Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Inhumans Not Crossing Over With ‘Civil War’

Agent of Shield

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been very closely tied to Marvel’s Television counterpart. It appears that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will not be tying into Captain America: Civil War. In the original comic book lore, the Inhumans existed when heroes chose sides between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers.

During a set visit to Civil War, HitFix interviewed Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. They explained that this film takes place on a more global scale and differs from the original comic books. McFeely explained:

“There will be a Stamford Incident but it’s not Stamford. We’ll have an incident that will force the governments of the world to go, ‘Wait a second. Let’s talk about the laundry list of things that we’re not happy about. Let’s finally do something about that.’ It’s more about oversight than unmasking or outing anyone.”

During the set visit it was also announced that the writers of Civil War hadn’t been keeping up with S.H.I.E.L.D. This latest season of S.H.I.E.L.D has been introducing many different Inhumans but it’s not likely that any of these characters would cross over into this major tent pole film.

It appears that both camps (television and cinematic) haven’t been communicating.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, March 8 at 9/8c on ABC with the first episode titled, “Bouncing Back.”

    I just want that by the time this new phase ends Coulson and Skye make an appearance in a movie. That is all that is needed, at least to show some respect for fans. If they bothered to take a character from the movies and make a tv show in that universe to draw an audience, i’m sure they can repay the same audience for their years of dedication by showing that those characters are relevant too

      LMAO, yeah, good luck with that. You’ll NEVER see these z-list folks in the movies (again).

      I love how folks are holding out hope for a promise that Marvel was never gonna be able to make good on.


    LMAO at this. Precisely what I’ve been saying for the past several months, but all the Marvel Zombies have been jumping down my throat about it.

    • Gabe323

      It’s all they had left and now it’s gone.

      • SAMURAI36

        What an awful shame. (/sarcasm)

  • Axxell

    Why would the Inhumans need to be in Civil War? They didn’t factor into the original story at all. I’d only be surprised if they didn’t cross over through the Inhumans or Infinity War film.

    • SAMURAI36

      Just like you were surprised, when Supergirl and Flash crossed over, even though you said they wouldn’t? Like, that kinda surprise?

      I’m calling it now: AoShit will in no way be involved in Infinity War (except perhaps, to clean up the Avengers’ messes, like they usually do).

      • Axxell

        LOL…you’re just mad because the DCCU has nothing to do with the TV universe AT ALL.

        • SAMURAI36

          Nope, not whatsoever. See, unlike Marvel, DC never lied to me. And yet, YOU lied, when you said Supergirl and Flash wouldn’t cross over.


          • Axxell

            Nope, but maybe you can find the quote where I said it wouldn’t happen…I won’t hold my breath, though…LOL!

            See, as someone else already pointed out to you (and you conveniently ignored), we don’t need Ghost Rider to show up together with Gambit to know that they exist in the same universe. If they bump into each other, it’ll be in an organic, natural way, if the story requires it. Same for the MCU. Marvel never lied, because they never promised all the movie characters would appear on TV and vice versa. That was only you and your unrealistic expectations you set artificially so you could say Marvel failed to meet them.
