A Visual Set of Clues

In the poster, Phil Coulson and the other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are attired in 1930s period costume pieces, with the team’s time-traveling Zephyr One ship behind them.

According to Marvel, an all-new Zephyr is set to time-jump at any moment. With the clock ticking, the team travels through time to push the limits of bending the laws of space and time in order to save the planet, reconnect their team, and return to the present.
