Season 3 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on its way, and with it, the Secret Warriors. But beyond that, we’re getting some news about enemies, Inhumans, and a certain famous character who knows it’s not easy being green (and I don’t mean the Hulk).
The previous season of S.H.I.L.D. introduced us to the Inhumans, although the movie featuring them is still several years away. But the Inhumans served more of a purpose than just setting up the future movie and giving Skye, AKA Daisy Johnson, AKA Quake, her powers, and it looks like they’re here to stay, with the introduction of the Inhuman known as Lash.
Lash appeared in the comics in Inhumans #1, hunting down the “NuHumans” who were born from the Terrigen cloud to determine if they were worthy of their powers or not. His role in the comics was mostly antagonistic, so it’s a safe assumption that the same will be the case on TV. He does have a problem with Inhumans who gain their powers without being proven worthy first, so Skye may be in for some trouble from him, and reports say a spread of Terrigen will bring about the rise of new Inhumans, so Lash’s hands will be full there.
Lash will be played by Matt Willig, a former offensive tackle in the NFL with acting roles as Gregorek in Grimm, Special Agent Simon Cade in NCIS, and Yuri the Gobbler in Chuck.
In further S.H.I.E.L.D. news, we can expect the rise of the Advanced Threat Containment Unit (ATCU) to rival S.H.I.E.L.D., led by a currently unnamed character played by Constance Zimmer. She’ll be joined by Banks (played by Andrew Howard), Lash, and a new Inhuman named Joey (Juan Pablo Raba).
On a less-canon note, Kermit the Frog recently expressed interest in joining S.H.I.E.L.D. After meeting with Ming-Na Wen, who plays Agent Melinda May on the show, he tweeted at her that he’d be willing to join S.H.I.E.L.D.’s ranks.
.@MingNa For Hulk, it’s really NOT easy bein’ green! Yikes!! It was lovely seeing you! Call me if S.H.I.E.L.D. needs a little green agent!

Now we have a new promo featuring Kermit and Coulson (Clark Gregg), along with Randall Park from Fresh Off The Boat, advertising the upcoming fall schedule.
We also recently learned that Kermit and Miss Piggy recently broke up. Could he possibly be trying to protect her from the life of danger he’ll be leading as an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
Probably not, but I look forward to seeing the “Kermit, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.” fanfics that will come from this.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns September 29th on ABC.
