ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, new details about 'Avengers 2' are spilled, new rumors about 'Batman vs. Superman' arise, and 'Arrow' casts a bunch of new actors.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Where last week saw Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." dropping an impressive season 2 character reveal in the form of Brian Patrick Wade's Absorbing Man, our latest look at the September premiere of ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent series is much more battle-tested. Holster your chakram and check out 'Xena' star Lucy Lawless as Agent Isabelle Hartley in a new photo from 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2!
Just the other day Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' bought itself some serious season 2 credit with the addition of Adrianne Palicki as Marvel's Mockingbird, but now the 'Avengers'-adjacent series has added what might be its most high-profile Marvel baddie yet. 'Teen Wolf' star Brian Patrick Wade will play Carl "Crusher" Creel, better known as Hulk and Thor villain "The Absorbing Man," as revealed in the first new photo from the season premiere!
Yesterday, Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' offered a cryptic season 2 tease in the form of a mysterious billboard looming over Los Angeles, but today's big reveal flies far higher. One-time 'Wonder Woman' star and all-around asskicker Adrianne Palicki is officially trading DC for Marvel, signing onto 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 as the show's first ostensible costumed hero, Bobbi "Mockingbird" Morse.
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has been a bit less transparent in promoting a new season than that of its DC counterparts, but that hasn't stopped the ABC drama from getting viewers in on the game of its latest mystery. We know why Coulson lives, but what's going on in Phil's noodle to be scrawling alien equations all over a Hollywood billboard for 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2?
Our first real look at Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 arrived with Comic-Con 2014, but even then, details were relatively light on the who, what and where of ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent series in its second run. Now, we may have a heading, as Adrian Pasdar is confirmed to reprise his role as typical Hulk-baddie Glenn Talbot in the September premiere, while Kyle MacLachlan will pop up as a "Doctor" with major ties to one of the cast. How very Strange!
The ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will have some major company later on this year when ‘Agent Carter’ comes to ABC, but what other tantalizing secrets does the Marvel TV panel at Comic-Con 2014 hold? Find out with our full Ballroom 20 account of the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ and ‘Agent Carter panels, along with a few Marvel-ous surprises!
Yesterday saw Marvel playing cryptic with the announcement that 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' would feature 'Xena' veteran Lucy Lawless in a mysterious season 2 role, but its latest addition requires far less Level 7 clearance. Before she enters the 'Age of Ultron,' Cobie Smulders will reprise the role of Agent Maria Hill in 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2!

Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 has kept casting pretty quiet on the march to Comic-Con 2014, particularly compared to the CW's 'Arrow' or 'Flash,' but at long last the Marvel 'Avengers' offshoot series has its first major might. 'Xena' herself, Lucy Lawless will guest star in the upcoming second season of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' but in what marvelous role?
