Does new cast addition indicate Avengers: Infinity War is joining with Agents of SHIELD?

July 8th, 2017 by Marc Comments

We all know that, long before the Agents of SHIELD TV series, Agent Phil Coulson was a big part of the MCU before his real/not real death in the first Avengers movie.

Well, we also know that since then, while Coulson and the SHIELD team have been having loads of adventures – including meeting Ghost Rider – SHIELD has pretty much stopped existing in the MCU movies given the events of Captain America: Winter Soldier.

However, Infinity War could be the one to turn that all around.

It appears that Randall Park (Fresh Off The Boat) will play Jimmy Woo in the next Avengers. Woo was the boss at SHIELD long before Phil Coulson in the original comic stories but recently he’s been a member of Agents of ATLAS (read about them here).

While his role in the movie isn’t clear, we’re hoping that the events of Infinity War will be big enough to tie the whole MCU together.

What say you all?


Infinity War is set for July 6th, 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
