New 'Agents of SHIELD' Season 5 Extended Trailer Released

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Five has a new extended preview trailer that you can watch above!

In this latest season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Coulson and his team trade the hellish threat of the Darkhold and the Matrix-like world of the Framework for the Alien-style threats of outer space.

This extended trailer better lays out the seasonal arc, in which Coulson's team wakes up on a space station, with a new alien threat stalking them. There's also the continued sub-plot of Coulson somehow being a focal point connection for all of the alien events the MCU has seen since The Avengers, with this mysterious new character in the trailer claiming to be part of a cult that worships Coulson as some kind of savior of humanity against extraterrestrial threat.

Marvel fans have been theorizing for years that Coulson could have a greater destiny to come in the MCU - even going to far as to predict the character could become Mar-Vel or some other established cosmic character. With the MCU headed for storylines like Infinity War and Captain Marvel, this would be the time for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to better bridge the earth and cosmic sides of the MCU with some exciting developments, and not just some throwaway tangential storyline. Seeing Kree warriors appearing in this Season Five footage has been a promising first step in that direction.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on Friday, December 1st.
