It’s been fairly obvious where Marvel is taking Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., especially in the wake of that midseason cliffhanger, but now they’re just trolling us with the Inhumans hints.
Spoilers ahead for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season two!
Considering Marvel already has an Inhumans film scheduled a few years down the line, it makes sense they’d start planting seeds early. What we didn’t expect? That the mid-rated ABC series would lead the charge to get the world ready for Black Bolt and the rest of the royal family. But after we got to see some Terrigen Mists in action during the shocking midseason finale, it now seems they’re diving head-first into the basics of the Inhumans mythology.
The teaser clip focuses on Skye, aka Daisy Johnson/Quake, who has just had her powers unlocked and now has her comic-based powers of causing earthquakes. Judging by the fact that she’s under observation in a holding cell here, talking about how things are starting to seem “Inhuman,” it seems the mythology surrounding Skye’s transformation will play a major part in the back half of the season.
Establishing the framework for Inhumans in S.H.I.E.L.D. is an ambitious move for Marvel, though you have to worry the show’s low viewership could still leave general audiences confused about the Inhumans. It’s a delicate balance, for sure. Check out the teaser below and let us know what you think:
