S.H.I.E.L.D. better start watching their backs because it looks like there's about to be a brand new baddie in town.
Marvel.com exclusively reports that freshman series 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has recently booked Patrick Brennan to play a very significant (not to mention evil) role later this season. The actor will guest star as Marcus Daniels, otherwise known as the famous Marvel villain Blackout.
While precise details about what exactly brings him onto S.H.I.E.L.D.'s radar remain unclear, Brennan does manage to tease a little bit about his character.
"This guy, Marcus Daniels, a.k.a. Blackout, was shrouded in darkness, his soul, everything about him was shrouded in darkness until he comes across this Cello player," Brennan explains to the site. "And the music was the only light that came into his soul, and it gave him hope and it gave him some sense of what light was."
However, fans of the comics should be warned — this version of the infamous supervillain will have slightly different powers, such as having the ability to suck the energy out of anything around him. Nothing to worry about, right?
Fans can look forward to Brennan's debut in Episode 18, along with a second appearance in Episode 19.
Aside from this, his other TV credits include 'The Black Donnellys' as well as stints on 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Crash,' and 'CSI: NY.'
'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' airs on Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.
