Clark Gregg and J August Richards in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Brings on Deathlok

Deathlok isn’t one you see in any live-action film or television series, but the character is coming to the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” line up this season. J. August Richards will be playing Deathlok. You may remember Richards from the series premiere as Mike Peterson. It seems his strength is of use to the Agents.

There are also details on the upcoming episode: “Transformed into the cybernetic solider against his will, Mike Peterson (Richards) must struggle to find the man in the machine. With a high-tech eye that allows him to see through walls, super strength and increased speed courtesy of a cybernetic leg, will Deathlok fight alongside the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or against them?”

Executive producer Jeffrey Bell commented on the character. “We have been waiting all season for this moment where we can reveal that Mike Peterson’s story arc is an origin story. We’re thrilled to have J. August Richards playing Deathlok and to have our audience enjoy this favorite Marvel character on the show.” As for Richards, he even said it was a dream come true to play a super hero on a television show. It seems that his dreams are coming true after all!
