Agent Carter Boasts “Doctor Strange” Tie-Ins

ABC’s “Marvel’s Agent Carter” is set to kick off its second season next week with the series shifting its location to Los Angeles for its sophomore outing. Though the first season had plenty of callbacks to “Captain America: The First Avenger,” it sounds like the upcoming second season wil include a key connection to the upcoming “Doctor Strange” film.

Speaking with CBR, executive producer Michele Fazekas has revealed that an extra-dimensional energy source in the season has ties to the powers that will be seen in the “Doctor Strange” film:

“Basically, Isodyne is a company that we invented based in part on real life companies like Radiodyne or General Atomic or the beginnings of the Jet Propulsion Lab – all of which were in L.A. in the ’40s, and were developing the space program and were developing nukes.

That’s what Isodyne is, and what you’ll learn is they were involved in the nuclear testing out in the desert when they were testing the, at the time they were calling it the atom bomb — and one of these tests didn’t go as expected.

You’ll learn more about that in Season 2 , but they stumble upon what people in the Marvel Universe will know as Darkforce, but because they’ve never seen it before they just name it Zero Matter. That’s our tie-in to the Doctor Strange universe, and also to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because you’ve seen it in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as well.”

That last line refers to S.H.I.E.L.D. villain Blackout who was powered by Darkforce and it suggests maybe the villains of the “Doctor Strange” movie have a way of accessing it as well.
