The ABC show really wants you to know that they heard your complaints about it not having any comic book characters.
A few days after casting Adrienne Palicki as Mockingbird, Agents of SHIELD has cast the Absorbing Man, a well-known Marvel villain. Brian Patrick Wade will play Crusher Creel in the show's premiere episode this fall.
When asked about the casting, as well as the addition of several other Marvel characters to the show's cast this fall, a fictional Agents of SHIELD producer told the Outhouse that they had been listening to criticism leveled at the show online. "Apparently, people wanted Marvel characters to appear on a show called Marvel's Agents of SHIELD," the producer said. "And here we thought that people wanted a bunch of generic, forgettable one-off villains."
Several other Marvel characters including Lance Hunter (played by Nick Blood), Kraken (Reed Diamond), Alphonso Mackenzie (played by Henry Simmons) and Mockingbird were previously announced to appear on the show.
Marvel also released the below image of Wade playing Creel, which depicts Creel as an evil man who enjoys tearing off innocent t-shirt sleeves for fun. Agents of SHIELD's second season will begin on September 23rd.
