Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: What's Special About Agent Coulson?

3) The Inhumans. What?

The Marvel Studios movies are going to be jumping deeper into the cosmos beginning this August with Guardians of the Galaxy. They're also collecting Infinity Stones/Gems as we saw in the post-credits scene of Thor: The Dark World, leading to the inevitable brawl with Thanos and the formation of the all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet artifact (more on that here).

Guardians of the Galaxy will likely be another stepping stone on that Infinity path and we'd expect The Inhumans to be as well - assuming Marvel Studios announces it as one of their 2016-17 releasesThe Inhumans have been widely talked about by Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige as a hot property they want to explore, and we believe it could make for an interesting followup to Guardians of the Galaxy, another possible source of an Infinity Stone, and a potential tie-in for characters like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver who have superpowers with unknown origins (at this point). With Twentieth Century Fox owning the film rights to all things mutant-related from Marvel Comics, The Inhumans can serve as their workaround to explain Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. In fact, for Agents of SHIELD, Marvel secured the trademark "Registered Gifted" to label people with special abilities. And although that hasn't reared its head too much yet in the show (outside of Scorch in Episode 5), with most of the powered antagonists finding their origins in Extremis/Centipede tech, it will eventually.
