S.H.I.E.L.D. Marvel’s agents go back in time in season 7 to save the world — and their oldest foe?
The ABC super series trailer premiered on Tuesday, offering viewers a preview of the journeys through history that the team is poised for in their final season, as they fight to save time and space from the Chronicles.
The clip picks up New York City in 1931, where a group of policemen go head-to-head with the mysterious otherworldly creatures, not taking the threat seriously until it’s much too late.
“What do you want?” leaves the last cop standing pleading, as the Chronicoms stand with a futuristic device above him.
The inquisitive answer? “Your name.” “We need to save HYDRA,” responds a newly revived Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg).
The S.H.I.E.L.D. season 7 poster unveiled exclusively by ET last week. The spectacular main art by artist Kyle Lambert shows each team member equipped with various styles of retro equipment, along with a photo of a shuttle launch, an early car, and a 50s-style diner, as well as Zephyr One’s time-hopping ship from the team.
In a fedora and trenchcoat, Coulson looks dapper, while Daisy and Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) wear fashions and hairstyles in the mid-1900s — with Simmons channeling Captain America: Peggy Carter in a major way, the First Avenger.
Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) and Yo-Yo (Natalia Cordova-Buckley) seem to have been wearing costumes for decades to come — with Yo-Yo looking ’70s-ish and May being uncharacteristically formal in a dress and jewelry — while Deke (Jeff Ward) gives off massive Josh Brolin-in-Goonies vibes. Together with their colleagues, Mack (Henry Simmons) and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) are also pictured, but with less contextual details in their ensembles.
At last September’s Toronto International Film Festival, ET spoke with Bennet at the premiere of her animated film, Abominable, where she opened up to say goodbye to the show and her character after seven seasons.
By the point, I think they did a really good job, she said. It’s been very hard to say farewell to those characters. It feels like a graduation.
