Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has sort of been the red-headed stepchild of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a while. During season one, the series was stuck in neutral as the calender clicked down to the release of Captain America: The Winter Solider, and in season two, Coulson and the gang played a key role in Avengers: Age of Ultron that went unacknowledged in the big screen adventure in what should have been one of their finest hours. Is all that about to change? Might the Agents soon take their rightful place in the MCU (there is a comic book based on the characters now after all) with this season’s adventure? Let’s give a hint with one word: Inhuman. (more…)

Before he was the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. on the weekly adventures of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Phil Coulson was the guy that kept popping up around the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the everyman that made contact with all of the Avengers before they became Avengers. Everybody liked Coulson, which is why it was such a gut punch when Loki killed him in the first Avengers movie. Of course, the popularity of the character, and the actor who portrays him, Clark Gregg, led to his resurrection on TV, and a transfer to the comic books and the regular Marvel Four-Color Universe. But the question on a lot of people’s mind is whether or not Coulson might be back to lend the Avengers a hand in the upcoming sequel Agent of Ultron? And according to rumor control, he might be.

“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.

Following-up on last night’s awesome tie-in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be welcoming back a senior member of the now-compromised world security organization for an episode late this month. True, it was reported early this week that Col. Nick Fury in the person of Samuel L. Jackson would be back for S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s season finale, but Maria Hill, and her portrayer, Cobie Smulders, will be back before the end of April. If that’s all you want to know, bail now because Winter Soldier and S.H.I.E.L.D. spoilers follow. (more…)
