While the first two episodes of Agents of SHIELD have been entertaining, the lack of any Marvel characters or superpowered baddies has left the show devoid of a certain amount of tension. All that is to change in the upcoming episode, which will feature Graviton, whose powers are as awesome as his name. The promo gives you a tease of the CGI-laden action that will take place in the episode.
Here’s the synopsis of the episode, which is titled The Asset:
When the brilliant scientist, Dr. Franklin Hall, is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in–pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down.
Ian Hart (Professor Quirrell from the Harry Potter films) will be playing Dr. Hall. From the promo it seems he’ll already have the powers in the episode. It’ll be interesting to see if he’ll be wearing a costume. The show shares its universe with the Marvel movies, but we’ve yet to see any costumed heroes/villains in the show.
