After rumors surfaced that Disney “compelled” ABC to give Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. this, their 5th season, we were all pretty sure it would be the original MCU tie-in show’s last. All year long, people involved in the show kept saying they wrote this season as if it would be the last. Expectations were minimum. Thank goodness the fans showed up.
Announced just a minutes ago, AoS will be returning for a 6th season! Next year will bring back Coulson (we hope) and his crew for another 13 episodes. Thirteen is a far cry from the massive 24 episode run they had just a season ago, but at this point, we’ll take what we can get. Will we get more tie-ins to the half-genocided larger MCU? Will events of Avengers 4 play a role? Contact us and share your thoughts! Also, don’t forget to tune into the podcast we’ll be releasing later today to discuss it – we may bring up your question or opinion!
We are officially one month away from the gigantic team up known as Avengers:Infinity War. Amidst all of the posters, trailers and tv spots we officially begin production on the latest avenger, Captain Marvel.
In a press release from Marvel Studios announcing the start of production on Captain Marvel, The stuido has confirmed 3 new cast members that are for sure to get the fans even more excited; Clark Gregg, the beloved Agent Phil Coulson from the earliest Marvel Cinematic Universe films and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., along with Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace, who both previously appeared in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Hearing that Phil Coulson is in the film makes all the sense in the world given that the film is set in the 90s and features Samuel L. Jackson as a younger two-eyed Nick Fury, director of S.H.I.E.L.D. This will be the first Marvel Studios film that Gregg has appeared in since his on-screen death in 2012’s Avengers, even though he has been the lead character in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. after being brought back to life a few times.
Pace played Ronan the Accuser in Guardians, a member of the Kree alien race, who are central to the Captain Marvel plot. Hounsou played Korath the Pursuer, an accomplice of Ronan. Given the prominent role of the Kree in Captain Marvel mythology, a return from both characters seems like a natural fit.
In what we considered to be one of the best action-based shows on television last season, and easily our favorite full-slate superhero TV show last year, Agents Of Shield has dropped their first promos for it’s upcoming 5th season!
We’ve talked about the show almost not getting renewed, save for Disney intervening, an issue mired in cost of production and not quality of entertainment. While it’s interesting that they follow that with a season set in space, the promo looks like the team is back, the writing is on point, and there are a few interesting characters showing up as well.
Agents Of Shield returns on December 1st, a move to Friday, but we’re looking forward to returning it to our regular sessions of recaps and reviews! Make sure you don’t miss them on our podcasts!
