Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has plenty of Marvel-ous surprises in store for Season 3’s 2016 return, from Secret Warriors to Inhumans, and now another familiar face has been set in stone. Or metal. Or diamond! In any case, we can exclusively reveal that Brian Patrick Wade will reprise his role as Carl “Crusher” Creel, AKA Marvel’s Absorbing Man, but is he friend or foe this time out?

It’s hard to believe Agent Carter is already approaching the end of Season 2 (and hopefully just the season), but already Coulson and the modern Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are bursting at the seams to return. Our first 2016 trailer bounces back with new additions to the Secret Warriors team, along with Ward’s creepy return and other Inhumans.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been slow-going to build a “Secret Warriors” team after the initial tease at Comic-Con, but may finally Slingshot development in its Season 3 return. Natalia Cordova-Buckley has joined the Marvel drama in the comic role of Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, a notable member of the Secret Warriors from the books.
Much as we’ve adored the first few weeks of Agent Carter Season 2, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans are eager to pick up on the 2015 cliffhanger that saw Grant Ward manifesting yet another Inhuman threat. Say no more, S.H.I.E.L.D. fans, as the first 2016 synopsis has arrived, leading the team to bounce back with a pursuit of even more super-powered Secret Warriors!
Whether the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff itself is Most Wanted, Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter are one step closer to their own series. The pilot spinoff has officially added Delroy Lindo in the role of Marvel adventurer Dominic Fortune, bringing Marvel’s Most Wanted a little more into focus.
The other day saw John Ridley confirming that his long-developing Marvel TV series was still in the mix, even as no one knows what, or when the project represents. And even as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gears up for a spinoff, it seems another live-action comedy behind Marvel’s Damage Control may be in contention for the ever-expanding universe.
Poor Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. First, Joss Whedon flat-out admits that the TV series get “leftovers” from their cinematic brethren, and now S.H.I.E.L.D.’s one major Marvel tie-in may not get the attention it deserves either. According to Clark Gregg, none of Agents’ work with the Inhumans of Marvel lore may end up tying into the 2019 movie version after all.
As Marvel gears up to shoot the pilot of its Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff Most Wanted, there’s been significantly less movement around American Crime head John Ridley’s top-secret Marvel TV series. Ridley himself confirms that the series remains in development, though we’re no closer to learning what it actually is.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. remains benched until March, following Agent Carter’s Season 2 return, but at least one other Agent remains active. Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and partner Lance Hunter will still have their day, as ABC confirms a pilot order for their Most Wanted spinoff series.
A ways back, Avengers director and ex-Marvel mainstay Joss Whedon seemed to cast shade at ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. over Coulson’s resurrection, despite he himself directing the pilot, noting that movies would consider the character dead. Now, Whedon clarifies his comments, denying he regrets keeping Clark Gregg in his badass role, even as Marvel TV tends to get the movies’ “leftovers.”
