ABC has released new pictures and TV spots for Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s the first update we’ve had since we saw the three-minute trailer back in May. The biggest reveal is that Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) from The Avengers has been added to the cast, as seen in the picture above and one below.
We also catch a hint at what S.H.I.E.L.D.’s goal is. Agent Coulson — who survived the whole “getting killed” thing — speaks of a newly discovered superhero played by J. August Richards, “The world will want to exploit him. He’s going to need some help.” The first thing they can help him with is getting cooler superpowers than jumping out of windows. If jumping out of a window makes somebody a hero, you can call my cousin Seth “Superman”. (R.I.P. Seth)
