‘Agent Carter’ Season Two Will Feature A ‘Dark’ Connection To ‘Doctor Strange’

Regardless of whether or not characters from the small screen make it to the big screen, when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe: It’s all connected. Sometimes these connections are minor and sometimes major. It seems that we will be seeing a bigger one of these connections when Agent Carter returns next week and brings along a “dark” tie to this year’s Doctor Strange.

While speaking with Comic Book Resources, showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters revealed that this season will feature a substance called “Darkforce”. Sound familiar? Well, the substance was first introduced to the MCU in season one episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The episode “The Only Light In The Darkness” featured the character Blackout who derived his power from “Darkforce”.

That’s what Isodyne is, and what you’ll learn is they were involved in the nuclear testing out in the desert when they were testing the, at the time they were calling it the atom bomb — and one of these tests didn’t go as expected. You’ll learn more about that in Season 2, but they stumble upon what people in the Marvel Universe will know as Darkforce, but because they’ve never seen it before they just name it Zero Matter. That’s our tie-in to the ‘Doctor Strange’ universe, and also to ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ because you’ve seen it in ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ as well.

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe set to explore the mystical side of things, it’s smart for them to begin touching on them in their small screen properties as well. What do you think about them touching on this in the upcoming season of Agent Carter? Do you think there’s a chance the events will be touched on in Doctor Strange when it hits theaters? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
