Titled ‘An Inside Look at the World of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have provided us a briefing which details just how the events of New York have affected S.H.I.E.L.D., its agents and the world. The full document is as follows:
When Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens, about two years have passed since the alien invasion of New York was repulsed by Nick Fury’s special team, The Avengers. The world is now well aware that extra-terrestrials, godlike beings and monsters may be lurking in the cosmos and that Super Heroes walk among us. The demand for protection of the world’s citizenry has reached a zenith. In response to the world’s justifiable fears, S.H.I.E.L.D. has expanded its presence to enhance the security of Earth.
