Earlier today, new information regarding the third season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD was revealed. According to Variety, the new season will be delving deeper into the comics basing new characters on Marvel’s “Secret Warriors.”
The Secret Warriors, in the comics, were a group of superpowered humans assembled by Nick Fury. The members, including Daisy “Quake” Johnson (played by Chloe Bennett on the show,) are drawn from the Caterpillar Initiative that speciliazed in finding people with potential abilities. In the wake of Jiaying’s (Dichen Lachman) battle with SHIELD, season three will focus on Director Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) search for more powered people to create a new remarkable team to fight bigger and badder threats than thought previously possible.
To gear fans up for the new season, ABC and Marvel are following in the path of Director Coulson (Gregg) by launching their own initiative at this years San Diego Comic-Con. SHIELD ambassadors will be roaming the convention (July 8-July 11) seeking out the most dedicated fans and bestowing them with limited edition “Secret Warriors” pins. @AgentsofSHIELD Twitter account will be tracking the ambassadors for fans.
Recruited “Secret Warriors” will be able to finish their first mission at Comic-Con by taking a picture with their pin and posting it to social media using #SHIELDSecretWarriors. Some of the cast members from Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will then pick their favorite photos which may then be posted to the shows official Twitter, @AgentsofSHIELD.
The “Marvel Television Presents” panel at San Diego Comic-Con will reveal more information about the third season of Agents of SHIELD as well as the “Secret Warriors.” The panel will take place Friday, July 10 from 3:00 PM – 4:15PM in Ballroom 20.
