More Impactful Cameos On The Way For AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.?
"Stay tuned, there's a plan," says Marvel Television's Jeph Loeb on more familiar Marvel characters appearing on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a similar capacity to the many DC Comics character appearances on Arrow.
Jeph Loeb, Marvel Television's answer to Marvel Studio's Kevin Feige, spoke to the Huffington Post about current plans on the tv front. When asked specifically by the interviewer about whether Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would adapt the Arrow approach and start "minling] the Marvel Universe for character appearances", Loeb simply tease, "Stay tuned, there's a plan."
I highlight this answer because when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was first introduced, the prevailing school of thought from the showrunners was that it would be predominantly about the characters being introduced on the show. The "ordinary" people caught up in the growing wave of superheroics sweeping the globe. To that end, when Loeb, Tancharoen and [Jed] Whedon were asked about cameos they stated there would be a few,small appearances but nothing too drastic. Now, it's "Stay tuned, there's a plan." Perhaps, there's been a shift in policy and we'll start seeing S.H.I.E.L.D.'s roster being filled out with some more familiar names? We previously learned that two new recurring agents are set to join the show. And there was an earlier rumor that Taskmaster would appear on the show. One thing is sure, changes have to be made when the mid-season finale brings in the lowest ratings number thus far.
Loeb declined to comment on Marvel's Netflix deal concerning Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Daredevil. There's more from the interview at the source, including intel on Marvel's Animation endeavors.
