With the new Avengers film sequel coming out in the US this week, the television series that was spawned from the first movie is reminding people that not only do they both take place in the same universe, they are connected. How much so? That won’t fully be realized until Avengers hits the big screen later this week.
In this clip from the upcoming episode Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., some of the ties between the television series and the Avengers movie are hinted at:
When the “connection” of MAoS and Captain America: The Winter Soldier happened, it, in my opinion, took the show to a whole new level. I’m excited to see if that type of symmetry works for this connection.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 9pm EST on the ABC network.
Avengers: age of Ultron comes to theaters in the US on May 1st.
Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Chris Evans as Captain America. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
