Tonight marks the return of Joss Whedon to television as the mind behind the brilliance of Marvel is debuting Marvel’s Agent of SHIELD tonight on ABC.
But while the return of Whedon is something fans have been waiting a long time for, the question in everyone’s mind is will this spinoff to the very successful The Avengers work? There’s a lot riding on the line with the premiere of Marvel’s Agent of SHIELD as if things work out, this could prove to be another area that Marvel has pioneered as a way of expanding a story told in theaters.
Everything that Marvel is doing was something The Matrix tried to do at the beginning of the 2000s where just seeing the movie in the theaters wasn’t enough to get the whole story. Marvel hasn’t gone as overboard as The Matrix did, but it’s clear that they seem to know what they’re doing in terms of making their product as popular and profitable as possible.
