It’s All Connected? Maybe Not As An ‘Inhumans’ And ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Crossover Sounds Unlikely
While we’ve known that Marvel’s “It’s All Connected” universe has continuously become less so, it seems the largest division in the franchise might be coming internally on ABC. While there were clear ties between ‘Agent Carter’ and ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ it is starting to look like that is less likely to be the case when ‘Inhumans‘ launches later this year. If this will end up proving to be true, it seems extra surprising as the Inhuman race was first featured on ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’
The news comes from ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ co-creator Jed Whedon who is sharing that the two series are going to be separate. While that might change down the line, and should for the fans, it seems like we aren’t going to be seeing Daisy or anyone else showing up in the first season of ‘Inhumans.’
Here is what Whedon had to say:
“Without being able to say anything really about that show, it will have its own world, just as we tried to start our own world. Whether or not there’s a crossover, we will see.
Everything is connected, and that’s fun to play with but the point of our show is to be our show, and we want our fans to be rewarded for watching it without having to watch everything else.
But we also want there to be a bigger reward for people who watch all of them, so that they’ll start to see that there’s lines connecting it. It’s more fun for people who are playing the whole game, but if you don’t, you’ll still have a great rollercoaster ride.”
Honestly with the very concept of ‘Inhumans’ having been introduced to a wider audience outside of us comic geeks in ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ it would seem like a complete let down to not have at least a few tie-ins. No one would expect or want the shows to become thoroughly intertwined, but a bit of a crossover in either mentions or cameos could easily be done in a way to satisfy views.
We’ll see how it plays out when the series kicks out. Who knows, maybe the channel doesn’t have high hopes for a second season pickup after how they failed us with ‘Agent Carter.’
Are you annoyed that we won’t see the two shows tied together in the first season or do you think Jed Whedon might just be dashing our hopes for a surprise cameo? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
‘Inhumans’ will be available in IMAX for two weeks on September 1st, 2017 and debut on ABC on September 26th, 2017.
