Marvel Studios Authors Reveal If ‘Agent Carter’ & ‘Agents Of Shield’ Are Canon Or Not

The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe authors Paul Terry and Tara Bennett have revealed if Agent Carter and Agent of Shield are canon to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A contentious debate between MCU fans for years has been if Agent Carter and Agents of Shield, two shows that directly spun off of Marvel Studios films, were in fact canon. Agent Carter and Agents of Shield aired prior to Disney Plus’ bevy of MCU series, and the studio has distanced themselves from the two shows, as well as the Marvel projects that debuted on Netflix. That still hasn’t stopped fans from theorizing if the events of Agents of Shield or Agent Carter directly influenced films like Avengers.

It turns out that fans may finally have the answer that they’ve been searching for for years, and it might not be what they expected. The recently released The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe details the rise of the MCU, and features never-before-known details and insights into the world’s biggest franchise. Seeing as the book is being treated by Marvel Studios as the definitive telling of the studio’s story, it’s safe to say that what’s printed amounts to the closest shade of the truth. That being said, the book makes it very clear that its prime focus lies in the films the MCU has crafted – not the shows, and therefore cannot explicitly define the nature of a show.

When it came to Agent Carter, the book states that the Hayley Atwell-led prequel series is, in fact, canon.

“Launched on January 6, the series debuted on the ABC midseason slate. Notably, Agent Carter marked the first time an MCU-originated character would transition from the big screen to the small screen, with canon storytelling that would eventually dovetail back into future films.”

Things get a bit dicey when Agents of Shield is brought into the fold. The book implies that Agents of Shield is not canon, which led to several fans debating with co-writer Tara D. Bennet on Twitter. In her various interactions with fans, Bennet made it clear that the book does not explicitly state the nature of Agents of Shield. The author also stated that its best fans read the book to understand why she and co-writer Paul Terry came to the conclusion that the Clark Gregg-led show could be considered not canon.

Tara D. Bennet has since deleted a number of tweets and instead released a statement that clarified her and her book’s stance and made it clear that nuance is key in a situation like this.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter if Agents of Shield is canonical or not as something as trivial as its existence within the larger franchise shouldn’t deprive anyone of enjoying the show as Bennet stated. And with the multiverse at the center of the MCU now, pretty much anything can be folded into the canon.

Clark Gregg Believes ‘Agents Of Shield’ Is Canon In The MCU

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD starred Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley and Jeff Ward. The series was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb. The series was produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television for ABC.

‘Batwoman’ Star Dougray Scott Refutes Allegations Made By Ruby Rose

Batwoman star Dougray Scott has refuted the allegations made by his former co-star Ruby Rose.

Yesterday, former Kate Kane actress Ruby Rose released a scathing statement filled with allegations against the executives, cast, and crew behind Batwoman. Rose singled out numerous individuals, including co-star Dougray Scott. Rose stated in the statement that Scott had a penchant for yelling at women on the set and even claimed that he hurt a female stunt double.

Ruby Rose Reacts To Wallis Day Replacing Her As Kate Kane On ‘Batwoman’

Now, Dougray Scott has fired back at the actress, calling her allegations “entirely made up” to TV Line.

“I absolutely and completely refute the defamatory and damaging claims made against me by [Ruby Rose]; they are entirely made up and never happened. As Warner Bros. Television has stated, they decided not to exercise the option to engage Ruby for Season 2… based on multiple complaints about her workplace behaviour.”

Shortly after Ruby Rose made her public statement, Warner Bros. discredited her allegations and made it clear that there were numerous complaints about the Batwoman star. Rose also singled out co-star Camrus Johnson, stating that he was an “egomaniac”. Johnson fired back as well last night, stating that Rose did not leave the role of Kate Kane under her own volition, implying that she was fired from the lead role.

Here’s the description for the next episode of Batwoman season three:

“LEFT OUT IN THE COLD – An unfortunate incident in downtown Gotham alerts Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) and the Bat Team that another missing trophy has made its way into the wrong hands. Meanwhile, a new member of the Jet family surfaces when Marquis Jet (Nick Creegan) makes a not-so-subtle entrance, interrupting a very personal moment between Ryan and Jada (Robin Givens). Back on the streets, cryogenics is the name of the game and Sophie (Meagan Tandy) reminds everyone she’s a badass, especially in the middle of life-threatening situations. Batwing (Camrus Johnson) must decide if he’s ready to suit up again, and at Mary’s (Nicole Kang) clinic, the Hippocratic Oath forces a strained sisterly moment between Alice (Rachel Skarsten) and the new doc. Greg Beeman directed the episode written by Nancy Kiu.”

The CW series stars Javicia Leslie, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson, Victoria Cartagena, Robin Givens, and Nick Creegan.
