Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Preview: Skye Shows Off “The Asset,” Coulson Meets Graviton
Opinions may have proven a bit mixed on Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ episode 2, “0-8-4,” even with its big ‘Avengers‘ cameo, but will the ABC series gravitate toward its most exciting hour yet as the team faces its first Marvel supervillain in “The Asset“? We’ve got the first official photos of Coulson squaring off with Marvel’s Dr. Franklin Hall (Ian Hart), while Skye struggles to find her spot on the team!
Judging by the first round of photos from next week’s all-new ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ Coulson’s team could still use a bit of work in figuring out its strengths, as Skye uses herself as pretty-in-pink bait to get in close with the menacing Ian Quinn (‘Ghost Whisperer’ star David Conrad). Meanwhile, Coulson gets up close with a pre-Graviton Dr. Franklin Hall, though based on what we’ve seen from the trailer, the gravity of the situation will soon become apparent.
From Marvel’s official press description of “The Asset”:
“The Asset” – When the brilliant scientist, Dr. Franklin Hall, is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in–pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down.
Guest starring are Ian Hart as Dr. Franklin Hall, David Conrad as Ian Quinn, Josh Cowdery as Agent Tyler, Bodie Newcomb as Agent Mack, Scott Subiono as Todd Chesterfield, Vachik Mangassarian as Qasim Zaghlul, Assaf Cohen as translator, Brandon Molale as Quinn’s main guard.
It remains to be seen if ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will throw in any other big movies cameos after the credits, but in the meantime, check out the full photo gallery from “The Asset” below,and tell us what you think of the ABC ‘Avengers’-adjacent series thus far!
