The Season 2 premiere of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. just got a bit more interesting, as Marvel has unveiled the first look at Brian Patrick Wade as Crusher Creel, better known in the comics as Absorbing Man.
Marvel posted an official announcement on its site Thursday and posted a photo of the Generation Kill and Teen Wolf star. "With his ability to absorb the properties of anything he touches, Creel will put Coulson and his team through their paces when their second season kicks off...but you'll have to wait until then to see how their battle turns out!" Marvel said.
This announcement also squashes the rumors and speculation surrounding the Kree, the blue-skinned aliens that played such a large role in Guardians of the Galaxy. Recall that much of the mystery in Season 1 revolved around Phil Coulson's (Clark Gregg) resurrection after Loki (Tom Hiddleston) killed him in The Avengers. When Coulson did find answers, all he found were more questions. The serum that helped bring him back to life came from a deceased or comatose blue, humanoid creature that many fans believed was a Kree, though the show did not confirm this on or off screen.
A recent video that features some behind-the-scenes footage of Season 2 shows Coulson and Skye (Chloe Bennet) together, but it also provides a look at a muscular man with a blue arm. Presumably, this is the blue creature we saw in the first season, and it looks like the makeup department is applying the blue paint. Check it out for yourself here.
