Also, calling the show Marvel's The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D not only gives it that Marvel Studios cachet but also ties the show to Marvel's The Avengers. Viewers who aren't CBM fans like us, those who haven't followed the development of the series, will be cued in to the tie between the show and the third biggest blockbuster of all time. Disney isn't taking the chance that the show will fail to attract the interest of prospective viewers simply because they aren't aware of its connection to the MCU.
