One of the main reasons so many people have taken to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the interconnectedness of it all. At the same time, the attention to continuity and building a new superhero canon has wreaked no small amount of havoc on the creative end, where producers and writers and directors have all butted heads in various ways. The latest bit of weirdness comes via the increasingly honest Joss Whedon, who hasn’t been shy about his friction with Marvel Studios while he’s been promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron. According to Whedon, Marvel Studios wasn't very happy with the decision to make a TV show starring a character (Agent Coulson) they had just killed off in the movies.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has performed an impressive amount of legwork setting up The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but for many a Marvel fan, it always comes back to Coulson standing side-by-side with his fellow Avengers. That reunion may yet take awhile, as Joss Whedon apparently still considers Phil Coulson dead, as of the Age of Ultron.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been doubling down on potential spinoffs and Age of Ultron connections over the last week, and "The Frenemy of My Enemy" was no exception. Find out what pit the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. against Hydra against Deathlok against the Inhumans against Skye's father by our full review, and and which scene might directly lead into Age of Ultron!
The past few weeks, Marvel’s TV universe has been abuzz with news of potential for an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff, as well as a possible Ms. Marvel series. Speculation has run the gamut, but now it seems Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter have been chosen to lead the spinoff, giving us a good idea of its premise.
Captain Marvel got a major shot in the arm with the studio’s confirmation of Nicole Perlman and Meg LaFauve as the film’s writers, but fan-favorite Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan may beat her idol into the MCU. A new rumor suggests that ABC’s John Ridley-helmed series is none other than the Muslim-American superhero, potentially to be paired with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff.
The moment Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was announced, fans wondered if any Avengers might pop in on Coulson’s new adventures. Recent rumors suggested Netflix’s Defenders might instead cross over to celluloid in Avengers: Infinity War, but a new report offers surprising insight on which MCU TV characters may make the leap, and what it would take to see Avengers on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Late last week, surprising rumors emerged that Marvel would develop an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff for ABC, the focus of which would become clear by Season 2's end. Now, another report has arrived claiming 12 Years A Slave writer John Ridley has partnered with Marvel to develop another ABC series, but is it the same potential spinoff?
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has inspired plenty of theories on Season 2’s Age of Ultron connection, Inhumans, or even a Secret Warriors spinoff, but the Avengers-adjacent drama has at least one major tie to the next big-screen epic. Cobie Smulders has confirmed her return to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. before the Season 2 finale, but what brings Maria Hill back in Coulson’s orbit?
Late last week, word broke that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was already looking to set up its own spinoff, the comic bent of which would become clear by the Season 2 finale. Tonight’s May-centric “Melinda” finally gave us the titular agent’s backstory, but may also have broken the spinoff wide open with Coulson forming a super-team of his very own.
If it weren’t clear already, we’ve officially entered the superhero TV arms race. Not content with Daredevil or its three followups into The Defenders, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has officially begun development of a new potential spinoff for ABC, but who might take the lead, and what does it mean for Agent Carter?
