Hoe zijn Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. en Civil War verbonden?Sinds 2013 is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. te zien op ABC en bevat verschillende connecties tussen de Marvel Cinematic Universe. Zo was Samuel L. Jackson aan het begin van het eerste seizoen te zien als Nick Fury. Daarnaast liep het laatste deel gelijktijdig aan de gebeurtenissen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Zo zagen we dat S.H.I.E.L.D. zelf uiteen viel. Tevens zagen we Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif uit Thor: The Dark World in het tweede seizoen. Nu dat Captain America: Civil War te zien is in de bioscopen, vragen fans zich af hoe dit zich verhoudt tot de serie. Vandaag hebben we meer details over hoe het plot de serie zal beïnvloeden.

In Captain America: Civil War gaat het over de Sokovia Accords, welke gemaakt zijn naar aanleiding van de gebeurtenissen in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hoofdrolspeler Clark Gregg liet weten dat de Sokovia Accords ook in de serie voorbij zullen komen:

“The Sokovia Accords have their own specific purpose within Civil War having to do with the powered people that we’ve met in The Avengers. It’s representative of how our show functions within the Marvel Universe, in some ways, in that it’s all connected. That ripples through our show because suddenly all these people who are Inhumans in our corner of the universe, they’re all subjected to the Sokovia Accords. That dilemma rises up in our show about the people who feel Inhumans should be registered and those who feel that’s a first step to them being sequestered, imprisoned, exterminated.”

Op 17 mei zal ABC een twee uur durende seizoensfinale uitzenden van het derde seizoen. Actrice Elizabeth Henstridge onthulde dat geen enkel lid van het S.H.I.E.L.D. team compleet één kant heeft gekozen:

“Marvel is so good at taking really huge political and philosophical issues and putting them through a prism and making them something that you can have an opinion on, but there’s distance and you can argue both sides,. The characters fall on different sides. It’s not so black and white. There’s no one character in the show that’s full-force for one side or the other. It’s a really cool link philosophically that we’re both questioning the same morals or politics. Can two different beings, in a way, that share so much but then are so different, can you live side-by-side together peacefully? We’ve been to that place where we have documented, and it didn’t work. It’s strange that we’re having the argument again, but that’s what humans do: You don’t notice that history is repeating itself.”

Uitvoerend producent Jeph Loeb voegde toe:

“Marvel always works best when it’s commenting on the real world. It’s safe to say it wouldn’t be hard to find a recent time where man’s tolerance toward man or woman is being stretched pretty thin, whether it’s because of race, gender, or religion. We can’t quite figure out how to get along. The Civil War is happening around us. In our world, that translates as whether or not you have powers. For a lot of people, that’s very scary when someone is different.”

Nu de Sokovia Accords in de serie voorbijkomen, vragen veel mensen zich af wie voor team Captain America of Iron Man is. Elizabeth Henstridge liet het volgende weten over haar personage:

“She started off being scared of people with powers, and almost had a snobbish attitude toward them, and an arrogance of her superiority in terms of intelligence and how maybe people with powers were shortcutting to a solution when she felt she’d earned the right to be able to solve a problem. But she has definitely warmed to the idea. But I do still think she’s on the side of Iron Man and relying on scientific qualities, which include documenting, writing everything down, and making sure everything is nice and neat in its little box.”

Actrice Ming-Na Wen’s personage Melinda May kan niet goed kiezen:

“May is very torn, because on the one hand, she understands the need to have them as allies as opposed to having them as the enemy, especially with Hive [Brett Dalton] in the mix right now and him being able to control the Inhumans. But there lies the dilemma, because as much as we want to believe and trust the Inhumans, they are the unstable, unknown element. For her, she wishes things were back to the old ways, where it was very clear cut that S.H.I.E.L.D. was there to help and to protect the citizens.”

En waar staat Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson?:

“He does end up being Team Cap. In some ways, I think Coulson would’ve imagined he would be enforcing whatever the latest iteration of the World Council would want in terms of this stuff, but his relationship with Daisy and other Inhumans pulls him very much against that particular side of it. He’s very much Team Cap.”

Na de gebeurtenissen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier werd S.H.I.E.L.D. ontmanteld, maar het lijkt er op dat de serie een richting opgaat waarbij de organisatie weer zichtbaar wordt. Uitvoerend producent Jed Whedon sprak over de opties:

“We’re dipping our toe into the idea of S.H.I.E.L.D. being a legitimate organization again. But with that would come any rules and regulations that come with government oversight. It’s not a coincidence that while we’re starting to approach that as an idea on the show, it’s becoming more complicated for that to be a reality that we would live in.”
