The cast and crew of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hit the stage at WonderCon in Anaheim, California, this weekend to answer (and not answer) some questions including how the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War will impact the ABC series.
Actors from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Jeff Ward, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, Henry Simmons, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Ming Na Wen, and Chloe Bennet joined executive producer Jeff Bell, and showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen along with moderator and Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb to talk about the fifth season of the show.
Fans got plenty of time to ask questions during the panel leading to perhaps one question that's on all of our minds: how will the upcoming Infinity War film (which seems to include almost everyone from the Marvel Cinematic Universe) impact Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
Of course, the team couldn't give too much info as any answer would potentially also spoil some of what happens in the film. But according to Deadline, Whedon did have a "sort of" answer:
“The movies blaze a path. When Doctor Strange came out it introduced us to magic which gave us Ghost Rider; when [Guardians of the Galaxy] came out, we were introduced to space. We are waiting for that movie to come out so it can open a new playground for us.”
Ok, so it's not any new information per say but just another puzzle piece in the world of Marvel. Considering how each of the films impact each other but also impact the world of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. makes it all seem more complex and impressive. Guess we'll have to wait until Infinity War to fully understand this statement. But that's not news.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Fridays at 9pm on ABC. Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters April 27.
