Earlier today we caught our first look at 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' star Cobie Smulders returning to Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." as Maria Hill, though in the meantime, Coulson and his team will still have Patton Oswalt's Eric Koenig, Amy Acker's mysterious cellist, and Marvel villain Blackout to go through. Check our our first look at next week's "The Only Light in the Darkness," as Patton puts the team to the test to roust Hydra from the ranks!
Time will tell if Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' can earn back the show's good will against the likes of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and Marvel's other cinematic offerings, but its latest casting of Whedon alum Amy Acker as Coulson's oft-mentioned cellist was certainly a step in the right direction. Check out a first look at the character from an upcoming episode of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' along with insight from Acker herself!
Just when we thought Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' had made its most fan-pleasing cast in the form of nerd icon Patton Oswalt, the ABC 'Avengers'-adjacent series has tapped a Joss Whedon icon for its most on-point casting yet. 'Angel' and 'Dollhouse' alum Amy Acker will pick up horse-hair as Agent Coulson's infamous Portland cellist, but what brings the once-dead Agent back into her life?
We realize that the prospect of a 'Firefly' shocker a decade after the show had been cancelled seems like a bit of a stretch, but a recently-revealed bit of trivia from Joss Whedon has proven too good to ignore. In promoting 'Much Ado About Nothing,' Whedon revealed his own past Shakespearean ambitions for 'Firefly,' having once envisioned an episode guest starring 'Buffy' / 'Angel' alum and Whedon favorites Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, and James Marsters!
