Kevin Feige: A Huge Plot Hole in Avengers: Age of Ultron Will Be Explained on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
There were already several Avengers: Age of Ultron Easter eggs on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. leading up to the film's release this past weekend, but it turns out that, in true Marvel fashion, more connectivity is yet to come. In a new interview with Slashfilm, Marvel's Kevin Feige claimed that future episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will provide explanations for a few big questions that went unanswered in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In the middle of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Nick Fury leaves for a good portion of the film, having promised to return with some kind of "help." He then comes to rescue the Avengers with a working Helicarrier, which was thought to be lost during Hydra's takeover of S.H.I.E.L.D. He gives a brief explanation, saying that he called in a few favors and "dusted off some mothballs," but this explanation didn't really suffice for many fans.

Feige explained the moment to Slashfilm as follows:

Slashfilm: Now, when Nick Fury goes away and comes back with a Helicarrier, that seems like a big chunk of off screen story. Is that something we might see referenced on SHIELD?

Feige: I think it's fair to say you could fill in some of those blanks in the coming weeks on Tuesday at 9.

So there you have it. Plot holes can get annoying, but considering how overcrowded this movie already was, it makes sense that they would try to push off some of the exposition to other projects. Plus, it's Marvel, and they like to connect things.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 8pm on ABC.
