Aliens and Edge of Tomorrow actor Bill Paxton is coming to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as John Garrett, an agent who was given cybernetic enhancements to safe his life after a battle with Elektra. Below, you’ll find a first look at Paxton in the series, although it’s unknown how similar he’ll be to his comic book counterpart.
Meanwhile, we also have a promo for the next episode of the ABC series (which airs on February 4th), and in it you’ll see a cameo from the man who created/co-created the majority of Marvel’s comic book characters, Stan “The Man” Lee! Even those of you who don’t read comic books will more than likely recognise the legendary personality from his brief – yet extremely memorable – appearances in everything from The Amazing Spider-Man to The Avengers.
There’s currently no word on when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return to Channel 4 in the UK (each new episode aired just a few days after the US last year), although there has been speculation that the second half of season one will be shown from March on E4.
