First Look At Bill Paxton As 'John Garrett' On AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

First Look At Bill Paxton As 'John Garrett' On AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Game over man! Yesterday we learned that the Aliens actor would appear in the Marvel series as a cybernetic agent first introduced in Frank Miller's Elektra: Assassin, and you can see him in character as Garrett after the jump.

Paxton is expected to appear in at least 4 episodes later in the year. It'll be interesting to see if they go the cyborg route with Garett - who had most of his body replaced by cybernetic parts by ExTechOp in the pages of Elektra: Assassin. Some theorize that if this is the case, it might somehow tie in to Coulson's resurrection! What do you guys think? Sound off below.

It sucks that he is only going to be featured for four episodes.

There must be a reason they've introduced Garrett over any other SHIELD agent. I'd imagine they're going to go the damaged and rebuilt route. Probably not as extensively as in the funny books. But it may even tie into Age of Ultron.

Wishful thinking.

In the words of Shia Labeouf "He's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs."

Eric Savin never turned into a cyborg in IM3 so I doubt this guy will either.

BaneSmash - 1/14/2014, 8:57 AM
He's such a cool cat! At comic con he reenacted the scene from aliens "Game over Man" it was awesome to hear him do it.

"It sucks that he is only going to be featured for four episodes."

Recurring roles usually lead to being a series regular.

See Manu Bennett aka Slade Wilson from Arrow for reference.

@ RynerLute

Correct but it would be great for the show to have some actual Agents of Shield on a regular basis.
Growup - 1/14/2014, 9:00 AM
Wa already saw this picture three times on this site
Scorpion8125 - 1/14/2014, 9:01 AM
This is great news.

They have to try something.

They need to turn this show into an espionage thriller type show where they are taking on Hydra, AIM. etc., and get away from all this Smallville/Heroes freak of the week type crap.

They need to tie it to CA/TWS and concentrate on political intrigue and hard core espionage.

He will pee in his pants when see big guy like Arnold.
AstonishingArachnid - 1/14/2014, 9:03 AM
Peterson potentially becoming Deathlok, John Garrett, Coulson's resurrection and Ultron could all be related.
aRandomSinisterClone - 1/14/2014, 9:04 AM
can anyone honestly say they enjoy this show? i watch it every week just so i can skip commercials on Brooklyn nine nine.
MercwithMouth - 1/14/2014, 9:04 AM
Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen!

I can't [frick]ing wait!
MercwithMouth - 1/14/2014, 9:06 AM

I can honestly say I [frick]ing love it! I haven't missed a single second all season, and that won't change. I look forward to it every week. I even skip a period or two of my Winnipeg Jets games to watch it

And trust me, when a Canadian skips hockey, it must be worth it.

"Correct but it would be great for the show to have some actual Agents of Shield on a regular basis."

You know, I respect that you still can't jive with the show , but you really sound lame when you say things like this.


These are your traditional field agents. Throw Garret in that category as well.

Just because FitzSimmions and Skye are more tech support/analyst and scientists
doesn't make them any less Agents than the others , if you keep up with this
type of logic when looking at the Team ofc you'll never buy into their contributions.


Full of Science and Analyst level Agents.

People love to bring up Homeland as a comparison of how AoS should be.

What the phuck do you think Carrie is? James Bond? She's a analyst first,
field agent second.
kaijunexus - 1/14/2014, 9:18 AM
That pic just screams "Punisher" to me. I kind of wish Paxton was cast as Frank Castle now...
marantaz - 1/14/2014, 9:19 AM
This guy will lead us to Deathlok. Whoever is going down the Deathlok path had a hand in developing the parts Garrett's equiped with... but he's still thinking for himself, and that's just not good enough. SHIELD policy was to 'keep them human' by fixing what broke, others took the 'make a human killing machine' route, and Fury violated everything to keep Coulson an LMD, which is why the bad guys want him.

AoS is being used to expand the scope of the MCU... as it should be.

Of course, I could be wrong about the specifics, but that is why AoS exists... to grow the universe, and give people exposure to more characters.
marantaz - 1/14/2014, 9:21 AM
And yes, I enjoy this show too. In fact, I've DVR'd every episode.
RorMachine - 1/14/2014, 9:26 AM
Umm, I never saw this pic on here before..just the article revealing that Paxton would join the show and that didn't contain the image. It was obviously deleted for good reason.

Anyway, I also hope Whatisname becomes Deathlock..but I'm not holding my breath.
Joementum - 1/14/2014, 9:31 AM
SHIELD has a destination. Unfortunately, it's gonna be a 9 month journey.

If I had the video editing tools and the time it would be fun to condense the entire season into a 3hr movie.

Simply follow the Coulson and Centipede plotlines and dropped all the other BS.
MsDarkPhoenix - 1/14/2014, 9:37 AM
You know what?? This is just screaming Zodiac to mee! There was a reference at the Agent Carter One-Shot and now they have Garret and probably Von Strucker. This would be really cool!
MercwithMouth - 1/14/2014, 9:43 AM

It was posted yesterday morning. Started a huge flame war, over 200 comments in less than an hour, then just vanished. But definitely, thanks for posting!
AlexanderLykins - 1/14/2014, 9:43 AM
Were not getting any accurate portrayals of any characters on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. guys. I'm sorry but that's just the way it is.
cipher - 1/14/2014, 9:44 AM
AstonishingArachnid - 1/14/2014, 9:45 AM
@TheDarkPhoenix It would explain how they got a hold of the Super Soldier serum sense in Agent Carter it was revealed Zodiac had some variation of it.
CaptShipwreck - 1/14/2014, 9:48 AM
Accurate portrayals according to your opinion
ThomCreed - 1/14/2014, 9:51 AM
@MercwithMouth Winnipeg represent!! I miss Jets games too for this show!
MercwithMouth - 1/14/2014, 9:54 AM

Nice, another Pegger!
Kyos - 1/14/2014, 10:00 AM
This picture was included in the first article on this that got deleted for some reason (still don't remember who posted it), left out for some reason in the second one, but was posted on the first page on the second article's comments. Whatever...

Yeah, looking forward to seeing him on the show! :D
GliderMan - 1/14/2014, 10:13 AM
Bring in Elektra
BaneSmash - 1/14/2014, 10:15 AM
So [frick]en what the article was already posted! I was taken down and now it back up.
ElDarkside - 1/14/2014, 10:20 AM
This is kinda a big deal!! Love this guy and glad he's back on tv. And they can tie his cybernetics with coulsons rewired brain story and maybe create more questions to be not answered... Ha but seriously Paxton is gonna kick some ass, not listen to anyone, smoke cigars and punch people in the face jury cuz he can. I'm looking at you fitz...
