Marvel’s ‘Secret Warriors’ Are Coming to ‘Agents of SHIELD’ â€“ and Comic-Con … – Variety
When â€œMarvelâ€™s Agents of SHIELDâ€ returns to ABC this fall, the hit show will venture further into comic book territory byÂ introducing characters inspired by Marvelâ€™sÂ â€œSecret Warriors,â€ Variety can exclusively reveal.
As Marvel fans know, in the comics, the Secret Warriors are a team of superpowered agents assembled by Nick Fury â€” including Daisy â€œQuakeâ€ Johnson (played by Chloe Bennet on the show). These special individuals are drawn from Furyâ€™s Caterpillar initiative (which eagle-eyed viewers may have spotted an easter egg for in the season two finale) â€” made up of people with potential abilities who have remained hidden and thus are less likely to be compromised by their enemies.
Season three of â€œSHIELDâ€ will introduce new friends and foes based onÂ the â€œSecret Warriorsâ€ comic series when it premieres on Sept. 29. In the aftermath of SHIELDâ€™s battle with Jiaying and the Inhumans, Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) will search the world for more powered people and assemble an extraordinary new team to deal with threats unlike the world has ever seen. However, the Agents of SHIELD will soon find out theyâ€™re not the only ones tracking down these new Inhumans.
Since Coulson and his team are already seeking out new recruits, ABC and Marvel are launching their own initiative at San Diego Comic-Con, giving fans a chance to be part of the team. From Thursday, July 9 through Saturday, July 11, SHIELD ambassadors will be roaming the convention to find the most dedicated fans and rewarding them with limited edition â€œSecret Warriorsâ€ pins. You can track the ambassadors on Twitter by following the @AgentsOfSHIELD account.
Fans who find themselves recruited to the â€œSecret Warriorsâ€ at Comic-Con will complete their first mission by posting a photo of themselves wearing the pin to social media using #SHIELDSecretWarriors, after which, â€œMarvelâ€™s Agents of SHIELDâ€ cast members will select some of their favorite photos, which could get posted to the showâ€™s official Twitter page, @AgentsOfSHIELD. (Terms and conditions here.)
More will be revealed about â€œSecret Warriorsâ€ and season three of â€œMAoSâ€ during the â€œMarvel Television Presentsâ€ panel at SDCC on Friday, July 10 from 3:00 PM â€“ 4:15PM in Ballroom 20.
â€œMarvelâ€™s Agents of SHIELDâ€ returns to ABC on Tuesday, September 29 at 9 p.m.
