Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America: Civil War Tie-Ins--Are there Spoilers?

 So I just finished watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Captain America: Civil War tie-in episode and, as promised, here is my verdict on whether or not you need to worry about spoilers.

Answer:  you really don’t need to worry about it.

There’s a quick news report at the beginning of the episode revealing that Captain America and Iron Man had a “falling out” over the Sokovia Accords, and General Talbot tells Coulson that the Accords are the “law of the land,” having been ratified by 117 nations.  Those are the biggest connections between the episode and the movie, and the only thing in there that isn’t in the trailers is the fact that 117 countries ratified the Accords.

So there aren’t any spoilers involved in this episode—certainly not on the level of Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

Having said that, let’s pad my word count by talking about the Civil War tie-in with the TV shows!

I know, you don’t think there was anything there, but that’s not entirely true.  If you know what you are looking for, there is one line fairly early in the movie to the effect that since Iron Man, there are more superheroes.  Now, that line can certainly be taken as nothing more than an acknowledgment of the dozen heroes in the movie—and to a casual moviegoer it absolutely will be.  But for those of us who have been following all facets of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that line carries a little more weight as a reference to the even greater number of heroes and enhanced individuals appearing on the Netflix shows, on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and as a result of the spread of Terrigen.

And when you think about it, a single line is exactly what we needed.  It’s small enough to not confuse casual moviegoers.  It acknowledges (in a broad sense) the events of the larger MCU.  And it shows that even with the time discrepancies between the TV schedule and the movie schedule, there is a way for the two to coexist.

So in other words, I am quite satisfied with the tie-in between Captain America: Civil War and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  And it works so well that all you really need to have done is watch a Civil War trailer and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t spoiling anything!


  1. There are more potential tie-ins than that. Vision has a similar style as Mr. Jarvis, which makes sense, and it's possible the stuff Winter Soldier stole early on is related to the TAHITI Project (or otherwise derived from Kree blood, at any rate).

  2. Free movies on 365 movies watch now. In essence, GOLIATH was mentioned in Iron Man 2. In one segment, Tony Stark asked JARVIS to give him information on three secret projects of S.H.I.E.L.D. Their names are: PEGASUS, EXODUS and GOLIATH. Most contemporary audiences remember Laurence Fishburne through her role as Morpheus in the three Matrix films. While inviting Fishburne to join the MCU, Marvel also wanted to be able to add a few reminiscent of this monument.

    In one scene in the movie, the space behind Bill Foster's character is a blackboard with only the math equation. If the eyes, the viewer can see the words "Matrix" appear on the board. Although the antagonist of Ant-Man and The Wasp, the Ghost is not the only counterweight of the superhero. The film also has the smuggling magnate Sonny Burch, who wants to possess the Pym technology for personal use.
