While the concluding image of the season four finale pretty gave away that at least the beginning of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would feature space, a brand new poster fully confirms it. Released exclusively by Entertainment Weekly, the new poster shows part of a window with stars and empty space stretching out as far as the eye can see with the giant S.H.I.E.L.D. symbol emblazoned on the metal wall beside the window.
During that season four finale only Coulson was shown waking up in a room and looking out into space, after him and his entire team were captured by some msytery individuals during a meal, but it’s likely that everyone from the cast will appear there or be connected in some way.
Most are assuming the mystery folks and space are tied to the comic book group SWORD, he Sentient World Observation and Response Department, which is a sibling agency to S.H.I.E.L.D. in the comics and does the same job as them except protects space and looks out for alien threats.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. currently has no release date because of the about to begin Marvel’s Inhumans series, but is expected to start sometime this winter as the poster notes.
