Will Someone Die Tonight On AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.?
Jeph Loeb drops some hints about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., particularly tonight's episode which he describes as a tearjerker and devastating. With a "killer on the loose" in FZZT, does someone on Agent Coulson's (Clark Gregg) team take a dirt nap?
Marvel head of television Jeph Loeb spoke with Aint It Cool News about all things Marvel TV. Early in the interview, Loeb stated that tonight's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the best yet and hints that the show may be adopting a more serious tone. Said Loeb, "The most important thing is that the shows keep getting better and that our actors are really finding their roles. I think that when people see episode six, and by all estimations it’s the best one yet. It’s an extremely tense, frightening episode and even though some of us fans are grown men....you might get a little moist around the eyes."
While Loeb declined to answer what the rest of the season has in store for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. viewers, he does give a hint that something tragic and significant will occur on tonight's episode. "I can tell you that, at least with episode 6, there is a mysterious killer out there and no one is safe. That’s as far as I can take it but it is rather devastating if you are invested in the show."
Loeb continued, "There are some very exciting folk from the Marvel Universe proper coming in. I think folk out there already know that Agent Blake from the ‘Item 47’ short is coming in and that will be followed up by us making a visit to a SHIELD facility where there will be a few familiar faces and that Agent Sitwell will be coming in."
There's more from Loeb over at AICN, including brief discussion about AKA Jessica Jones, Guillermo del Toro's Hulk tv show (it's dead) and how long before we see the four other Marvel tv shows in development. It's all rather vague-ish, in-direct talk though so don't expect any concrete responses from Loeb. Click the link above to read the full transcript.
