We Take Bribes! Extended ‘Age Of Ultron’ Trailer A Win For ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

WINNING

The first half of ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ season one was crap. It was like watching paint dry with the hopes that the dried paint would be awesome. Then ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ happened. It changed the entire game for our spy friends, making them pariahs on the lam. Being hunted by Hydra was the fresh injection the show so desperately needed to stay above water. Still riding that storyline through season 2, the show has no movie plot to adjust its course. But AOS wasn’t out of marketing ideas just yet ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ is still several months away, but that didn’t stop ‘Agents’ from using the film’s hype to entice more viewers. And we totally fell for it. (more…)

While many fans might argue that there haven’t been enough Avengers cameos in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it’s impossible to argue that Marvel is keeping their Cinematic Universe and Television Universes separate. Captain America: The Winter Soldier blew up Agent Coulson’s world right in front of him. Now it’s time for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to return the favor by airing the first trailer for director Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron during next week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode. (more…)

USE THIS SCHIELD

The Marvel Cinematic Universe and its cohesion with television and film has its fine line, sure. But it’s also very impressive in how it manages to represent their coexistence effectively. Whether it’s making a TV star out of Agent Coulson, who was once just relegated to cameos, or dropping Sif or Maria Hill into episodes of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, we’re always reminded that the worlds do collide in harmony. Well, if it ain’t broke, don’t beat it with an Infinity Stone, I always say. And because Marvel listens to me (huh??) let’s be prepared for an interesting appearance in the new season of ‘Agents.’ And by interesting, I mean retro. If you guessed Captain America, you’d be wrong. Close…but wrong. (more…)

“Not agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., just agents of… nothing”

With last week’s episode showing that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can hold the weight of being the MCU tie-in that we all wanted it to be, this episode asked the question of “Can they keep it up?”  While the answer to that may have been obvious to most viewers, we’ve definitely got an idea of what we can expect from here on out.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. went from the show everyone couldn’t wait to love, to one of the most disappointing endeavours in the history of television. Indeed, instant reaction to the show was so dire that Screen Rant published an article about how the series could be improved within days of the airing of the premiere episode. Of course, no one’s saying that the show is, or was, perfect, but one thing’s for sure, the fallout from Captain America: The Winter Soldier is surely going to change what it means to be an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. from here on out. Obviously, major spoilers are below. (more…)
