On last night’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (read Evan’s recap here), the show introduced the character Bobbi Morse (a.k.a. Mockingbird) who, as we previously reported, would be “popping in perhaps not as an ally to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team.”  Today, we have an official image of Adrianne Palicki in Mockingbird’s tactical outfit along with some concept art.

Hit the jump to check out the outfit along with an explanation from Costume Designer Ann FoleyAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesday nights on ABC, and if you don’t watch it, you may want to next week because it’s going to have the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

agents-of-shield-season-2-logo-slice

Welcome back, true believers!  Our latest installment promises to introduce a long standing character from the comics into the Marvel cinematic universe in the form of Bobbi Morse, played by Adrianne Palicki.  Bobbi, aka Mockingbird, is the ex-wife of Avenger, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner in the movies), and has found herself on quite a few incarnations of the team herself.  In our most recent installment of the series, the gang will find themselves at odds with Ms. Morse as she is revealed to be the current head of security for Hydra.  Whether or not this is a con or a new take on the character is yet to be seen, though it would be funny to see how many undercover S.H.I.E.L.D. agents there are in Hydra at this point with the recent episode focusing on Simmons.  (Maybe there are no actual Hydra agents left!)  Will the team be able to battle the forces of Hydra this go around?  Is Mockingbird friend or foe?  Has Agent Coulson been working on his dance routine from last week?  All these and more revealed in our latest Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. recap after the jump.

Now that the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier have rippled down to the ABC TV series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., things are moving forward at a breakneck pace.  Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) is trying to rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. while Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) keeps an eye on his sanity, and Skye (Chloe Bennet) is trying to come to terms with the fact that she opened her heart to Agent Ward (Brett Dalton) and he turned out to be HYDRA, while Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) are trying to get back to being Fitz and Simmons.

As part of PaleyFest NY, which is considered the ultimate TV fan festival, co-stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen and Chloe Bennet, along with executive producer Jeph Loeb, talked about how this show evolved, their audition experiences, the incredible journey this show has taken the characters on, the extent of the collaboration to coordinate this show with The Winter Soldier, the actors’ reaction to finding out how everything would tie in, whether Ward might ever get back out into the field, which Marvel characters they’d like to see on the show, the process for deciding which characters they can actually bring on, whether Clark Gregg might ever direct an episode, shooting the May vs. May fight, the chances of Clark Gregg going up against James Spader in Avengers:  Age of Ultron, and whether there might be any connection between the show and the next movie.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

When you don’t watch a show, how much fun can you expect to have at its New York Comic-Con panel?  Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., however, was a blast to attend.  Just like last year, Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb, was on hand to introduce the early screening of Tuesday, October 14th’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode, but this time around, he let Clark Gregg do it with him and when he came out, the crowd went nuts for him.

Tuesday TV Ratings: AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Falls to Series Low; SELFIE Falters in Debut

by     Posted 21 days ago

TV ratings for Tuesday, September 30th are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not doing great.  The second episode of the show’s second season (read Evan’s recap here) garnered a 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 4.54 million viewers, notching a series low for the Marvel show.  On the bright side, there’s always the possibility that it could receive a jolt in viewership after its midseason break following the debut of Agent Carter, but there’s no guarantee that show will be a hit either.
  • Elsewhere on ABC, the series premiere of the awfully-titled Selfie scored a 1.4 rating in the demo and 4.89 million viewers.  Despite the cringe-worthy premise, our own Allison Keene thought the pilot episode was saved by its solid cast.  Those debut numbers on down considerably from the 3.0 rating that The Goldbergs nabbed in its post-S.H.I.E.L.D. series premiere last year.
  • The other ABC shows of the night were Manhattan Love Story with a 1.3 rating and 4.28 million viewers and Forever with a 1.3 rating and 5.6 million viewers.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report, including New Girl, Person of Interest, and more.

Welcome back, true believers!  When last we left our band of wayward agents, the hidden artifact known as the Obelisk had been taken by Avengers-villain, Crusher Creel (aka the Absorbing Man).  The team lost one of their newest members apparently as Lucy Lawless’ Hartlay bit the bullet and was killed in the final minutes of the season premiere, though this is the Marvel universe and resurrections are fair game for any character.  Tonight, we’ll see the return of the mysterious “woman in the flower dress”, Raina, apparently seeking to help the team rather than inhibit them.  Will the team join their old foe in attempting to reclaim the Obelisk?  Will Fitz go even crazier in this episode?  Why oh why didn’t I make a joke about the Absorbing Man not being played by Nick Nolte during the last recap?  All this and more in the recap for the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., “Heavy is the Head”….

Throughout the first season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (available on Blu-ray/DVD on September 9th), audiences were able to see the evolution of Mike Peterson (J. August Richards), an ordinary man who has been given superhuman strength and abilities, into the comic book character Deathlok.  He became something scary and dangerous, but above it all, he’s still a man who only wants to do what’s best for his son.

During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor J. August Richards talked about how being a part of the Marvel universe is a childhood fantasy come to life, that he has over a thousand comic books in his own collection, reuniting with both Joss Whedon and Jeff Bell, what it’s like to be involved with the show’s fandom through social media, how he only originally signed on for the pilot episode with no idea of what was to come, his reaction when he found out that he’d be evolving into Deathlok, that he likes totally relinquishing control and putting yourself in the hands of the writers, where he’d like to see the character go next, who he’d like to see Deathlok go up against and who he’d like to see him team up with, and a stunt mishap that he thinks ended up on the gag reel.  Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
