Beginning of the end...
Entertainment Weekly reports that Marvel and ABC have released a poster for the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season finale, called "Beginning of the End", which airs next week. Here are highlights of an interview with executive producer Jeffrey Bell about the finale's poster:
On the color scheme of the poster: "It's hard to beat black, white and red as a color combo: there's a reason that works and it just really pops. As I said before, the beauty of coming out of the Marvel world is that Marvel was founded on really great artists. And the fact that we have so many great logos and iconographies and the gadgets…in episode 21, there are some retro S.H.I.E.L.D. gadgets. We went back and looked at some of the old drawings from the comics and we tried to find things that had approximated with the comics with some of the older gadgets. And that was a lot of fun for us."
On if S.H.I.E.L.D. can bounce back: "We talk about that in the last episode. As of right now, S.H.I.E.L.D. is in disarray — if not fallen — and we have people who don't really care who are determined to bring certain other characters to justice no matter what. And through episodes 21 and 22, I think you'll see that we address the very question you ask and, we believe, set a compass for what season two will be once they tell us we officially have a season two. Because we are called Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and it would be Marvel's Agents of Something, Marvel's Agents of Stay Tuned And Find Out, Marvel's Agents of Hydra…there's so many different ways, but we are called Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. so whether it's official or not, that's the fun: us trying to figure out what this looks like now."
On the destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D.: "One of the beauties now of S.H.I.E.L.D. sort of crumbling is that it's always weird to write a giant omnipotent organization that snoops on your phone calls and has infinite knowledge of everything, and go "but we're the good guys!" You know? It's tricky sometimes to make you feel like "Yay! They're listening in!" And so now we truly are underdogs. Now we really are on our own and have to use limited resources, and have to find other ways to stop the bad guys. And for us as storytellers, that's really exciting."
