While it should come as no surprise Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature some sort of tie in with May’s upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. How exactly the series will tie into the upcoming and highly anticipated film is unknown but it won’t be the first time the series was effected by events in the Marvel films, after all the second half of last season was heavily influenced by Captain America: The Winter Soldier though show runner Jed Whedon claims that the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron won’t have quite as a dramatic effect on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Captain America: The Winter Soldier did.
Still since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set in the ever expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe it’s only natural and expected that major events from the various Marvel films would have an impact on the narrative of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Hopefully they find a fun way to connect the new Avengers film to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
