'Agents of SHIELD' gag reel: It takes a few takes to save the world

AGENTS-SHIELD-BLOOPERS.jpg

Last summer at Comic-Con, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. were an unproven bunch tasked with spreading Marvel’s Avengers universe to television. After an up and down first season that alternately fascinated and frustrated viewers, the show got picked up by ABC in May for a second season. C’mon, who was really worried that they brought Agent Phil Coulsen back to life just to pull the plug after 22 episodes?

Today—just one day after production began on season 2—the S.H.I.E.L.D. gang was back together in San Diego for the show’s panel to tease upcoming episodes and discuss the first-season Blu-ray. Reflecting on the first season, they played the gag reel that is one of the bonus features on the disc release, due Sept. 9. READ FULL STORY

J. August Richards talks 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' and who Deathlok should fight

J. August Richards didn’t know he was going to be a superhero. At EW‘s Comic-Con Hideout, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actor sat down with Darren Franich to talk about how surprised he was when he found out his character was being transformed into the unstoppable cyborg Deathlok. A big comics fan, Richards also engages in the grand tradition of imagining what comic-book villain would make for his dream Deathlok fight scene. It’s a doozy. READ FULL STORY

Lucy Lawless will guest star on 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

After Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s first season ended with the unforgettable (and very cryptic) image of Agent Coulson waking up in the middle of the night to scribble some mysterious symbols on the wall, fans have been dying to know what season two will hold. And as far as Coulson is concerned, the jury’s still out. However, there’s at least one new person in town: EW has confirmed that Lucy Lawless will guest star on the second season.

What her role is and how long she’ll stick around is, as most things are, classified. But based on her past as Xena, it’s likely she could give Agent May a run for her money on the battlefield.

TV Guide first reported the news.

'Agents of SHIELD' postmortem: Jeff Bell and Jeph Loeb on what to expect for season 2

[SPOILER ALERT: The following article contains spoilers for the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season finale.]

Now that was a finale.

Are you recovered, agents? Have you had enough time to get some theories together? Are you asking yourself how the heck you’re going to wait until fall? (Or at least until Comic-Con, where we’ll hopefully get some new footage and insight about next season?) If you’re anything like me, I’m betting that you have questions. Questions that need answers. And although we can’t divulge much, we thought that it might be best to let the experts — S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeff Bell and executive producer Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television — share their thoughts. Read on for more. (And yes, although not finale related, we did ask about Buddy the Dog. In true Marvel fashion, both Bell and Loeb were coy about confirmation of his survival…but let’s just say that I choose to believe he’s living a long, happy life.)

'Agents of SHIELD': Bill Paxton previews season finale, teases Garrett's 'master plan'

When Bill Paxton appeared on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Coulson’s old friend and Ward’s original S.O., I immediately mentioned that I hoped he would find a way to recur regularly. Thankfully, the showrunners seemed to share my sentiment, allowing Paxton to fold into the cast for the last third of the season not only as the “Big Bad” but also as someone with prominent ties to the show’s most significant plot lines.

In advance of tonight’s season finale, we spoke with Paxton about what we could expect from Garrett now that he’s finally achieved his goal of securing miracle drug GH-325 — and how those newfound abilities might change his motivation all together.

'Agents of SHIELD': Season finale poster art teases 'beginning of the end' -- EXCLUSIVE

MARVEL-AOS-POSTER.jpg

The title of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season finale is “Beginning Of The End”: thus, it’s only fitting that the final piece of art in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level Seven series should take us back to the start, with a design that replicates the way we were introduced to our team in the initial series poster.

'Agents of SHIELD': Clark Gregg teases Agent Coulson's possible revenge

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has thrown viewers some pretty big head-spinning twists and turns lately — and while team bonds have fallen apart and traitors have come forward, we’ve seen it all reflected in the glue that holds everyone together: Agent Phil Coulson. It’s been an emotional few weeks watching Coulson come to terms with the fact that S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as his trust, has been compromised. But last week’s episode seemed to indicate a turning point…so are we finally going to get to see Coulson fight back for an organization that he still believes in?

“Yes,” promised Clark Gregg when he stopped by our office to chat earlier today. “In as much as there is one.”

With the first season of S.H.I.E.L.D. coming to an end next week and two very intensive episodes on the horizon, Gregg opened up about what we can expect from our beloved team. He also shared some thoughts about the experience of being able to bring Coulson to life on a weekly basis — something that he calls “the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me.” READ FULL STORY

'Agents of SHIELD': Penultimate art offers insight into Ward's past -- EXCLUSIVE

One season, 20 episodes, and a lot of questions later, next week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will finally answer something that’s been on our minds since that game-changing reveal a few weeks ago: What’s the deal with Grant Ward?

“Ragtag” reveals the story behind the man turned Hydra, and during the course of the hour, we’ll learn exactly how Garrett first recruited him and how he was trained. And if that’s not enough, Coulson’s team will finally rendezvous with Garrett and his group of Hydra baddies. It’s all part of setting the stage for what promises to be an exciting, explosive, and huge season finale on May 13. READ FULL STORY

'Agents of SHIELD': J. August Richards previews Deathlok's return

When J. August Richards appeared in the pilot of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Mike Peterson, a single dad harboring some pretty awesome powers, viewers hoped that his presence would translate to a lasting spot on the show’s guest star roster. And Richards himself hoped for the same.

“I didn’t even know if I was gonna come back at all,” the actor admits with a laugh. “Everything is top secret, as you know. I feel like sometimes I find things out at the same time the audience does. But I like it that way, because it forces me to be more honest.”

While we haven’t seen much of Mike lately, that will change during tonight’s episode. In “Nothing Personal,” Peterson — otherwise known as Deathlok — returns to set the stage for the end of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s first season. EW spoke with Richards to find out what we can expect — and what sets this version of Deathlok apart.

'Agents of SHIELD': Newest art teases Deathlok return as Skye and Ward take center stage -- EXCLUSIVE

To say that this week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. left our team in disarray would be an understatement. May has abandoned ship, literally, apparently on a mission to seek out Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill (with a little help from her mom). Coulson, Trip, Fitz and Simmons have returned from a mission to find their plane gone. And Skye and Ward are currently on a mission of their own, one that involves Ward’s determination to crack that hard drive once and for all.

As we speed towards the last hours of the season, it’s no secret that things are going to get even more intense. The April 29 episode “Nothing Personal” includes not only Hill’s return, but also the return of Mike Peterson’s Deathlok (J. August Richards). Aside from being significant in Skye and Ward’s journey, the Marvel villain will play a major role throughout the end of the season.

'Agents of SHIELD': A cellist and a villain take center stage in latest art -- EXCLUSIVE

agents-of-shield-01.jpg

“The cellist” — it was meant to be a throwaway line, a small piece of insight into Agent Phil Coulson as he took more of a center-stage role in Marvel’s The Avengers. Instead, viewers latched onto the idea that their fan favorite might have a bit of a mysterious love life…and ever since, speculation has swirled over if we would ever hear more.

With the idea becoming a reality in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s 19th episode “The Only Light In The Darkness” (airing April 22 at 8pm ET), it’s no surprise that the third piece of art in Marvel’s groundbreaking initiative, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level Seven,” focuses on S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s protagonist and his famed lady love. This week’s gorgeous rendering was designed by Pascal Campion, an accomplished artist and animator. In addition to teasing the introduction of Audrey (Amy Acker), it also subtly hints at the villain in next week’s outing — none other than Marcus Daniels, aka “Blackout.”

See what executive producer Jeff Bell has to say about this week’s art and its tie in to next week’s episode in EW’s weekly conversation below. As a reminder, this art — as well as all future art in the series — will be available for purchase as a limited edition high quality print exclusively through MarvelStore.com starting at 1am PST tomorrow.
