A classic Marvel Comics icon who is celebrating his 40th anniversary this year, Deathlok will be brought to live-action life for first time ever on the all-new episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." premiering Tuesday, February 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.

J. August Richards as Mike Peterson in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Transformed into the cybernetic solider against his will, Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) must struggle to find the man in the machine. With a high-tech eye that allows him to see through walls, super strength and increased speed courtesy of a cybernetic leg, will Deathlok fight alongside the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or against them?

"We have been waiting all season for this moment where we can reveal that Mike Peterson's story arc is an origin story," said Executive Producer Jeffrey Bell. "We're thrilled to have J. August Richards playing Deathlok and to have our audience enjoy this favorite Marvel character on the show."

"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!" added J. August Richards. "It's a dream come true."

Yeah, pretty obvious. That's cool.
DEVLIN712 - 1/23/2014, 4:16 PM
Pretty clear from the start, still pretty exciting though
Interestein - 1/23/2014, 4:19 PM
I said in the beggining, this show will start out mediocre, and eventually get better by Season 2, like ARROW.
Interestein - 1/23/2014, 4:20 PM
I love Deathlok though, might tune in
GoldenOne33 - 1/23/2014, 4:23 PM
Whoa! Hopefully Deathlok makes it to screen someday.or Netflix
AgentEX - 1/23/2014, 4:24 PM
Knew it. Also, Lorelei is the younger sister of a certain Thor character. The Enchantress.
Kurne - 1/23/2014, 4:27 PM
*Sigh* I don't want Sif on the show... It'll be like terrible cosplay next to a bunch of people in suits

Been liking the show a lot and they way they are scaling it up is making it even sweeter.
ATrueHero1987 - 1/23/2014, 4:38 PM
OHHH HELLLL YESSS!!!!
SpideyQuad - 1/23/2014, 4:39 PM
Yeah I knew right from the first episode that Peterson was going to end up as the cyborg deathlok, If anything the show has been that predictable (eyes rolling).
jlabatman - 1/23/2014, 4:39 PM
Wow, was hoping to see Lorelai on the big screen in the next Thor, but this will do!
Objectivelybiased - 1/23/2014, 4:39 PM
Nice to see headway is being made on it feeling like it actually exists in the MCU. As a fan of Richards since his Angel days this can only mean great things for him and more likely than not a promotion to series regular if there is a season 2 ...which, whether the ratings suck or not, will most likely happen. We have this show until at least Avengers 2 ...probably longer. Hopefully now Coulson's transformation leads to what I think it leads to.

@spideyquad

Lol sure u did
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 4:41 PM
yeah,i have been really liking this show too, the last few episodes have been great imo and i like the addition of deathlok and sif coming to the show
kevberg - 1/23/2014, 4:41 PM
IF its a cool design...then HELL YEAH. I dont like them changing who DEATHLOK is, but it'd be cool to see what they do with him.

IT BETTER BE BADASS.


Isnt Lorelei the ENCHANTRESS' name?
kevberg - 1/23/2014, 4:42 PM
oops.. fantomex got it correct!
JossWeedOnMe - 1/23/2014, 4:43 PM
How cheap will that look.... Can't see sifilus's acting improving either
SpideyQuad - 1/23/2014, 4:43 PM
JoJo, it's called sarcasm :-) it doesn't work as well when you have to explain that part.
Inhuman - 1/23/2014, 4:44 PM
As soon as I saw how Mike Peterson looked at the end of the episode, I was like thats Deathlok written all over him. But before that when Netflix announced the 4 shows, I wrote on one of these boards if they were gonna do another set of shows once Defenders is done, Deathlok would be an awesome show to produce. Guess my prediction was sort of right =D
UltimateNullifier - 1/23/2014, 4:44 PM
@kevberg - Enchantress's name is Amora. Lorelei is her younger sister.
JoJo1982 - 1/23/2014, 4:45 PM
And having Enchantress' sister could only mean, Enchantress herself will pop up in Thor 3
Grimfoe - 1/23/2014, 4:46 PM
All this is good news. Should make for good TV. Lorelei was a very good character. I had hoped we'd see more second tier characters on the show.

Seems to be developing well.
JoJo1982 - 1/23/2014, 4:47 PM
@spideyquad

Lol my bad, I thought u was going to be one of those "I knew it all along" ppl
SpideyQuad - 1/23/2014, 4:47 PM
Seriously, not to call anybody out but, after seeing Peterson in (pieces) how could you not think about Marvels famous cyborg?

I think what really needs saying is how people are already crying about it, predicting the worst without seeing first. The number one bitch has been "no superheroes". Now that you're getting one some are crying that it will look cheap! Seriously people don't shoot think before you write about how stupid you're going to look?
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 4:48 PM
they said the seond half would be more" Marvel" and they werent kidding
McNyagano - 1/23/2014, 4:48 PM
@JoJo1982

"And having Enchantress' sister could only mean, Enchantress herself will pop up in Thor 3"


I actually agree with you. We're going to see Enchantress in Thor 3. She's long over-due now imo. Unless Thor 3 is Ragnok, that could be epic!!
SpideyQuad - 1/23/2014, 4:48 PM
No problem my friend, I was just getting a dig in at exactly those people!
UltimateNullifier - 1/23/2014, 4:49 PM
Charlize Theron for Amora the Enchantress, Nathan Jones for Skurge the Executioner...pretty please.
m0th3r - 1/23/2014, 4:49 PM
She isnt the Enchantress..she is her Sister....Thor 3 anyone?
Omarvls - 1/23/2014, 4:51 PM
Show HAS gotten better but for me
BRING DAREDEVIL NETFLIX
SpideyQuad - 1/23/2014, 4:51 PM
MCNY, And Hopefully Along with The Executioner! (I Actually Was Hoping To See Them Both In Avengers 2 guess that's not happening)
ezio619 - 1/23/2014, 4:51 PM
also ,i want to give massive kudos to Clark Gregg ,that guy is a great actor, especially the last two episodes, he has been kicking ass and the guy is a true geek like us, he owned jim starlin Warlock comics, he wants to direct an episode of the iron fist series on netflix. just a cool dude
McNyagano - 1/23/2014, 4:52 PM
Is he going to look like this...



Or like this.....
