Agents of Shield Gets New Cast Member, Creators Talk About Midseason Finale

December 12th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments



Though it’s been a few days since the midseason finale of Agents of Shield, it’s reveals are still having effects on the Marvel Universe at large. Some of the producers talked about the reveals and what it will mean to the show:

“It was somewhat of a moving target early on, in that we knew Skye would be an orphan and would uncover secrets about her past. We had an idea of what we wanted some of those to be that found their ways into the storyline, but exactly who she was we landed on early last season, or midway through last season. We started setting it up early in the beginning of last season.”

And now it’s revealed that Skye is infact Daisy Johnson, aka Quake, who is now an Inhuman. A property that will chance the Marvel Universe as we know it:

“It’s been a property in the Marvel Universe that we’ve been interested in since the beginning. Our tagline when we began the show was ‘not all heroes are super,’ and we wanted to focus on that and highlight that for the first season. Now as we move forward we’re diving deeper into the Marvel Universe, and it’s our way of exploring a whole new world that may be comprised of people who have special abilities. We think that’s going to open everything up for us.”

Speaking of opening up, Blair Underwood has been signed on to play Dr. Andrew Garner, who is May’s Ex-husband in the show. He will make his debut when the show returns in March.
