Ok, I know some people are disappointed with Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D., I can see compared to the films it is a bit of a let down. But if you pull it away from the films it has a great base, it’s just missing one big thing. Comic book heroes and villains. If you compare this to any other mystery TV series out there it’s not bad. But the fact that MARVEL is in the title implies that we are going to see some Marvel characters.
I believe they are coming. The studio is trying to get as many films out there as possible. If they introduce a character into the TV show, it might make it hard to develop to the big screen. BUT it does provide a place to test out those characters with fans. Bring in a big actor, try a character, see what people think and then take them to the big screen. The show is running alongside the films, hence the title of this post. This week ABC revealed that a forthcoming episode will cross over with Thor: The Dark World. The episode (due to air on my birthday, 19 November – thanks ABC!) will cover the aftermath of the events that happened in the film.
Like with Avengers, a lot happened that the people in London (or the case of Avengers, New York) and the rest of the world clearly would have spotted. So, with S.H.E.I.L.D. being the people on the ground that need to pick up the pieces, clearly the show had to cover this.
So for me, the show is getting better. But all I ask of Joss Whedon and his team is to remember that the point of this team was to focus on what other super-powered people might be out there, following the unveiling of the Avengers group to the public. So please remember that and reveal some more of Marvel’s characters. I really want this show to stay on TV and not be another Firefly.
