Mass Effect 3 fans spotted something slightly ‘off’ about an establishing shot in an episode of Marvel’s Agents of Shield. See what you make of this one folks.

UPDATE: A pair of BioWare developers have responded to the matter on Twitter. They had this to say:

The attached image makes you wonder if this sort of thing is happening more often that we realise.

Cheers Eurogamer.

ORIGINAL STORY: Eurogamer reports that BioWare’s ‘Mass Effect 3: Earth Alliance’ lithograph print seems to have stacked up quite nicely with a building seen in Agents of Shield’s December 10 episode, ‘The Bridge.’

Here’s the original BioWare print, sold in a limited print run of 500 copies:

Compare that to the Agents of Shield establishing shot (which is watermarked so I won’t embed it here), and you can definitely see some architectural similarities, can’t you?

It’s not clear if show-makers ABC or Marvel asked EA or the studio for use of the imagery, but none of the parties have stepped forward regarding the matter.

We’ll have more as it comes.
