‘Avengers 2′ Viral Site Wants to Know if You’re on Team S.H.I.E.L.D. or if You Hail Hydra
With ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘ hitting DVD and Blu-ray in a couple of weeks, and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ in the works, Marvel has set up a cool new viral site that neatly ties everything together (just like their movie universe). And fans will be rewarded handsomely for visiting the site to find out if they’re on team S.H.I.E.L.D. or part of the nefarious Hydra organization.
Most of the time viral sites just offer neat little puzzles to help uncover new images or clips, but Marvel has definitely upped the ante this time around. The S.H.I.E.L.D. vs Hydra site was launched today, which allows fans to enter information into Armin Zola’s algorithm, like which decade was the most influential in American history, and which trait you find most important.
By entering all of the information, the algorithm determines if you belong to S.H.I.E.L.D. or Hydra, and you will go on to participate and compete in a series of missions, which will be assigned to you online every week for the next four weeks. Among the prizes are autographed posters, flash drives, and Marvel comic subscriptions — all leading to the grand prize: a trip for you and a friend to next year’s premiere of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in Los Angeles. The grand prize will be announced sometime around September 22.
