Deathlok has come to “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
A classic Marvel Comics icon who is celebrating his 40th anniversary this year, Deathlok will be brought to live-action life for first time ever on the all-new episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” premiering Tuesday, February 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
Transformed into the cybernetic solider against his will, Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) must struggle to find the man in the machine. With a high-tech eye that allows him to see through walls, super strength and increased speed courtesy of a cybernetic leg, will Deathlok fight alongside the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or against them?
"We have been waiting all season for this moment where we can reveal that Mike Peterson’s story arc is an origin story," said Executive Producer Jeffrey Bell. "We’re thrilled to have J. August Richards playing Deathlok and to have our audience enjoy this favorite Marvel character on the show."
"If you would have asked when I was nine-years old what I wanted to be, I would have said a super hero and I’m so excited to be one now as an adult on TV!" added J. August Richards. "It’s a dream come true."
While that’s all we can reveal at the moment, True Believers, stay tuned to Marvel.com for more updates and follow @AgentsofSHIELD on Twitter and like "Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." on Facebook for all the latest news!
