Marvel Adds Four to 'Agent Carter,' Clark Gregg Talks Inhumans on 'Agents of SHIELD'
Marvel's Agent Carter is bulking up.
The sophomore ABC drama has added Wynn Everett, Currie Graham, Reggie Austin and Lotte Verbeek to its cast, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb announced Friday at New York Comic-Con.
Everett will portray Whitney Frost, who in the comics is also known as the villain Madame Masque/Masque; Graham will play Calvin Chadwick, Frost's husband; Austin will play Jason Wilkes, a new character to the Marvel universe; and Verbeek will portray Ana Jarvis, the often-mentioned (but never seen) wife of Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy). Additionally, season one co-stars Dominic Cooper (Howard Stark), Bridget Regan (Dottie Underwood), Enver Gjokaj (Daniel Sousa) and Chad Michael Murray (Jack Thompson) will return for season two.
Though none of the cast was able to make the trek to New York, Loeb shared a clip from season two, in which Jarvis showed a horrified Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) the ins and outs of Howard's date-friendly car.
The series was followed by a mini-panel for Agents of SHIELD. (Which, Loeb boasted, is currently in production on its 50th episode.)
During the Q&A session, Clark Gregg (Coulson) shared that he was "stoked" to learn that Inhumans would be brought into the Agents of SHIELD world.
"The Inhumans represent humans, who contain, without their knowledge [differences in their body]," Gregg said. He noted that "some people want to legislate or … eradicate that." The issue "seems topical to me," he continued.
"We're going to be exploring humanity in the way we look at humans and the way we're dealing with people who are different," Loeb added. But when pressed about whether anyone else on the team might turn out to be Inhuman, he played coy. Said Loeb, "We don't know who or what any one of our team is."
Agents of SHIELD airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on ABC. Agent Carter returns midseason.
