There is a possibility that the TV show “Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” might link with the upcoming movie “Captain America: Civil War.” Actor Clark Gregg feels positive that the two worlds will subsequently collide.

“Civil War has always been about the registration of superheroes and people with powers. I suspect what we’re doing will connect with that in some way,” Gregg told Entertainment Weekly at New York Comic Con.

The “Marvel: Agents of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” star added that he likes how Marvel provides a broader perspective and connects different storylines. Gregg explained how the same approach was done in the movie “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” where Captain America/Steve Rogers realizes that his close friends and colleagues are actually part of an evil group that he has been trying to stop his whole life. He said that they get to develop the personal betrayal for a longer time.

Season 3 of “Marvel: Agents of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has just started, featuring Phil Coulson (Gregg) and his team trying to handle the rise of several Inhumans, or people who suddenly gained superpowers after being exposed to the strange Terrigen Crystals. Humans immediately discovered the threat that Inhumans could pose and began hunting them. The same concept has been used in various Marvel Comics plots, which might hint how the TV show and film may be bound to cross paths in the future, Cinema Blend writes.

“We’d like to talk to some mutants, but they’re in a terrifying realm. I grew up reading comics about mutants on the subway, but they’re in this terrifying copyright zone. Maybe someday we’ll live in a peaceful world where all fandoms can react,” Gregg explains.

Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television, chose to keep quiet about the possibility. He said that Gregg’s statements are his own opinions. Movie rights to the “X-Men” are currently hold by Fox. Loeb said that the currently story of “S.H.I.E.L.D” will focus on Inhumans and explore what it means to be human. Fans should be excited on who the members of the team might be.

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 3 airs every Tuesday on ABC. “Captain America: Civil” is scheduled to release in theatres on May 5, 2016.
