AGENT CARTER Season 2 Will Tie-In To DOCTOR STRANGE

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D directly tied into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on several occasions, and it looks like the upcoming return of Agent Carter is set to do the same. According to showrunner Michele Fazekas, season 2 will introduce Doctor Strange's Darkforce...


Though Agent Carter has thus far stayed pretty grounded in reality for the most part, the second season of the ABC TV series is set to take things into more fantastical, even supernatural, territory. The show will feature the extra-dimensional negative energy known as Darkforce in the Marvel comics, which is what several characters tap into to derive their powers from. This is one of the things Peggy (Hayley Atwell) comes to LA to investigate, but for the purposes of the period-set adventure it'll be referred to by the more scientific name of Isodyne.

Here's what showrunner Michele Fazekas had to say about it during an interview with CBR:


"That's what Isodyne is, and what you'll learn is they were involved in the nuclear testing out in the desert when they were testing the, at the time they were calling it the atom bomb -- and one of these tests didn't go as expected. You'll learn more about that in Season 2, but they stumble upon what people in the Marvel Universe will know as Darkforce, but because they've never seen it before they just name it Zero Matter. That's our tie-in to the 'Doctor Strange' universe, and also to 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' because you've seen it in 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' as well."


In AOS the villainous Blackout was powered by Darkforce much like he is in the comics - but Stephen Strange actually doesn't use it, so unless Marvel decides to alter things a little and use that as the basis for his powers in the movie, perhaps we can assume Fazekas is referring to the good Doctor's villains?

Hopefully more will be revealed when Agent Carter returns for its two-hour premiere on Tuesday, January 19, at 9 pm ET/PT on ABC.
