Entertainment Weekly has just unveiled the latest Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. poster for season two, episode twenty, titled “Scars”.
As usual, they also had a chance to talk with executive producer Jeff Bell about the artwork and what we can expect from Tuesday’s episode.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I feel like this art shows us Jiaying being very exposed—the marks, the off the shoulder dressing. It fits with her character, since she’s been opening herself up more to Skye and Cal over the past few episodes.
JEFF BELL: It’s a little different this time. There’s an art nuevo illustrator/painter—Alphosne Mucha—that I think of, and this poster really plays into that aesthetic. And I think for the Inhumans world, it really captures it. It’s a more nature-organic, away-from-everybody-else kind of feel. I wish we could’ve shown all those scars over Jiaying the way Marguerite did because I think it’s super cool. And Skye’s little pouty face there. [laughs] It’s a very different palate, it’s a much more muted palate with browns and greens.
This episode opens up the Inhuman world a little bit. Are we going to learn more about Jiaying in terms of how she came to rule Afterlife? Or is that left to the imagination?
I think you’re going to understand her take on it, and why she moved to the middle of nowhere, and why she wants to be left alone, and why she’s willing to go the lengths she goes to in order to protect her people. I think a lot of that comes out.
So is it safe to say we’re building towards Skye making a very conflicted decision about her life as an Inhuman or a S.H.I.E.L.D agent?
It sure feels like it, doesn’t it? It feels like her two worlds are really coming together, and usually that doesn’t bode well for one of them. [laughs]
In last week’s episode, we saw the team come together for the first time in awhile, but we also saw how much they’ve changed. With this episode tying into the fallout from the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, how does that figure into the journey our characters are taking?
Our stories have to stand on their own. We’re not getting blown up like we were last year with Hydra and Captain America, but some elements or some things from the movie do affect some of the relationships in our episodes moving forward, in an interesting and constructive manner.
The poster for “Scars” will be available to purchase from the Marvel store beginning tomorrow afternoon. It’ll cost you $49.99 plus shipping & handling and tax.
As always, for all things Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., be sure to follow along here.
