Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron hit theaters over the weekend, ringing up a massive $187.6 million openinghaul at the box office, the second biggest in history next to 2012's Marvel's The Avengers. Last week's episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. helped set up Avengers: Age of Ultron, by leading into the sequel's opening scene. But, in the coming weeks, the series will also shed more light on a plot hole from Avengers: Age of Ultron. There will be SPOILERS for Avengers: Age of Ultron below, so if you haven't seen it yet, read on at your own risk.
There is a scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron where Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and the Avengers assemble at Hawkeye's (Jeremy Renner) house, to determine where they should go from here in their battle against the mighty Ultron (James Spader). Fury ends up promising some sort of assistance before he leaves, and isn't seen again for the bulk of the movie, until he makes a triumphant return with a massive Helicarrier, which was believed to be lost forever when Hydra took over S.H.I.E.L.D. in last year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. According to producer Kevin Feige, this will be addressed during an upcoming episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
"I think it's fair to say you could fill in some of those blanks in the coming weeks on Tuesday at 9."
It isn't known if this plot hole will be addressed in tomorrow night's episode, "Scars", or the two-part season finale, "S.O.S. (1)" and "S.O.S. (2)" on Tuesday, May 12. It isn't known if there will be other aspects of Avengers: Age of Ultron that will be addressed in the last three episodes, but we'll find out soon enough. Kevin Feige never confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson himself will be coming back to guest star on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but he has done so in the past, so it wouldn't be surprising if he surfaced again.
