Surprising no one, EW is reporting that a future episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.EL.D.” will tie into Marvel Studios’ next big release, Avengers: Age of Ultron. The film doesn’t debut in theaters until May 1, 2015, but that lines up perfectly with what will be the remaining episodes of the series’ sophomore season.
“You should expect something,” executive producer Jed Whedon tells the outlet. “The Avengers is the big tent that all the franchises play under. Obviously, we’re included in that.”
The series has previously tied in to both Thor: The Dark World, albeit for one episode, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which rocked the entire series to its core.
“I don’t think any movie has the potential to impact us in the way that Captain America 2 did,” executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen says, “but there will be connections.”
