Will the S.H.I.E.L.D. series capitalize on a cross-platform synergy, to the delight of fans? “What we’re trying to do is open the door for that — but that’s not the door to the main room,” Whedon stresses. “The big house is that S.H.I.E.L.D. has to work on its own. It can’t be an Easter egg farm. It’s got to be a show with characters you care about week to week, that if you’ve never seen a Marvel movie you can turn into.”
I like this little bit of information about the show. To me, it kinda confirmed what I hoped this show would be. After it gets its legs under it and is hopefully successful, they may look to use the show as a way to introduce new characters for their own spinoffs or inclusion in any of the films. Very excited to see this show.
