They penned Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, so it makes sense that they’re being brought back to help shape the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Joss Whedon’s departure after Avengers: Age of Ultron. Official confirmation hasn’t landed yet, but is expected to soon.
It makes sense that Markus and McFeely are being kept around for Avengers: Infinity War, especially as Civil War will more than likely play a major role in setting the stage for Phase 3 as Cap and Iron Man go to war.
In other Marvel news, it has also been revealed that they’re moving ahead with an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff. There’s no word on who or what it will focus on, but stars from the show are expected to make the leap to what sounds like a companion series which will bridge the gap between the first and second halves of each season like Agent Carter did earlier this year. There’s still no word on a renewal for that just yet.
Logical choices for the series to focus on are Deathlok, the Inhumans or Mockingbird. Fans are desperate for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to feature more superpowered characters, so hopefully this spinoff will deliver on that.
