Marvel’s ‘Agents of SHIELD’ And ‘Agent Carter’ Are Headed To Comic-Con
Marvel Studios might be absent from Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con, but Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter will be hosting a joint event in Ballroom 20.
Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD At Comic-Con 2015
Marvel’s two live-action television shows will hit Comic-Con during the “Marvel Television Presents” panel on Friday, July 10 from 3 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. in Ballroom 20. Head of Marvel television Jeph Loeb will be present, and will tease the return of both Agents of SHIELD, which will premiere its third season in September, and Agent Carter, which just got picked up for season 2.
Agents of SHIELD stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Brett Dalton, Ian De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstrige are expected to attend alongside new series regulars Nick Blood, Adrianne Palicki, Henry Simmons and Luke Mitchell. Wen is also set to appear at TV Guide’s “Fan Favorites” panel alongside David Anders (iZombie), Yvette Nicole Brown (The Odd Couple), Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), Eliza Taylor (The 100) and Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones).
Luke Mitchell joined Agents of SHIELD in season 2 as Lincoln Campbell, an inhuman who befriends Skye (Bennet). Mitchell was recently announced to be joining the show as a full-time series regular, which could play into the expectation that season 3 will incorporate Secret Warriors. Hopefully, Mitchell will be on hand during Marvel’s Television panel to reveal how he fits into the Secret Warriors.

The panel will also hopefully boost the profile of ABC’s Agent Carter, which earned relatively low ratings during its freshman season and was almost cancelled by the network. Longtime fan favorite, Hayley Atwell, who plays Carter, will be in attendance, as will James D’Arcy, who stars as Jarvis. It’s unclear whether other cast members will be in attendance at the fan convention, mostly because the official return cast has not yet been confirmed. So far, Atwell, D’Arcy and Enver Gjokaj have all announced their return to the show, but co-stars Chad Micheal Murray, Bridget Regan and Lyndsy Fonseca have yet to finalize their contracts.
In celebration of Agent Carter, Marvel unveiled a limited edition poster that will be available at the Marvel booth (#2329) at Comic Con while supplies last from Thursday-Sunday.
