MCU has apparently distanced itself from Agents for SHIELD and other Marvel shows that were not under the Marvel Studios banner, but that did not stop comic book star Clark Gregg, who played Agent Coulson in some of the MCU movies and Agents for SHIELD, from still firmly believing that the show is truly the Marvel cannon.
While on Marvel Movie Minute podcast Gregg started raising WandaVision and its apparent retcon of Agents for SHIELDS own story. Gregg said, “I’ve seen places where people felt that SHIELD or something had been decanonized by things that happened in WandaVision in ways I could not even follow, and I’m pretty good at this.” In Gregg’s view, none of this has diminished SHIELD’s place in the Marvel cannon. Here’s more of what he had to say, especially regarding Kevin Feige, who acknowledged how much fans love the show:
“I read this comment the other day where someone said, did this diminish Agents of SHIELD? and he[Feige] said, ‘You know, I think you’re really underestimating how powerful and passionate the fans of that show and Netflix shows are and were,’ and I would never underestimate it or them. “
Although I love the Netflix Marvel shows, I’ve always been a little upset that there was such an effort to distance myself Agents for SHIELD from the larger MCU. When the series began, that was not the case and they tried to tie the show as much as possible. I think when the show became more of a fan favorite and less of a rating juggernaut, the decision was made not to connect SHIELD to the movies just as much. For the show’s errand, I think the series got a lot better as it did not have to worry about its MCU connections, but Coulson in particular is certainly the MCU cannon, as his character actually appeared in the movies, so it alone provides a solid connection.
Fans will continue to debate its true place in the MCU. The show ignored the life – changing events in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame but as mentioned earlier, the first few seasons had connections to the films that could not be ignored. Marvel Studios made this even more confusing via WandaVision when the series introduced Darkhold, but in a very different way than Agents for SHIELD did in season four. So on Loki, the series referred to Coulson’s death but failed to mention his resurrection. Maybe Marvel is now some kind of your own adventure genre.
Do you think Agents for SHIELD is Marvel canon?
