AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Showrunners Talk Sif And Deathlok

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showrunners Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon discuss Lady Sif's (Jaimie Alexander) guest spot and whether more big names like Deathlok (J. August Richards) are on the horizon.

CBR spoke with two of the showrunners from the Marvel Cinematic Universe drama, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. about a number of topics, most interestingly, the conversation included some info on Lady Sif's guest spot on the show and what's coming up in the Deathlok storyline. On Sif, Tancharoen stated, " It's really exciting for us to be the ones who allow audiences to get to know her a little bit more. In the "Thor" movies she's one of the players, but here, she has many, many scenes with our characters. Seeing the way she interacts with them, and also knowing her perspective, and why she's here, and her moral compass -- that was very fun, to be able to dive into that." Jed added, "We had been excited to have an Asgardian from the films on our plane, because the fish out of water stuff in "Thor" was some of the best stuff, and also because Coulson is a little bit of a fanboy. An actual Asgardian in his midst -- we were excited for that, and it definitely played out just the way we had hoped. She's a pleasure to work with, and that also made it much easier, once she stepped on the set and was totally game for anything, it makes it a pleasure to write for her."

As far as superhero cameos are concerned, the two showrunners were asked if Deathlok is the biggest superhero name the show will ever feature or are bigger characters on the horizon? "If they're excited about Deathlok, then they should be excited about the things to come....We have some other very fun guest stars in the pipeline.," teased Tancharoen. Whedon countered, "We're in a weird spot, because if the character is big and cool enough, then they're probably planning a movie. [Laughs] We have a fairly large list of characters that we have at our disposal, and we plan on exploring all of them."
