Marvel loves using their #itsallconnected hashtag to illustrate how the movies, such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier, connect to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. It’s a smart idea as if you convince the millions of people who watched the Cap sequel in theaters to tune into the Marvel television series, ratings will go up. But what about other movies? Just because it’s a show that’s about S.H.I.E.L.D. (or was), it doesn’t mean that the series won’t connect into other Marvel movies. After all there were not one, but two, Thor episodes this season.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters in August, which will be before the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. kicks off, but there’s already a theory of how the two connect.
Most Marvel fans are aware of the Kree that Coulson found in Project T.A.H.I.T.I.. The mysterious “blue guy”, or “G.H.” in the series could have an origin that connects directly to Guardians of the Galaxy.
Peter Quill’s origin in Guardians of the Galaxy usually involves him starting out on Earth and then being swept away for a life in space. The theory, based on spy shots from the filming, is that in the movie Yondu rescues Peter Quill from an attack on his home on Earth and then raises Quill. Here’s a shot of Michael Rooker while filming the scene that may be Quill’s origin:
How does this connect to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Right now most people believe that the Kree body in the GH facility was left behind as part of that attack that Yondu saves Peter Quill from. That’s where S.H.I.E.L.D. got their hands on an alien body long before the Battle of New York in The Avengers.
Right now there’s no rumor saying we’ll learn the origin of G.H. in tomorrow’s season finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. so this is a mystery that will have to wait until season two…
