‘Agents of SHIELD’ season 4: Exec on added ‘freedom’ with stories

Agents of SHIELD -

When Marvel’s “Agents of SHIELD” first introduced Inhumans into its story over a season ago, it did so at a time when the characters had a mysterious long-term presence within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The characters were slated to have their own movie sometime far in the future, so we wondered if that was forcing the writers to put certain restrictions on what they could or could not discuss on the show.

Have some of those restrictions been lifted somewhat? It certainly seems that way, given that the status of the movie is now a little more unclear. Also, executive producer Jed Whedon recently said the following to SpoilerTV on the subject:

“We do have a little more freedom … We’ve told a couple of seasons of stories but now we do have some more freedom. So when we return to focusing on Inhumans, we’ll be able to do a little bit more.”

Our hope here in general is that some of these stories will introduce a few more prominent Inhuman characters, or at least allude more to them being out there. At this point in the show’s run, it really needs to do a few more things in order to draw in viewers. Its ratings are not spectacular, and its status beyond the upcoming fourth season is unclear.

As for the movie side of things for Marvel, they’re clearly doing just fine given that they just confirmed Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and have many other movies in the works, including potentially some that have not even been announced publicly just yet.
