Season one of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. saw S.H.I.E.L.D. collapse after the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While season two has seen the show lead the way, instead of just reacting to the events of the films, with the introduction of Inhumans into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With Captain America: Civil War set to come out next May, it looks as though the show will continue to lead the way.
During an interview with Comicbook.com, Clark Gregg (Director Phil Coulson), explained how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will tie into next year’s Captain America: Civil War and what role the index may play.
Regarding the Civil War story-line, Gregg had this to say:
“If you’ve ever read any of the Civil War comics, you’ll know that S.H.I.E.L.D. is very much part of a group that’s trying to register the superheroes, and that really divides and forces some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents – especially those with connections to people who have powers that can feel personal – to really decide which side of that conflict they’re on. Iron Man and Cap end up on, in the comics anyway, opposite sides of it. There’s always changes in the way they do that in the cinematic universe. I think, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. 2.0, you’re seeing some of the first ripples of those different points of view on what S.H.I.E.L.D. should be when it’s rebuilt. I’m very, very curious to know which side Coulson will end up on in that struggle.”
When asked about the possibility of the index being used in the same capacity of the Superhuman Registration Act database, Gregg had this to say:
“If it isn’t what it becomes, it’s certainly going to be one of the main bibliography notes, you know what I mean?” Gregg said. “If Coulson sees a thing that he’s been so instrumental in using and building in order to keep track of people with powers, if he sees that being used to persecute people he cares about, it’s going to cause a real crisis of faith.”
If you’ve been keeping up with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., you’ll know that tensions have been high since the team discovered Skye’s powers and what she is capable of. There is a clear divide building, one that’s evident in the most recent clip for tonight’s episode titled “Scars”. It’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out over the final episodes of this season, and how the story-line continues into the third season.
Also, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that tonight’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will answer some questions viewers had regarding certain scenes in the film. So be sure to tune in!
As always, for all things Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. be sure to follow along here.
