Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
At the ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Comic-Con panel in San Diego, Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb revealed that the Inhuman character, Lash, was coming to the show.
During the panel, a video was shown of co-creators Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen in the writers room, thinking of what to do in season 3. In the video, clues were dropped about what may happen in the series’ third season.
Whedon was throwing darts at a board filled with faces of the characters, keeping a score on a marker board
where whichever character gets the most points, winds up dead. Actress Elizabeth Henstridge, who plays Jemma Simmons, observed just before the lights went down on the panel that in the video, the words BEYOND VERY DEAD.
Also toward the end of the writers’ room video, Anthony Mackie aka Falcon walked in with donuts, hinting that he’s bound to guest star in season 3.
What is clear from the video is that Coulson (Clark Gregg) is assembling a covert group of warriors, and that Skye (Chloe Bennet) AKA Daisy Johnson, will be called Quake. Also, a new plane will get the name Zephyr 1.
‘Agent Carter ‘ executive producer Michele Fazekas told the Comic Con crowd at the Marvel TV panel that Agent Carter is heading to Los Angeles for season 2. “We like the idea of old Hollywood, its grit and crime” said Fazekas.
Prior to the panel, Entertainment Weekly broke the news of certain developments for the upcoming season . The season will be set in Los Angeles in 1947, the same year as the Black Dahlia Murder. The SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) will hand Peggy Carter a case that the LAPD just can’t crack.
According to Fazekas, “We’re very much being inspired by noir films. We keep talking about LA Confidential and Chinatown.”
In addition to James D’Arcy (Edwin Jarvis) and Enver Gjokaj (Daniel Sousa) returning, Chad Michael Murray (Jack Thompson) has been officially signed for season 2. Thompson takes over SSR in New York, but not the whole org.
