Marvel Cinematic Universe’s television counterpart has come a long way since its premiere.
CarterMatt reports that one of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s” biggest reveals involved Skye/Daisy Johnson’s discovery of her inhuman abilities.
However, although that revelation may have been a major turning point for the series, the website now reports that an upcoming episode may surpass it.
Entertainment Weekly quotes Clark Gregg (the actor who plays Phil Coulson and director of S.H.I.E.L.D.) in saying:
“I would say that this mid-season finale has two shocking twists and both of them are bigger than anything that happened in last season’s mid-season finale.”
With this note, it may be safe to say that the upcoming mid-season finale of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be more explosive–and may be more heartbreaking than Tripp’s death–than season 2’s mid-season finale.
Also, with the “Captain America: Civil War” movie hitting theaters next year, Movie Pilot speculates that more could be in store for the series in terms of building up towards the “Civil War” movie.
The website narrows down SHIELD’s involvement in the “Civil War” story line in two aspects. Movie Pilot suggests the following theories:
The ATCU is the new governing body to control the Avengers
A “more legitimized SHIELD” will return to the MCU films, as a system of accountability for the Avengers!
However, these two theories are not the only ones that the website is focused on. According to Movie Pilot, it may be possible that the Avengers will finally know that Coulson is alive and the planet to which Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) was transported to will have a role in setting up other Marvel films.
Movie Pilot cites that the unknown planet could be an initial reference for “Captain Marvel”, “Thor: Ragnarok” or even as the Dark Dimension in “Doctor Strange”.
Nevertheless, whatever major reveal “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is building up to, the upcoming mid-season finale is confirmed to be an explosive one.
A new episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” will air on December 1, Tuesday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
