Agents Of SHIELD has finally cast the actress who will be playing Barbara "Mockingbird" Morse in Season 2. You could say, she's a wonder-ful choice!
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is already set to have a number of new faces appear in the second season of the show, having announced appearances by Lucy Lawless (Isabelle Hartley), Reed Diamond (Daniel Whitehall), and Nick Blood (Lance Hunter) at San Diego Comic-Con last month. But there is a lot of episodes ahead, and the series isn't done adding to recurring cast members.
We can expect that the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be quite different from its first season –and not just because the titular clandestine organization ended up being massively corrupt and overrun by HYDRA agents. In addition to that fact, we also expect a whole bunch of new characters to be introduced… and today at San Diego Comic-Con we got early word on the newbies who are coming aboard.
Lucy Lawless is what you might call a geek-friendly actress. While she got her start on the fantasy series Xena: Warrior Princess, she has followed it with great appearances in genre shows like Battlestar Galactica and Spartacus. Because of these credits, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is certainly something that fans would expect her to eventually become a part of, and now that idea is actually becoming a reality.
Following CW, CBS, NBC and Fox's announcements of their own Fall 2014 premiere date schedules, ABC has finally unveiled their own lineup of fall premieres. Among the new series set with premiere dates for the fall are the new comedy Selfie and Shona Rhimes' new drama starring Viola Davis, How To Get Away With Murder, among some other promising series.
A year ago, almost to the day we were looking at the above photo for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s cast and wondering who these characters were. And also how Coulson could possibly be alive.
ABC has released its 2014-2015 lineup. It includes a slight move for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will return for Season 2 this fall, but will air an hour later than usual. Meanwhile, Scandal and Grey's Anatomy have been shifted up on the Thursday night schedule.
While we might have expected renewals for shows like Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and Modern Family, the fate of some of ABC's new series was a bit less certain. But word is coming down the pipeline for many of them, and it's good news for Resurrection and The Goldbergs, which join Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. among ABC's freshman series that will be back for Season 2 in the 2014-2015 season.
Marvel Studios has been on a tear these last couple years, with both The Avengers and Iron Man 3 ranking as some of the highest grossing movies of all time, and that incredible success seems to be continuing on the small screen. News has arrived that ABC has not only renewed Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for a second season, but has also given the greenlight to Agent Carter, the period series that will star Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, her character from Captain America: The First Avenger.
It's nights like tonight where I almost wish I was one of those people in the future who are binge-watching all of Season 1 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because those people will get to jump to next week's episode right away. The rest of us have to sit and wait until next Tuesday night for the "Beginning of the End," which is actually the end of the season -- but hopefully not the series.
These last few episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. feel like a substantial payoff for those of us who've been patient enough through the first half of the season to stick with the show. All of those episodes spent getting to know these characters and watching them bond has built our investment little by little have, making each turn matter all the more now that the lines have been drawn. Spoilers from "Nothing Personal" ahead!
We're down to the last few episodes of of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s first -- and hopefully not last -- season. Those ready for a look at next week's episode and the one after that will appreciate these photos and episode descriptions. Spoilers ahead!
Oh, the suspense is maddening! Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is generating some serious momentum with its post-Captain America: The Winter Soldier episodes and tonight's episode was no exception, as "The Only Light in the Darkness" divided the group. Spoilers if you haven't seen it yet!
As the preview for next Tuesday night's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ("The Only Light in the Darkness") teased, the episode will include an appearance by Whedonverse veteran Amy Acker, who's playing a key role in this story.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. delivered another great episode last night, filling us in a bit more on Ward's situation and sending Coulson and his team to their next destination. The preview for next Tuesday night's episode, "The Only Light in the Darkness," gives us a peek at Amy Acker's character Audrey and also indicates that Ward and Skye will be getting a bit closer... or not.
