“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” is getting the crossover treatment again in one of its upcoming “Uprising” episodes. To tie into the release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” at least one episode of the ABC series will be related to the plot of the film.
“If anyone sees a trailer for ‘Captain America,’ you’ll notice that SHIELD is a huge part of what is happening in the movie, just by all the talk of SHIELD and all the SHIELD logos everywhere, so definitely there’s a crossover of things happening,” series star Chloe Bennet tells Zap2it. “I can’t tell you how much, but I can tell you that it is insane.”
She continues, “It will heavily affect our characters, I think. Everyone, definitely go see ‘Captain America 2’ and then you’re going to definitely want to watch our show before and after.”
Beyond the big “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” crossover, fans are getting treated to an episode centered on Jaimie Alexander’s “Thor” character, Lady Sif, as well as more appearances by Bill Paxton’s Agent John Garrett.
“Jaimie Alexander is so sweet and lovely and she is so talented and beautiful, so it was great having her on set. Bill Paxton is the best human live, obviously. He is just so much fun,” Bennet says of the guest stars. “Sometimes we get nervous because we’re such a tight-knit group of friends, just ourselves, so when people come on we get nervous. But when they’re awesome, it’s so great.”
With eight episodes left in Season 1, expect some more familiar faces to pop up as well. Bennet says at least one actor who’s going to be on the show had her go full fangirl.
“The person walked into the trailer and I [screamed] and I started freaking out and I jumped on the person, and I didn’t know them and then I was like, ‘I saw you driving once,’ and then that person got a little weirded out. The person is awesome, but I cannot tell you who it is,” she says. “Our fans particularly will like a certain guest star that is coming up soon.”
“Agents of SHIELD” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
