Why Iain De Caestecker mourned questions against Peter!
Movie theater operators, after a year of dismal ticket sales during the pandemic, are hoping a lineup of superheroes, fighter pilots and cinema’s most famous spy will help them stage a comeback in 2021.Roughly two-thirds of theaters remain shut in the United States and Canada, normally the world’s largest film market. Box office receipts in 2020 plunged 80% from a year earlier.
Did the S.H.I.E.L.D. finale raise a whole bunch of new questions with the end? Sure, but it had answered the essential questions, and the open endings felt more about revealing that these characters are moving on with their lives in good ways, not leaving fans hanging on life-or-death cliffhangers. The loose ends were tied off, and that doesn’t mean the stories have to be over. There’s room for a spinoff or two. Will we get a S.W.O.R.D. story for Daisy, or S.H.I.E.L.D. 2.0 with Mack and Yo-Yo, or whatever Coulson does next? Maybe not, and that’s okay. But it’s also super okay if they come back, Marvel!
Markus had an excuse for why they didn’t give Black Widow a funeral. But, why did they completely ignore her death in Spider-Man: Far From Home while the world simultaneously mourned Iron Man? Many fans were upset that no one in the MCU seemed to care about the beloved character’s death.
While the news that S.H.I.E.L.D. would end after seven seasons came as a bummer when it was announced before Season 6 even premiered, there was an upside. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. producers knew well ahead of time that the Season 7 finale would be the series finale, which was a big departure from the uncertainty that S.H.I.E.L.D. often faced heading toward the end of seasons. All the time travel shenanigans might have been a mess if they were written on the fly, or if the show had to scramble to invent a reason to write out Iain De Caestecker. Everything could be set up at the end of Season 6.
