‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 2 Premiere Photos: Lucy Lawless and Absorbing Man Emerge from the “Shadows”
Earlier today, Marvel gave us an eyeful of 'Agent Carter''s grand entrance in 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 premiere "Shadows," but we can't keep living in the past, baby! See Lucy Lawless and Adrian Pasdar's Glenn Talbot taking on Marvel 'Hulk' baddie the Absorbing Man in the full photo set from Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 debut, "Shadows"!
Though OG 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' team members Ward, Fitz and Simmons are only present for the cast photo above, rather than the 18 new photos of the September 23 premiere, we do get a heaping helping of
Colonel General Talbot's return, as both he and his family are menaced by Brian Patrick Wade's Carl "Crusher" Creel. Enter a full-scale military force (and what appears to be Lucy Lawless' Isabelle Hartley and Nick Blood's Lance Hunter undercover) to take the villain down, while back at Coulson's fancy new digs, Skye, May and Billy Koenig (Patton Oswalt) run the show.
Meanwhile, here's how ABC describes September 23 premiere "Shadows":
Coulson and his team are now wanted fugitives with limited resources--but that's not stopping them from keeping the world safe from powerful and unseen threats everywhere. However, with new members they hardly know, will S.H.I.E.L.D. ever be trusted again?
Guest starring are B.J. Britt as Agent Antoine Triplett, Nick Blood as Agent Lance Hunter, Adrian Pasdar as Brigadier General Glenn Talbot, Henry Simmons as Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie, Patton Oswalt as Agent Billy Koenig, Lucy Lawless as Isabelle "Izzy" Hartley, Wilmer Calderon as Idaho, Reed Diamond as Daniel Whitehall, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Brian Patrick Wade as Carl Creel, Matthew Glave as Roger Browning, Simon Kassianides as Sunil Bakshi, George Stephanopoulos as self, Raquel Gardner as Carla Talbot, Ben Turner Nixon as Hydra Officer, Franco Vega as Military Leader, Rich Ceraulo as Soldier #1, and JB Tadena as Private Tilden.
Elsewhere of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2, we know that 'Dollhouse’ star and Whedon favorite Reed Diamond will play Daniel Whitehall (Secret Wars’ Kraken) as a Hydra baddie, while 'Twin Peaks' star Kyle MacLachlan will appear as Skye's apparently-gooey father. Cobie Smulders' Maria Hill has been confirmed for an eventual reappearance as well, and 'Friday Night Lights' star Adrianne Palicki will play Barbara Morse, better known as Marvel's "Mockingbird."
Well, what are you waiting for? We're finally excited about 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' again, so check out the full set of "Shadows" in the photos below, and tell us what you want to see when ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent drama returns on September 23!
