Agents of SHIELD - Season 4 - To Feature Loose Crossover with Doctor Strange



Since its debut, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has featured some sort of tie-in to the films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe – whether it was Hydra’s infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D. in Captain America: The Winter Soldier or S.H.I.E.L.D.’s helicarrier assist in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

That tradition will continue as ABC’s super series heads into its fourth season just ahead of the debut of Doctor Strange – though the tie-in won’t be as explicit. “Our ties are at times very direct and at times are more thematic,” EP Jed Whedon tells EW. “The tie this year will feel more of a reflection of the movie, less an interweaving plot. As that movie hits the world, it comes at the right time in our show, and you will see some of those same ideas being explored.”

“The same questions that our team is exploring leading up to the premiere of Doctor Strange, perhaps some of those concepts will be reflected in the movie and then carried through,” EP Maurissa Tancharoen says. Adds Whedon: “Hopefully some of the questions that we’re asking will be answered by it and then pose some new themes and ideas for us to explore.”

As Marvel moves into the realm of the unexplained with Doctor Strange, so too does the show with the introduction of Ghost Rider (Gabriel Luna) – more scoop on that here – and the concept of artificial intelligence. “Doctor Strange will introduce some new ideas, but we’re starting to lay the first brick in the yellow brick road to that,” Whedon says. “We want to slowly play with the morality of building these things, whether or not we even should and the scientific questions that come along with it. [That’s] the first step that we explore before we inevitably get into other things.”

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
