For fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as Joss Whedon diehards, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been a satisfying addition to the network TV lineup. It’s a particularly clever supplement to the MCU as well, weaving subtle allusions and seamless plot tie-ins from the big screen blockbusters while still existing at its core as a standalone venture. Based on where last season left off, the second season has few questions to answer: Who is Skye’s father? What’s up with The Cavalry? Will we ever be able to forgive Ward? (Okay, maybe more than a few questions.)
One of the strengths of the show is the chemistry between the cast, which—as I found out from the teasing, hugs, and bunny ears on the red carpet—stems from their close relationship off-screen. These people love not only their co-workers but the show itself. ”Somehow, Jeph [Loeb], Jed [Whedon], Maurissa [Tancharoen], Joss [Whedon], they manage to get people on the show—starting with me—who are fans,” said Clark Gregg, “who kind of grew up loving Marvel stuff, who love the movies, love this part of it.”
