Though it’s always been suspected, given how closely Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s now been confirmed that there will be an Age of Ultron link.
This isn’t the first time Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been woven into the MCU. After Captain America: The Winter Soldier, S.H.I.E.L.D. picked up the thread that Hydra had infiltrated its ranks and after Thor: The Dark World the agents were tasked with the cleanup operation.
Entertainment Weekly’s exclusive with Jed Whedon revealed that “You should expect something,”. “The Avengers is the big tent that all the franchises play under. Obviously, we’re included in that.”
As exciting as it might be to Agents of SHIELD fans, you’ve been warned to not get too hyped. ““I don’t think any movie has the potential to impact us in the way that Captain America 2 did,” executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen said.
Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in UK cinemas on April the 24th.
