AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Showrunners Talk Series Villains
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen were asked about the show's villains specifically, and whether it would be one or the other type for the show's inaugural season. Hit the jump to check it out!
"There are gods and aliens," Jed Whedon said. "So we have a lot to play with. There's a spy aspect of the show and SHIELD is some of the most sci-fi in the Marvel universe because it's about gadgets. So we have a lot of different things to play with. It will be a mixture of both. We will be focusing on having every story having a beginning, middle and end." Jed went on to say "some of it will be mythology and some of it will standalone. And our character runs will continue through all of that." Maurissa Tancharoen added that "Marvel is a very vast and diverse universe." Well she is very correct about that! What villains do you want to see appear on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?"
