Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 has opened up quite a bit in recent weeks to show off both its 'Agent Carter' cameo and a few new villains, but things have been notably light on the H-word, specifically the Hydra presence the series worked so hard to conceal last season. Well, out of the "Shadows" and into the light, as new photos from the September 23 premiere put both Peggy Carter and Hydra back in action!
We were disappointed to find Marvel's Comic-Con 2014 presence didn't extend to Netflix's upcoming 'Daredevil' series, but with October's New York Comic-Con practically taking place in the blind superhero's backyard, the Man Without Fear will finally come out of the shadows. Find out what 'Daredevil' will bring to New York Comic-Con 2014, alongside Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'!

Marvel fans were ecstatic to learn that 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 would premiere with a return appearance by Hayley Atwell's 'Agent Carter,' but the question remained what time period we'd see Peggy in. Now, the latest photo from September 23 premiere "Shadows" has answered that question with a resounding howl, placing Neal McDonough's Dum Dum Dugan and Kenneth Choi's Jim Morita back in Howling Commando action as well!
The moment ABC confirmed that Hayley Atwell would reprise her 'Agent Carter' role for a new series to accompany Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' potential crossover speculation began to flurry.
