Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ brings Season 4’s ‘LMD’ program to a peak with “The Man Behind the Shield,” but can the series handle another four (!) evil robots in its midst? And are we getting ready to leave the series on a high note? Find out in our full review of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s latest!
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. surprised every Ghost Rider fan with the reveal behind Robbie Reyes first taking on the mantle of Vengeance, including a surprise cameo that went mysteriously unnamed. Now, stars Clark Gregg and Reyes himself, Gabriel Luna tip their hands toward the Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider indeed having sped through “The Good Samaritan.”
The addition of Ghost Rider seemingly confirmed that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. intended to skew darker with Season 4's timeslot move to 10:00 P.M., though one has to wonder what a more adult version of the show looks like. According to the cast and crew, Season 4 will very much have an “after dark” feel, apparently with a heaping helping of sideboob.
For all the Inhumans, Hydra villains and Marvel zombies populating Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in its 2016 return, the team has some pretty dark spaces of their own. Enter the first clip from next Tuesday’s “Bouncing Back” premiere, as Coulson takes Fitz to a pretty dark place in pursuit of Gideon Malick.
Agent Carter’s second season will crash land this coming Tuesday, just one week out from the Secret Warrior-infused Season 3 return of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We’ve already seen a few tidbits, but the gates are officially open, as Coulson meets President Ellis and the team chases Inhumans in 2016 premiere photos for “Bouncing Back.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been bursting at the seams for its Season 3 return “Bouncing Back,” while poor Zombie Ward is just bursting with parasites. Now, a new synopsis for the 2016 return has the team uncertain what to make of their new foe, while Clark Gregg discusses the possibility of tying into Captain America: Civil War.
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.
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.
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.”
Disney may be having itself quite a weekend, but another corner of the empire will start to pull focus in 2016, as Marvel fans gear up for Captain America: Civil War. 2016 will also mark the 75th anniversary of the character, for which ABC has drafted an hour-long Cap special to air just before the Season 2 premiere of his best gal, Agent Carter.
