Every Time Agents Of SHIELD Referenced The MCU

It may not be considered official canon by many viewers, but Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. references the Marvel Cinematic Universe on numerous occasions throughout its long run. Initially created to tie into the MCU movies, S.H.I.E.L.D. mentioned important characters and events from the films while also tying them into how they affect the storylines in the show.

The earlier seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. referenced the MCU heavily before delving more into original storylines that Coulson’s team could be involved with. Seasons one through three mentioned events like the Battle of New York and Project Insight before introducing characters that haven’t appeared in the MCU yet such as Deathlok and Ghost Rider. But given that Marvel has been able to bring in characters from their Netflix shows, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. characters could join the MCU as well in future phases.

Phil Coulson

After being killed by Loki in The Avengers, Phil Coulson is resurrected and forms his own team that investigates unclassified cases. Clark Gregg reprises his role for all seven seasons, but he also portrays alternate versions of the character in the form of Chronicoms and an antagonistic alien that resembles Coulson. His resurrection is a pivotal storyline in the first two seasons as he discovers the truth behind it and how it drives him crazy in season 2 when he begins making carvings into the wall. Coulson’s cellist girlfriend first mentioned in The Avengers also makes an appearance in a season 1 episode.

Maria Hill
Cobie Smulders returns as Maria Hill in season 1 to recruit Ward for Coulson’s team. She returns later in order to try to persuade him to stay loyal to S.H.I.E.L.D. after learning he was a member of HYDRA. She also makes a brief appearance in season 2 leading up to Avengers: Age of Ultron when she speaks with Coulson about Loki’s missing scepter.
