Only one week to go, folks! Excited? Us too. And we've seen the thing! (Read our spoiler free review this-a-way if you haven't yet.) We expect they’ll be quite a bit of promo for AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. as the premiere date draws closer, and if it’s as good as the following video you won’t hear us complaining. Hit the player below to see a new Marvel sanctioned interview with show creator Joss somethingorother (we think he’s going to go far)…
And in further S.H.I.E.L.D. news, a short description of Episode 3 (entitled THE ASSET) has made its way online:
"When the brilliant scientist, Dr. Franklin Hall (Ian Hart), is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in, pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down."
Now the true Marvel connoisseurs amongst you will immediately recognize Franklin Hall as the real name of supervillain Graviton (guess what he has power over?), who was first introduced back in AVENGERS #158 in April 1977.
How closely he’ll resemble his character and/or arc onscreen remains to be seen, but we’re looking forward to finding out. If you're unfamiliar and can be arsed, visit the Marvel Database for the exhaustive skinny.
