Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Even as Marvel’s Iron Fist finally completed the sequence of Netflix heroes that will bring us The Defenders team-up, certain fans will never give up hope that the four could join the larger collective of cinematic Avengers. Sadly, The Falcon is none-too-keen on such a crossover, as Anthony Mackie dismisses Marvel’s TV heroes as “different universes, different worlds.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. won’t be back with its “What If” pod until sometime in April, but that isn’t stopping the team from imagining the past four seasons with a Hydra twist. See for yourself, with some clever posters showing how Agents of HYDRA might have unfurled in another reality.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. threw a major curveball for the final Season 4 “pod,” sending the team into a Matrix-like “Framework” that doubles as a “What If” story for Hydra’s rise.

Tuesday’s climactic Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. arc lost all “Self Control” over the LMD arc, ending with one whopper of a twist. Daisy and Simmons headed inside the mysterious “Framework,” revealed as a “What If”-type world with one major Winter Soldier tweak. The closing stinger also teased a major return from the series’ past, which producers now confirm for the final April episodes.
