Over the past few seasons, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has introduced the Inhumans race to the MCU, giving us the Kree background of human genetic modification and the triggering of such enhancements through terrigenesis. At the end of season 2 we saw that the terrigen crystals made their way through the ocean and into food sources all over the world, triggering a global panic as Inhumans began transforming everywhere. At the beginning of season 3 we see that S.H.I.E.L.D. has made it their responsibility to find as many Inhumans as possible and help them adjust to their new abilities.

Now, with the new Inhumans television show that’s already filming in Hawaii, we get a story that centers completely around a group of Inhumans as they struggle with their powers and finding their place in the superheroes of the MCU.

So of course, with all of this intertwining backstory, many fans are wondering if the two shows–Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhumans–will ever crossover. After all, AoS has crossed over with Marvel movies before, giving small shout outs to the MCU continuity and, of course, changing their entire world in season one with the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s HQ to Hydra. So why wouldn’t they crossover again? It makes for a somewhat connected world, right? According to AoS show front runner Jed Whedon, a crossover isn’t in the works in respect to each shows integrity.

“Without being able to say anything really about that show, it will have its own world, just as we tried to start our own world,” he has said during an interview that included Digital Spy and other media outlets. “Whether or not there’s a crossover, we will see.”

He has gone on to say that although the interconnected aspect of the MCU is fun, he doesn’t want the viewers to get a fragmented experience.

“Everything is connected, and that’s fun to play with,” Whedon has said. “But the point of our show is to be our show, and we want our fans to be rewarded for watching it without having to watch everything else […] But we also want there to be a bigger reward for people who watch all of them, so that they’ll start to see that there are lines connecting it. It’s more fun for people who are playing the whole game, but if you don’t, you’ll still have a great rollercoaster ride.”

With the intricate storylines already dominating the AoS storyline, and Inhumans taking on the responsibility of introducing a brand new roster of characters to a new audience, keeping the shows separate for a while will probably be for the best. One thing that can definitely be agreed upon is that between S.H.I.E.L.D., Inhumans, and even FX’s Legion and Netflix’s The Defenders, Marvel’s presence in the network world is certainly growing.
