Fitz and Simmons’ relationship on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is pretty rocky right now. The Framework has altered everyone’s reality and changed up the dynamics of the show and characters. Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons are stuck in this new reality and Fitz… well, Fitz is not the same guy, having been replaced with a decoy.
However, he did bring up marriage to Simmons, so does this mean wedding bells could be in the couple’s future when/if they get out of the Framework? Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jed Whedon is hopeful that it’s something that they would be both have in the future, since Fitz was still “expressing real emotion.”
“He was expressing real emotion,” EP Jed Whedon says. “It could happen. If they ever get back together, that’s something that could happen in their future.”
But it looks like the couple has a ways to go before they can get to that point. First, the must deal with Hydra and they certainly have to get through their current issues, but all hope has not been lost.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. currently airs on Tuesday nights at 10/9c on ABC.

10 Marvel Shows We’d Like to See Made
As the “golden age of television” continues, one genre that has been on the uptick has been superhero TV shows. The CW almost has every day on lock with many DC Comics-centric TV shows like Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, as well as shows like iZombie, and the upcoming Riverdale. Other networks such as AMC and Fox (among others) have Preacher and The Walking Dead, Gotham, and Lucifer, respectively.
Marvel has been diversifying their portfolio as well. When they first introduced Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., they only slightly-connected their television universe with their cinematic universe. While recent corporate changes in their business structure have distanced their properties from each other, they still maintain a continuity. Shows like Agent Carter as well as the many Netflix shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, the upcoming Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders) all have events connected to their big screen counterparts. Currently, Marvel has Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Inhumans (coming next year) on ABC along with Damage Control (TBD) while Cloak and Dagger (airing on Freeform next year), and Runaways (developed for Hulu) are in development.
With such a large assortment of comic books and comic book characters, Marvel has barely scratched the surface. Here are a few comic book characters that could definitely use their own show…
