Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the latest addition to the Marvel cinematic universe, except it takes place on television. On Tuesday night the pilot of the show aired for the first time and was welcomed by millions of viewers, breaking records for ABC and TV across the board. The real question on most peoples mind before, during, and even after the shows airing is whether or not it will work out and be a good addition to the universe already built by Paramount and Disney. It really seemed as though fan reaction ranged from very mixed about it being a show to being upset(or just unaware) that they would be bringing back Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson to life. It was hard to come by a positive outlook on the idea as a whole, given that some of the trailers and TV spots seemed not only cheesy but horribly written and acted. Alas, there was a glimmer of hope that was Joss Wheadon who, now pretty much being the godfather of all things Avengers, directed and helped write the pilot. Was he enough to save the show from anything? Well, kind of.
Written by Tyler Lamb; Media by Zach Bonner. Marvel has really made a name for themselves outside of the comic book realm with their (mostly)tied together cinematic universe. It all started out with the amazing, and to this day one of the best comic book movies of all time, Iron Man back in 2008. Phase one was finally completed with The Avengers last May. This May, we are treated with the beginning of Marvels phase 2, which will end with Avengers 2 but is starting with Iron Man 3. Will Iron Man be able to carry his own film after the very successful Avengers? Can he come back from the bomb that was Iron Man 2? The short answer, not really.
