Ever since the previous season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. didn’t explain how the Agents dealt with Thanos and the events of Avengers: Infinity War, some have used that omission as another excuse to try to claim that the series isn’t part of the MCU. Well now one of the people involved with the show has hinted that the final season will address the events of the last two Avengers movies.
In a Tweet from March, VFX supervisor Mark Kolpack says to wait for season 7 to see about the Snap:
Well. You’ll have to wait for season 7. https://t.co/u3WmkRfLPX— Mark Kolpack (@MarkKolpack) March 27, 2020
There has been a plot leak circulating from 4Chan for a while that says the season will address that. The leak claims the season is broken up into mini-arcs; beginning with the first episode where they’re in the 30s and have to save Hydra in order to save S.H.I.E.L.D..
The leak goes on to hint that the Agents are in a timeline where Thanos at one point vanished along with his army (possibly the 2014 one from Endgame) and the Confederacy has been using his name to intimidate people; as we saw when Thanos was mentioned. It goes on to say when the Agents return to the normal MCU timeline, it’s during the five years of the Snap.
Some of the promo footage and art have backed up things that leak claimed, and now this comment from the VFX supervisor hints that we’ll see the Snap addressed. So it’s possible it’s true, and if so that’s a pretty good explanation as to why the show wasn’t affected by Infinity War.
