Last week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. shook up the dynamic quite a bit, leaving some fans wondering if the show might quickly become the Secret Warriors instead. So, how do the new Inhuman heroes fit into the mix?
Showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen chatted with TV Line about the Season 3 storyline that has brought the Inhumans to the forefront as the series lays groundwork for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and creates a super-powered team in a show that built its reputation on being less than super-powered.
Though it may seem like they’re trying to “juggle” two separate teams, Tanchareon said the dynamic they’re trying to nail down is having the Inhuman warriors become “an extension of the team” that’s already in place, serving as a “new dynamic within.” She noted the Secret Warriors arc also follows the growth of Daisy as she embraces a leadership role and the writers dig into “asserting this new arc” for the face of the Inhumans (at least at this point).
Along with telling the story of the Inhumans, Whedon noted they’ll also be using that as a foil for how it affects the rest of the team:
“[It’s] more about trying to reflect Daisy’s pursuit of this idea, her desire to bring people like her together. And that does create complications, as you see [in the winter premiere] — Hunter saying, ‘Bloody powers…. How can we compete?’ And everybody who’s human in the field [last week] gets kidnapped because they can’t compete. So it’s definitely creating a dynamic within the team.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesday nights on ABC.
What do you think of the new-look S.H.I.E.L.D. dynamic?
