Certainly didn’t see this one coming. Marvel has made a major announcement for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. today. One of the biggest criticisms of the show is that there isn’t enough Marvel Universe going on in it. Well they look to be changing that.
According to Marvel, we have been following an origin story with the character Mike Peterson (J. August Richards), whom after surviving an explosion while trying to save his son, will become Deathlok! Now how much exactly will he look like the cyborg remains to be seen, but this could potentially be a game changer for the show.
Wow, I have always liked the character, so I’m hoping they do this right (fingers crossed). Deathlok, who is celebrating his Marvel 40th Anniversary this year, will be appearing in live-action for the very first time in an all-new episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiering on Tuesday, February 4th at 8pm EST on ABC.
