Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' will return from the "Shadows" for a second season tonight, the first of which to not have a major Marvel movie hanging over its head, absorbing plot from its small-screen brethren. The 'Avengers'-adjacent drama came with some lofty expectations in its inaugural season, but with lessons learned, we took a comprehensive look at the pitfalls, the possibilities, the perils and the promise of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2.
As next week's Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 premiere creeps further and further out of the "Shadows," our renewed optimism for ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent series only grows. Cue the latest clip from Tuesday's premiere, as new recruit Lucy Lawless goes dark on some rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and has a not-so-friendly encounter with Marvel supervillain The Absorbing Man!
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"!
Get ready to re-enter the arena! 'Spartacus: The Complete Series' will finally hit shelves on Blu-ray and DVD on September 16, and to celebrate we’re giving you a chance to take home this fantastic box set.
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!
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?
Given that 'Parks and Recreation' season 5 finale "Are You Better Off?" ended on a mild cliffhanger that implied Lucy Lawless' Ron Swanson-ladyfriend Diane would take on a much more prominent role going forward, we're glad to see season 6 will keep Baby Swanson on track. Lawless will return for the 'Parks and Recreation' season 6 premiere, but how involved will she be going forward?
Now that 'Parks and Recreation' season 5 has reached full swing, it's high time for a guest star, don't you think? No, we're not seeing the debut of 'Breaking Bad's' Jonathan Banks just yet, but who better to kick-off a season of surprise appearances than Xena herself, Lucy Lawless! Perhaps the only woman strong enough to truly tame Ron Swanson, Lawless will make her first appearance in Thursday's "How a Bill Becomes A Law," so how would you like a first-look?
Even after 'Parks and Recreation's' spectacular debut last night with season 5 premiere "Ms. Knope Goes To Washington," we still can't wait for some of the upcoming episodes. In addition to a guest turn from 'Breaking Bad' star Jonathan Banks, we'll also be privvy to a multi-episode arc from Xena herself, Lucy Lawless! But apart from a new love interest for Ron Swanson, who will the lovely lady Lucy Lawless play? Are you ready to see her in action?
We're torn by what might be the coolest casting of the day. Should the honor got to 'Torchwood' star John Barrowman for taking a role in The CW's 'Arrow' or Xena herself for Lucy Lawless' just-announced turn in 'Parks and Recreation' season 5?! Chakram to our head, we've got to go with Lucy Lawless. The also-'Spartacus' star has landed a multi-episode arc in Pawnee, Indiana, but who will the actress play? Will Ron Swanson rise to the occasion?
