Jed Whedon: “You should expect something” from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

With Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. heading for its mid-season finale tonight (Episode 10) in the USA (Episode 8 airs in the UK this Friday) rumours are running rampant about what might be revealed including the highly speculated Inhumans tie-in (that have been discussed here at Cult Faction)and a possibly Age of Ultron tie-in.

Now show-runner and executive producer Jed Whedon confirmed that the show will connect to the film by saying the following: “You should expect something. The Avengers is the big tent that all the franchises play under. Obviously, we’re included in that.”

Furthermore, Maurissa Tancharoen (also executive prodcuer and show-runner) added “I don’t think any movie has the potential to impact us in the way that Captain America 2 did, but there will be connections.”

While they couldn’t give away any specifics, this is very encouraging to hear and a great way to market their last episode of the year before taking the annoying break.

It is interesting that Tancharoen stated that no other movie would ever be able to impact the show the way The Winter Soldier did, because even though the movie managed to reboot and give the show the honour to build a new S.H.I.E.L.D., I can think of several bigger ways that this film could impact the show including the moment Coulson is revealed to be alive to the Avengers, finding the Inhumans city of Attilan and the implications that could have, Mockingbird meeting Hawkeye, perhaps even Michael Korvac could make an appearance?
