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.
However brightly Agent Carter shines in Season 2, there’s no getting around the diminished ratings from Peggy’s first year, and a recent decision to double-up the remaining episodes on Tuesday. Now, Hayley Atwell herself might be moving on to a different ABC series with a new pilot order, so could Agent Carter Season 3 end up lost to time?
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!
Ubiquitous though they are these days, cast reunions aren’t always so easy to put together. Jimmy Kimmel and George Clooney learned this the hard way, trying to reunite the cast of ER for a new sketch, but hey, there’s always the time Doug Ross met Dr. House! That happened, right? I don’t watch TV. Yes, I appreciate the irony.
It’s reasonably fair to say that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. commands the least respect of the TV branch, always catering itself to the movies, while the Netflix series garner praise at every turn. The Avengers-adjacent drama has gotten significantly stronger in Seasons 2 and 3, but now answers for its Marvel-ous crimes in the latest Honest Trailer.
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.
If any rumor runs longer than word of a new Star Wars trilogy, it might be the promise of a live-action TV series set in the same galaxy far, far away, one which has been through multiple iterations over the last decade. Now, Lucasfilm bosses and other insiders officially shoot down hopes for a Star Wars tie-in on TV, not wanting the follow the Marvel path.
Early word of The X-Files 2016 return has been somewhat less than positive, but if nothing else, ‘90s fans can’t deny the thrill of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reuniting for another go. Neither can Jimmy Kimmel, it seems, watching Mulder and Scully make out in a new X-Files parody from last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
