Secret Warriors Come To "SHIELD"
The Secret Warriors, a team of superpowered agents assembled by Nick Fury in the Marvel comics, are coming to ABC's "Agents of SHIELD".
Variety reports that the show will introduce characters inspired by the "Secret Warriors" line-up in the upcoming third season.
In the comic, these individuals are drawn from Fury's Caterpillar initiative which is made up of people with potential abilities who have remained hidden and so are less likely to be compromised by their enemies.
In the show, Coulson (Clark Gregg) will search the world for more powered people and assemble this extraordinary new team to deal with new threats. However he soon realizes he's not the only ones tracking down these new Inhumans.
ABC and Marvel will do a promotional tie in at Comic Con in two weeks time where SHIELD ambassadors will be roaming the convention to reward the most dedicated fans with limited edition 'Secret Warriors' pins.

Marvel's Mockingbird Series Starring Adrianne Palicki Lands ABC Pilot Order
Despite putting a halt on the "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" spinoff, which was proposed earlier this year, ABC is closing in on a deal to order a pilot for a project Centered around Mockingbird, Variety has learned exclusively.
Titled "Marvel's Most Wanted," the drama will focus on popular "SHIELD" characters Adrianne Palicki's Bobbi Morse (also known as Mockingbird) and Nick Blood's Lance Hunter. The two actors will topline the pilot and prospective series.
"SHIELD" producers Jeffrey Bell and Paul Zbyszewski co-created the project for Marvel and ABC Studios, co-writing the pilot. They will serve as showrunners and exec producers together with Marvel's head of television Jeph Loeb also exec producing.
Insiders say the series is not a spinoff, per se, but rather an entirely new project solely focused on the two characters to continue their story. Though plot details are scarce at this point, "Marvel's Most Wanted" will follow the pair and their adventures together.
At this time, ABC has not made any decisions regarding premiere date or a path of introduction, such as introducing the new show as a planted episode during "SHIELD."
But with "SHIELD" coming back for Season 3, in addition to "Agent Carter" returning for Season 2, there's still a large Marvel appetite at ABC. Also in the works at the network, is a top-secret Marvel project helmed by "American Crime" creator John Ridley.

When Does Your Favorite Comic Book TV Show Come Back?
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Season Three Begins: September 29, 2015
Where Last Season Left Off: With SHIELD officially reformed, Coulson lost a hand but won the war against a rogue faction of Inhumans led by Skye's mother. A mysterious Kree weapon caused Simmons to disappear right after she hinted that she might be romantically interested in Fitz. Skye (now calling herself Daisy Johnson) joined a TV version of Secret Warriors and Ward took over Hydra after vowing revenge on the organization for the death of his lover Agent 33.
What Might Happen This Season: SHIELD will fight on against both Hydra and a new government team called the Advanced Threat Containment Unit, which is seeking out Inhumans and other powered humans. They'll also have to deal with Lash, an Inhuman who's gathering his own team for unknown purposes.
Marvel's Agent Carter
Season Two Begins: ABC has yet to announce a premiere date, but the show should still replace Marvel's Agents of SHIELD during that show's winter break.
Where Last Season Left Off: Agent Carter and her SSR colleagues stop Leviathan's plans to spray New York City with a gas that causes homicidal psychosis. While jerkwad Agent Thompson gets all the glory, Agent Sousa asks Peggy out, which she politely declines. Also, Howard Stark gives Peggy and her friend Angie one of their homes as repayment for all of Carter's help clearing his name from bogus weapons trafficking charges.
What Might Happen This Season: Peggy, Agent Sousa and Jarvis are all heading to Los Angeles to fight Madam Masque. The Darkforce, an energy source from the comics, will also play a role in the season somehow. We will also get some teases about Agent Carter's past, a new romantic interest or two and a rematch against 1940s Black Widow Dottie Underwood.

Agent Carter Season 2: Fox UK Pick Up Broadcast Rights
Having found success showing Agent Carter season 1 in the UK, Fox has decided to screen season 2 as well.
When the first season of Agent Carter came out in America, we UK residents had no way of watching it. Months later, Fox UK came to our rescue to screen the show, finally bringing that British super spy to British shores, albeit a little late.
Fox found decent success - 'a consolidated audience of 900k viewers a week, 'according to the press bumf - and have decided to continue their alliance with Agent Carter - they'll show season 2 in the UK, too.
Jeff Ford, Managing Director of Fox International Channels UK, said that: "Marvel's Agent Carter was a ratings smash for Fox UK, with a million people tuning in to Peggy Carter's adventures on launch."
"We're thrilled to bring the season 2 premiere to UK fans and can't wait to see what's in-store for the feisty and fearless heroine,"he added.
There's no word on a premiere date yet, but it won't be until Christmas time at the earliest - the show, extended to 10 episodes this time - will slot again into the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. midseason break.

Agent Carter Casts Whitney Frost And More Season 2 Additions
When Agent Carter heads to Hollywood, Peggy (Hayley Atwell) will be meeting new friends and foes - and maybe finding a new love interest in the process.
Wynn Everett, Currie Graham, Lotte Verbeek and Reggie Austin have all joined the cast of Agent Carter for season 2, EW has learned. Marvel is expected to announce the new additions at New York Comic-Con on Friday.
Everett (The Newsroom) will play Whitney Frost, otherwise known in the Marvel Universe as Madame Masque. On the show, Frost is a Hollywood actress and brilliant inventor. In the comics, the villain first appeared in Tales of Suspense #98 before becoming Madame Masque a year later in Iron Man #17.
Meanwhile, Graham (Raising the Bar) will play Frost's husband, Calvin Chadwick, a high-powered businessman. "We knew we needed an actor versatile enough to go head-to-head with both Hayley and Wynn, and Currie Graham is one of those actors who can truly do anything," the executive producers say."He brings a grounded, human quality to Calvin Chadwick, a complex character who lives at the center of Season 2's intrigue."
Verbeek (Outlander) will play Ana Jarvis, the free-spirited wife of Edwin Jarvis (James D'Arcy), who immediately befriends Peggy and helps her adjust to life in Los Angeles. "For a character fans love as much as Jarvis, we had to find him a partner who would be equally beloved,"Marvel's Jeph Loeb says. "Lotte brings ease, sincerity and warmth to the role that's just perfect."
Austin (Devious Maids) will play Jason Wilkes, a quirky, yet charismatic scientist who instantly charms Peggy - and potentially becomes her new love interest? "We were impressed by Reggie as soon as we met with him, "Loeb says. "He has a unique ability to be handsome and charming while also being extremely accessible. We knew he could portray a character whom both audiences and Peggy would love."
Additionally, Dominic Cooper and Bridget Regan will reprise their roles as Howard Stark and Dottie Underwood. Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjokaj are also slated to return alongside Atwell and D'Arcy in Season 2. Lyndsy Fonseca, who portrayed Angie Martinelli, could still potentially return but there's no official word yet. Until then, Fonseca has another gig.
Marvel's Agent Carter will return midseason on ABC.
