AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.: Clark Gregg Teases Superheros Showing Up And Victoria Hand Joins The Crew
ABC and Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. really seems to be hitting its stride. The series started out a little shaky, but the last few episodes have shown signs of improvement. As the season goes on things are going to get bigger and better. We heard that the episode airing the 19th of this month will deal with the fallout from Thor: The Dark World, but now S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg teases what may go down in that particular episode. If that wasn’t enough to excite you, another comic book character has been announced for a future episode of the show.
While walking the red carpet for the Thor: The Dark World premiere, Gregg revealed an interesting little tidbit about the episode that will tie in to the film. He talked about it connecting into the film and even dropped a little tease that there might be some plans to finally show a superhero (via ComicBook):
We have another episode coming up that really connects to Thor: The Dark World and kind of may contain some additional story elements. I can’t spoil anything, but it’s great to be connective tissue. That’s what I was. Now, it’s what the show is. And it’s nice when they get to the part where there might be some superheroes and some fighting, and they don’t say Coulson’s gone now. They say, ‘Coulson suit up.’
That’s a little vague, but it sounds like the show might be bringing in another big gun in the near future. We’ve already seen Maria Hill and Nick Fury, so hopefully it’s just a matter of time before a hero stops by for a scene or two.
While we wait to see if the show opens that particular box, we know they are adding another comic book character into the mix. Marvel announced today that Victoria Hand will be making her debut on the November 12th episode of the series. Actress Saffron Burrows will be portraying the character made famous in Brian Bendis‘ runs on Dark Avengers and New Avengers. In the comics Hand worked for Norman Osborn, so it will be interesting to see how they change things up for the show. Burrows does look strikingly similar to the comic book character, and that’s always a plus. What do you think about Hand appearing on the show? Do you hope they get a hero to appear before long?
