As part of the TCA Press Tour, we were invited out to the super-secret filming location for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., to discuss new characters, exciting upcoming storylines, and possibilities for the remainder of the season, which returns to ABC with new episodes on February 4th.  While there, we got to preview the already announced Stan Lee cameo and get glimpses of Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) battling Asgard villain Lorelei (played by Elena Satine), Mike Peterson’s (J. August Richards) transformation to Deathlok, and the introduction of Agent John Garret (Bill Paxton).  If those clips were any indication, things are about to get bigger, more explosive and even more connected to the Marvel universe.

While onboard the CXD 23 Airborne Mobile Command Station, executive producers Jeph Loeb and Jeffrey Bell talked about the velocity of their storytelling and why the show has been a slower burn, how they view the first half of the season as the first hour of a movie, that they wanted to make viewers care about these characters above everything else, how they approached developing Deathlok, whether something from the show could cross over to the films, how they put the storytelling first, and that they try to get something funny, sad, wondrous and beautiful into every episode.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers

In an effort to strengthen the connection between their television and film properties, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature Thor: The Dark World star Jaimie Alexander in an upcoming episode.  Playing the role of Asgardian warrior Lady Sif, it’s unknown at this time just what mission will bring her to Midgard, unless it’s to advertise the arrival of the Thor sequel on Blu-ray and DVD.  She may be tempted to bring a message to Thor himself, or possibly just to give an Asgardian side eye to Jane Foster, but it’s doubtful that either Chris Hemsworth or Natalie Portman will make an appearance.  The show does have some other high-profile additions lined up, however.  Hit the jump for more.
