The ABC party for the Television Critics Association brought additional talent that was not featured on panels during the day. That included producers on Marvel shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter.

Earlier in the day, ABC President of Entertainment Paul Lee spoke about season two of Agent Carter taking Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to Hollywood. Butters and Dingess elaborated on that as well as the new villain Madame Masque, the extended 10 episode order and Peggy moving on from her grief over the loss of Steve Rogers. Read More »

S.H.I.E.L.D. is getting a visit from a big-screen superhero for the very first time. Marvel announced at ABC’s TCA winter press tour that Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander), Thor’s warrior buddy from both of his standalone films, will be making an appearance on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the near future.
This won’t be the TV show’s first run-in with Asgard. The season’s eighth episode, titled “The Well,” was timed to coincide (roughly) with the release of Thor: The Dark World, and centered on the aftermath of events seen in the film. It happens that Alexander’s guest spot also doubles as Thor: The Dark World promotion — the DVD/Blu-ray hits shelves February 25.
