Ian Hart’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Role Has A Villainous Comic Book Connection


gavitonMarvel‘s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn’t premiere until this coming Tuesday, but we’re already learning some details about future episodes. We saw set pictures of a group of mysterious red mask wearing gentleman that will appear in the fourth episode of the season, and today we’re learning what will happen in the third episode of the highly anticipated series . Marvel released the official synopsis for the episode entitled The Asset. The synopsis reveals the character Ian Hart will play, and he has a big comic book connection.

ian hartWe had heard that Hart (HBO‘s Luck and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) would be joining the show as a scientist last month. Most assumed that meant the actor would be a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist. While that may be the case, his character is known by another name in the comics. Hart will play Dr. Franklin Hall aka Graviton. You may remember the gravity manipulating baddie as the first villain The Avengers had to face in the cartoon series Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. While Joss Whedon and company said there wouldn’t be many superheroes in the show, they didn’t say anything about villains. What do you think about Hart‘s role? Do you think we’ll see his transformation into Graviton?

“The Asset” – When the brilliant scientist, Dr. Franklin Hall, is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in–pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down–on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Guest starring are Ian Hart as Dr. Franklin Hall, David Conrad as Ian Quinn, Josh Cowdery as Agent Tyler, Bodie Newcomb as Agent Mack, Scott Subiono as Todd Chesterfield, Vachik Mangassarian as Qasim Zaghlul, Assaf Cohen as translator, Brandon Molale as Quinn’s main guard.

“The Asset” was written by Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen and directed by David Solomon.
