Agent Carter starts its second season next week, and we already have news that they are looking to once again tie themselves into the larger Marvel universe, only this time with an unreleased movie in the form of Doctor Strange.
According to showrunner Michele Fazekas, that tie-in will be an extra-dimensional, negative energy called the Darkforce first introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Season 1 of ABC’s other little Marvel TV show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Peggy will come across it when her newest mission sends her to Los Angeles.
In a recent interview Fazekas gave the following information:
“Basically, Isodyne is a company that we invented based in part on real life companies like Radiodyne or General Atomic or the beginnings of the Jet Propulsion Lab — all of which were in L.A. in the ’40s, and were developing the space program and were developing nukes,” explained Fazekas. “That’s what Isodyne is, and what you’ll learn is they were involved in the nuclear testing out in the desert when they were testing the, at the time they were calling it the atom bomb — and one of these tests didn’t go as expected. You’ll learn more about that in Season 2, but they stumble upon what people in the Marvel Universe will know as Darkforce, but because they’ve never seen it before they just name it Zero Matter. That’s our tie-in to the ‘Doctor Strange’ universe, and also to ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ because you’ve seen it in ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ as well.”
Now as long as this gets referenced in Doctor Strange this should be a cool little nod between the television shows and how they can play into the movie universe moving forward.
