Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns after its midseason hiatus! In the trailer we see the government continue their unease of increasing Inhuman appearances. New heroes emerge as the Secret Warriors grow in numbers. One such hero is Elena Rodriguez, also known as the speedster Slingshot, played by Natalia Cordova-Buckley. Also revealed is a new villain seemingly able to induce paralysis via eye contact, Absorbing Man, and the zombified return of Grant Ward.
Enjoy the trailer!
Spoiler warning ahead!
In addition, Grant has been confirmed to be a preexisting comic book villain.
In a recent interview, Elizabeth Henstridge (Agent Simmons) disclosed that Ward has become the supervillain Hive. Hive is a Hydra creation who retains all the memories of people he’s killed. He was introduced in Jonathan Hickman’s run of Secret Warriors. What this means for the rest of the team and Grant is still unknown. Seeing as the organism killed Simmons’ love interest, does that mean Grant has his memories too?
