This post is necessarily going to require spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and likely the Netflix spinoff shows as well. The Netflix shows make cracks about men in powered armor; Sokovia gets the odd mention, and Agents has been used as prequel/teaser content for more than one film. Now we have a year between Avengers 3 and 4 while other media continues to come out. If it's in the MCU in any way, consider it open season for spoilers and discuss how the rest of the shows will or won't handle the aftermath of Infinity War while we wait for Name To Be Announced to resolve it all.
