Deathlok Will Appear on ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

By January 24, 2014

When actor J. August Richards appeared in the pilot of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, was held captive by Centipede, and then we got no further development to his storyline (other than learning his name is Mike Peterson), fans were left to wonder “WTF?”

Well, wonder no more!


It’s been revealed that Mike Peterson is indeed returning to S.H.I.E.L.D. as Deathlok, a cyber soldier equipped with a high-tech eye, super speed and strength, and other assorted goodies.

On the subject of Deathlok joining “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, exec producer Jeffrey Bell said, “We have been waiting all season for this moment where we can reveal that Mike Peterson’s story arc is an origin story. We’re thrilled to have J. August Richards playing Deathlok and to have our audience enjoy this favorite Marvel character on the show.”

But he’s obviously not the only one who’s super stoked about Deathlok’s introduction. J. August Richards’ dream of being a superhero has finally been fulfilled and BOY, what a great superhero to be!

“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. It’s a dream come true.”

As someone who’s not quite as immersed in Marvel lore (but I’m learning more EVERY DAY), I’m super excited! And just like Josh Wigler from, I too wonder where we go from here as far as other big reveals go in the S.H.I.E.L.D. family.

I guess we’ll find out when Mike Peterson a.k.a. Deathlok returns to “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” this February 4th, which also happens to be my birthday (hint hint, y’all)!!!

    I didn`t expect more then that. S.H.I.E.L.D. is not too bad for time pass. Well, if you have a lot of time and you don`t have anything else then you could try it.Otherwise make a different choice.
