We were all blown away when ‘Cloak and Dagger‘ officially tied itself to the Netflix Marvel shows with appearances by Detective O’Reilly who was mentioned to Misty Knight in the latest season of ‘Luke Cage.’ If you thought that was a fun little connection, showrunner Joe Pokaski has shared that there is more to come. Specifically, we’ll see ties to ABC’s Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ and ‘Agent Carter’ coming in the near future.
The easy guess is that it will be related to Roxxon or the substance which gave us these new heroes as to how similar it was to Zero Matter. Both the conglomerate and the material were featured in both ABC shows so this seems the logical choice for how to tie them together.
According to Pokaski:
“Yes, it’s always our goal to connect instead of negate, if that makes sense. The thing I can tell you is definitely watch all of the Agents of SHIELD and all of the Agent Carter episodes that dealt with Roxxon as well. Whenever possible, we want to connect. I think there’s certain things that were done in Carter and SHIELD that I don’t think we’re going to be necessarily duplicating, but if what you are sniffing around is the source similar, then I can say the source is of the same source originally.”
It isn’t clear if we’ll see any direct name drops thrown about, but with the description of what Roxxon is looking for, it wouldn’t be surprising if we hear Zero Matter being mentioned at the very least.
Are you enjoying the connections that ‘Cloak and Dagger’ have made so far to the rest of Marvel’s cinematic and televised universe? Do you think that we’ll see an increase in references in the final episodes of this season and more in the next? Share your thoughts below, True Believers!
