Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.': Agent Jasper Sitwell Returns for “The Hub”
Regardless of whatever problems Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' might have in its inaugural season, ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent series is fast exhausting its reservoir of recognizable S.H.I.E.L.D. faces to put in cameos. Following Titus Welliver's announced return as 'Item 47' Agent Blake, Maximiliano Hernandez has been announced to reprise the role of Agent Jasper Sitwell in the seventh episode of the season "The Hub."
It isn't known exactly what brings Sitwell back into the fold, though like Agent Blake, we hope Coulson's presence raises more than a few questions over his surprise resurrection following the events of 'The Avengers.' Hernandez had regularly appeared as Agent Sitwell opposite Clark Gregg's character, stepping in for him in the 'Item 47' one-shot that inspired 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' The character has also been confirmed to appear in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' next year:
