s villainy in desperate need of “Closure”? And are we any closer to this mysteriously apocalyptic Inhuman? Find out in our full review!
