The TV Series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. tied into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on several occasions. It’s no different for the upcoming return of Agent Carter. According to showrunner, Michele Fazekas, season 2 of Agent Carter will introduce Doctor Strange’s Darkforce. The second season of the series is set to take things into a fantasy/supernatural direction. The show will feature the negative energy known as Darkforce (Marvel comics), which is what characters tap into to derive their powers from. This is one of the things that Peggy (Hayley Atwell) goes to Los Angeles to investigate. It will be referred by the more scientific name of, Isodyne.
Here’s what showrunner, Michele Fazekas said about it during an interview with CBR:
“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.”
