Is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. bringing on a costumed hero?

At Marvel TV’s San Diego Comic-Con panel on Friday, a special video featuring not one but two Patton Oswalts (as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Billy and ??? Koenig) announced that Barbara Morse – aka costumed Marvel comics hero Mockingbird – was calling for Director Coulson. “She just wanted to say that if he needs her, she’s in,” declared one the Koenigs.

Furthermore, Dollhouse vet Reed Diamond will guest-star as Daniel Whitehall, “one of our Hydra baddies early on [in the season],” executive producer Jed Whedon revealed.

Other news from the Marvel TV panel concerned the midseason ABC series Marvel’s Agent Carter:

TAKING THE REINS | Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo will direct second and third episodes of Agent Carter, it was announced. Meanwhile, Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnson wants to helm the fourth episode, if his schedule allows. The upcoming 1946-set series will follow the adventures of Peggy Carter as viewers “see the cost psychologically and emotionally on someone who has to take on such extreme pressure in her life…and still have to hold it together,” star Hayley Atwell, who created the role in the Marvel One-Shot featurette, previewed.

GIRL POWER | Showrunner Michele Fazekas had this to say about whether other female characters will populate Agent Carter‘s male-heavy world: “We hope so. We actually have plans we couldn’t disclose to you. … There are other women in that world, too, who are just as powerful, both good and bad, who we hope to see.”

A STARK CAMEO | Will Dominic Cooper reprise his Marvel One-Shot role as Howard Stark aka Tony’s pop? “That would be fantastic if that could happen,” Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb replied.

    Mockingbird is a great character to add if they want to keep in mind when trying to tie in the movies with the show. Since she has close ties with Hawkeye in the comics.

  2. Ray says:

    Yes! I’ve been praying that they would add Bobbi. She’s a perfect fit. No powers, but badass, canon character already connected to SHIELD, and not in the movies.

    • Cideric Rhyes says:

      Actually Mockingbird does have powers in the comics, she took a variation of the super solider serum. I would love to see Mockingbird and Simmons have bio nerd show down as well as have Mockingbird interact with Hawkeye.

      • Ray says:

        Oh I know she eventually took the variation of the super soldier serum, but that was semi-recently. I meant originally. Thanks though. :)

  3. I’ve been hoping for Bobbie and Jessica Drew to show up on the show since the pilot.

  4. Tasha says:

    There is no evidence of adding Mockingbird -just a reference. Let’s wait until there is casting for the role. Last season, Maria Hill makes a reference of Man-Thing and no one expects that character to show up. Seriously, why are we celebrating something that has yet to happen.

  5. Dj says:

    Mockingbird would be the perfect addition. She is a SHIELD agent and a superhero without powers. I hope Alona Tal plays her.

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Great scoop from both shows panels. Exciting Mockingbird will be on show.

  7. Eo says:

    Mockingbird sounds like a great addition. My vote is that they cast Yvonne Strahovski.

    • Tater says:

      I too was going to suggest Yvonne, Marvel need to grab her up for either MockingBird or Ms. Marvel….. If they don’t soon I hope DC picks her up for Black Canary.
