ABC has released a new poster for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. The Marvel drama returns to TV for its second season in a matter of days. (Spoilers if you're not caught up on Season 1!) Let's take a look at this poster...

There are a couple of interesting things to note about the poster (via Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Facebook page). There's the ominous red and black coloring, and the stern expression on Coulson's face...

To Coulson's left and right, we have Chloe Bennet as Skye and Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May. Next to them are Iain De Caestacker as Fitz over on the left, and Elizabeth Henstridge as Simmons. Finally, on the ends, it looks like that might be Nick Blood as Agent Lance Hunter over on the left (confirmed), and Brett Dalton's Grant Ward on the right.

It's well worth pointing out that Ward is facing the other way, which seems like a pretty obvious nod to his betrayal in Season 1. He turned his back on S.H.I.E.L.D. in an effort to serve John Garrett (Bill Paxton), who turned out to be a Hydra supporter. Well, Ward's back is turned to us in this image, and there's a noticeable crack between him and the rest of the team...

Is there a chance Ward will turn things around for himself and take a shot at redemption? I like to think that because the crack doesn't completely sever Ward from the rest of the group, there's a chance he'll find his way back.

Let's move on to the man all the way on the left. At first I thought we were seeing two Wards in this image, but take a closer look at his face, and it looks like we may be seeing Nick Blood's character Lance Hunter...

Nick Blood

Nick Blood is one of a handful of actors who are set to appear in Season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

No sign of Triplett in the new poster, but B.J. Britt's character is featured in the cast photo for Season 2....
