As we’ve gotten our first taste of what “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will be like in the first trailer, the viral marketing for the new series is really starting to take off. Bleeding Cool first spotted a blog for a group known as “The Rising Tide,” which ties into the show. It appears this hacker/”conspiracy” group are doing their best to publish the truth about S.H.I.E.L.D. to the world, including their involvement with Iron Man and The Hulk. They’ve posted clips from previous Marvel films with captions about their ties to the espionage organization. Check out the blog by clicking here and take a peek at the videos below.
