Jed Whedon Says Agents Of SHIELD And Inhumans Crossover Is Not Planned


Jed Whedon has some disappointing news for those who want SHIELD’s finest and the Royal Family to meet.

So far, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD has been the only part of the MCU to showcase Inhumans. This will all change when Inhumans comes this fall. Because of the connection between the two shows, most believe that the characters could link up. Unfortunately, this may not be the case.

While speaking with media outlets like Digital Spy, Agents of SHIELD showrunner and executive producer, Jed Whedon explained that both shows would remain separate for a while, and a crossover is not planned right now:

"“Without being able to say anything really about that show, it will have its own world, just as we tried to start our own world. Whether or not there’s a crossover, we will see.”"

This is a little bit surprising, but understandable. He also stated that both series should be able to stand on their own even if they are both set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:

"“Everything is connected, and that’s fun to play with. But, the point of our show is to be our show, and we want our fans to be rewarded for watching it without having to watch everything else.”"

He does make a good point. Despite this, the Agents of SHIELD showrunner also mentioned that viewers should still be rewarded for their investment in both shows, and that they can enjoy seeing certain elements connect them:

"“But, we also want there to be a bigger reward for people who watch all of them, so that they’ll start to see that there’s lines connecting it. It’s more fun for people who are playing the whole game, but if you don’t, you’ll still have a great rollercoaster ride.”"

So, it looks like the two shows definitely won’t be linking up anytime soon, but it also sounds like it’s still not impossible for them to connect at some point.

Agents of SHIELD airs on Tuesdays on ABC, while Inhumans  will arrive on September 26, 2017 following a two-week run in IMAX theaters starting September 1, 2017.
