Ever heard of a Marvel Comics character named Bakshi? Me neither, but that's who British actor Simon Kassianides will be playing in the second season of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. According to Deadline it's be a major recurring role, and Bakshi is a "confident right-hand man who’s not afraid to do the dirty work." The site don't mention if that's good guy or bad guy dirty work, but based on the wording I'd say it's a safe bet it's the latter. Kassianides has previously appeared in the likes if Quantum Of Solace and tv's Burn Notice. Season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres Sept, 23.

TheRealRemyLebeau - 7/29/2014, 9:55 PM
Hey how come nobody has posted the video of jeph loeb confirming Deathlok's return and receiving upgrades? I thought it was news. *shrugs*
MrBlackjack - 7/29/2014, 10:01 PM
Sid's shitty grammar gave the site cancer.
Crabnado - 7/29/2014, 10:05 PM
RobertLiefeld's ****ing finally crashed the site, huh?

DrDoom - 7/29/2014, 10:30 PM
Looks like the site is all good again.

:D

As far as I'm concerned...there is only one Bakshi.






...wait, did you say Bakshi or Balki?

If you said Bakshi, then I guess that Ralph guy.

[frick]ING BAKSHI????? WTF???

[frick] this, why dosent Marvel let them use some established no-bodies instead of rolling out these new guys no one gives a shit about?

I mean how many characters are already in the MU? This show needs some respectability - its like the dickhead relation no-one wants to know.


What about Clay Quartermain, Agent Gyrich or Agent 13.

This show is going to fail again unless they start bring in something more than some shit cameos and Deathlock with a lasertag vest.


GET IT TOGETHER MUTV or DCTV is going to own you!
Badmuffin - 7/30/2014, 2:09 AM
Mhn, new character, I'm ok with that. Let's see.

@ultimate: after bobbi morse, after lucy lawless, after Kraken...this show is failing again fo ONE original character?
Jesus...
UltimateTypeface - 7/30/2014, 4:23 AM
I havent seen Bobbi Morse so far - could be a shit cameo

OK Kraken has some sort of Marvel history(anyone?) but you got to admit its fairly random

Is Lucy Lawless playing an established character?

I want this to be good more than anyone - i just dont get why they dont go with some real MCU dudes.
Alfredo27 - 7/30/2014, 5:07 AM
Why use real comic characters? Fvck comic book fans is what marvel/Disney be yellin.
Badmuffin - 7/30/2014, 5:13 AM
Isabel Hartley, the widow of Victoria Hand (they was merried or something

@UltimateTypeface

"[frick] this, why dosent Marvel let them use some established no-bodies instead of rolling out these new guys no one gives a shit about?"

Ok... So you want C and D-level characters from the comics...fair enough.

"OK Kraken has some sort of Marvel history(anyone?) but you got to admit its fairly random"

Ok, so Kraken is too obscure for you? You want 'established nobodies' of which Kraken perfectly fits the mold. Yet you complain about his addition?

Move along little guy.
MercwithMouth - 7/30/2014, 5:28 AM
And in what way has AoS failed once?

Highest rating Tuesday prime time show in the 18-34 year old demographic (most important on TV), averaged over 6 million viewers every week. Emmy-nominated in it's first year.

Shit, what a failure. Marvel, you better call it off...
0megaDaGod - 7/30/2014, 8:05 AM


Are we really gonna do the "why aren't they using comic characters" thing AGAIN?
MercwithMouth - 7/30/2014, 8:17 AM
@0megaDaGod

I wonder how many people complaining about it know that Isabelle, and even Eric Koenig are originally comic characters?
Dedpool - 7/30/2014, 10:28 AM
@ OmegaDaGod - My thoughts exactly!!!
