Get ready for the new daily show

Could Fantastic Four or something bigger be in TV’s Agents of SHIELD’s future?

Could TV’s Agents of SHIELD be used to introduce the MCU’s Fantastic Four?

We’d say naw, but after Ghost Rider being introduced in the show and The Punisher, Daredevil and the rest all appearing on TV rather than on the MCU’s big screen outings, we’d have to say nothing would surprise us.

But where is this coming from? Well…

Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel TV, took part in a Reddit AMA (because of Cloak and Dagger’s TV appearance) but in the AMA – no surprise – the fans went beyond Cloak and Dagger and into he bigger MCU.

“Am I crazy, or are you guys producing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to be the epic prologue to something more? Can you elaborate or hint towards the future of the show now that it’s been renewed for Season 6,” asked one fan.

Then Loeb’s answer was decided cryptic but certainly interesting: “You’re not crazy. But that’s all I can say!”

Honestly, we’re going to say that it being Fantastic Four is a bit of a stretch – especially given that, at the minute, Fantastic Four is still Fox’s and with Comcast making life difficult for Disney (here) nothing is concrete yet, so we reckon Reed Richards and his crew appearing on SHIELD is very unlikely.

That said, the show would do well to do something to tie it back into the MCU, which it has been far removed from for a few season now… we’d imagine it could be a tie into the events of Infinity War more than the appearance of new characters.

But never say never…


Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will return in summer o2019.

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….
