In Marvel Comics, there is are two villains that go under the name of 'Blackout,' one with the power to suck the energy out of anything around him, and the second is a villain to Ghost Rider, who was played by Johnny Whitworth in the second film. But it appears as if Patrick Brennan (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2) will be playing the first of the two choices, who's comic name is Marcus Daniels, and will somehow tie into 'The Cellist.' Read on to see his thoughts on the role and more!
Here's what the actor had to say about his upcoming role on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: What they told me is this guy, Marcus Daniels, a.k.a. Blackout, was shrouded in darkness, his soul, everything about him was shrouded in darkness until he comes across this Cello player. And the music was the only light that came into his soul, and it gave him hope and it gave him some sense of what light was. I thought to myself, oh my god, you don’t even need to explain anything else. Because music, to me, is what gets me through most of the time. My kids, my wife, and music. That aspect of it totally intrigued me. I thought that was quite beautiful and very interesting, that aspect of the character. So what are your thoughts on Brennan's role in the series? Leave your thoughts in the usual place!
Reprising his role from The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
