Speaking to TV Fanatic, Marvel Phase 2 grand marshall and continuity commissar Joss Whedon teased the connection between his new TV show, ABC’s Agents Of SHIELD and the wider Marvel movies.

“Everything has to push ‘character’ forward, including action,” explained Whedon. “We don’t want ‘spectacle’ characters, we want some spectacle that addresses character. We always want the two to mix.

“We’re absolutely on top of all the movies. We never contradict, replicate – we will be flowing in between them, maybe occasionally we’ll throw something in that foreshadows [or] echoes but we’re very much beholden to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
