I have had the pleasure this last week on catching up on the MCU films that followed Guardians of The Galaxy: Vol. 2, Spider-man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther

I have just started watching Season 5 of Agents Of S.H.E.E.L.D, now confident that any references to the events of the films I have watched over the last week will now not spoil any story points for me, but the Wikipedia page for [the season] states that "The end of the season dovetails with events of the film Avengers: Infinity War."

Does it simply lead into the events and revelations of the film or does it actually refer to any of them, such as the strong connection between Season 1 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which would have spoiled the films central twist if the TV show had been seen first?

You can safely watch Season 5 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. without worrying about spoiling the end of Infinity War.

There are no spoilers made, and only some very vague references to the beginning of Infinity War, and none to the movie's climax. The references are slim and not relevant to the plot of the show, and are a lot less tied into the show than the Winter Soldier reveals to Season 1 (where they were essential to understanding the plot) or even the vague references to Thor 2 earlier in that season, where the agents come to play clean-up after the events of the movie.

Go forth and watch safely.

  • Thanks for the answers folks - just finished watching it and I am still blarting tears all over the shop. Just have to wait until Christmas to watch 'Infinity War' now... Jun 10, 2018 at 18:23


The only reference made in Agents of SHIELD regarding Infinity War is name-dropping Thanos with a simple "Thanos's forces are attacking the earth as we speak".

It doesn't explore Infinity War plot points because this season was made as a series finale to have a complete ending to the show & its characters in case it wasn't renewed for another season.
