Hello true believers! Back in January, it was announced that J. August Richards (Deathlok) would be appearing Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) this March, joining Ann Foley and Edward James Olmos as guests associated with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ann Foley is a costume designer for the show and Edward James Olmos had a guest run in the beginning of season 2 as Robert Gonzales, the leader of a second S.H.I.E.L.D. This week, even bigger news broke as Chicago native Chloe Bennet or as fans know her, Daisy Johnson, was announced as a guest. Bennet is scheduled to appear Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20.
I couldn’t have been more excited hearing this announcement. It’s great to see S.H.I.E.L.D. being featured so prominently in a con setting, especially in its third season on television. Bennet plays a great character in Daisy who has the power to create earthquakes and the skill to hack computers. Aside from S.H.I.E.L.D. she had a seven episode run on fellow ABC show Nashville currently starring Hayden Panettierre and formerly starring fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. cast member, Powers Boothe. What’cha Reading will be in the Windy City covering the entirety of C2E2 which runs from Friday, March 18 to Sunday, March 20. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for more cast announcements from the show.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, March 8 at 9pm on ABC. Check your local listings.
