One of the best parts about the first season of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ was seeing how ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ affected the Marvel Cinematic Universe at large. That was a huge bomb to be dropped and it most certainly had an effect on everything in that world, especially the organization that was at the center of it all. But with ‘Captain America: Civil War‘ just around the corner, will we be feeling the reverberations from the Sentinel of Liberty’s latest big screen adventure on our television sets mere days later? We finally have the answer from one of the showrunners.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the cast of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ shared who they would side with if they had to choose between Team Cap or Team Iron Man. But before getting into the hypotheticals, executive producer Jed Whedon revealed that there will indeed be some crossover between the upcoming Phase Three film and their ABC superhero drama. After all, they do inhabit the same world:
“It will definitely have a ripple effect. It is one world, so if there is a giant event, it will definitely have a ripple effect on our world.”
Whedon wouldn’t go into more details, but it’s not really hard to believe. The world governments and their stance on superhero activity has been featured on the show many times before. We’ve even seen that exact issue come up on last week’s episode, except they specifically targeted Inhumans. It’s only a matter of time until the Sokovia Accords pop up on Director Coulson’s desk and his has to deal with them.
How do you think ‘Captain America: Civil War’ will affect ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’? Do you think that those effects will be felt on other shows like ‘Most Wanted’, ‘Luke Cage’, or ‘Damage Control’ as well? Share your thoughts and theories in the comments below.
