If you want to attract more viewers to a show, you got to have some bait, and for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. they are putting out bait so big, you’d just be plain stupid to ignore. Or you could just wait for it to air on the internet, but that is besides the point.
The point is that the first trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron will air on next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s a smart move considering the show’s declining ratings, but strange improved storytelling. Hopefully it’ll be enough to attract the viewers to see that the show has improved since last season. But in the age of the Internet, I think fans might be willing to wait it out.
