Posted On April 14, 2018
Flickering Myth’s Tai Freligh was at WonderCon 2018 and spoke to Jeph Loeb, Executive Vice-President and Head of Television for Marvel. We asked him a question about whether or not there would be any references to Avengers: Infinity War in season 5 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Loeb wouldn’t confirm to us, but he also didn’t deny that there might be something there, saying, “We’re not done with that one. So far you’ve seen I think up to episode 14. So there’s still a long way to get to 22.”
