Agents of SHIELD looking for a Kree assassin?

October 25th, 2017 by Dave Bowling Comments

Agents of SHIELD is returning in December, and rumours for the new season are doing the rounds as you’d expect.

One of the more interesting ones is that the producers are currently on the lookout for an actor to play a Kree assassin. The Kree are one of the Marvel universe’s most prominent alien cultures, along with the Skrulls and the Shi’ar, and are the MacGuffin behind a fair wodge of the MCU’s current and planned stories. Kree extremist Ronan was the big bad of Guardians of the Galaxy; the Inhumans gained their powers through Kree genetic tampering with the human genome; Carol Danvers gains her powers and becomes Ms/Captain Marvel after her genes are spliced with Kree DNA; and of course the TAHITI process SHIELD used to revive Coulson after he was stabbed by Loki involved Kree genetics.

Now, it looks like the Kree are returning to Earth. While Kree involvement in Agents of SHIELD’s fifth season was confirmed at New York Comic Con recently, a report by That Hashtag Show states that the Kree in question will be Sals-Bek, one of three Kree assassins sent to assassinate the Inhuman Royal Family in the comics. Whether this means that the critically-panned Inhumans will tie in with the new season, it’s too early to say.

Agents of SHIELD will return to ABC on 1 December.
