Are 'Hercules' And 'Speedball' Coming To AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.?

Are 'Hercules' And 'Speedball' Coming To AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.?

With Mockingbird set to make her debut in 3 weeks, additional information has surfaced which may indicate that another couple of popular Marvel characters are on their way to Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Click on for more..

Actor and frequent Joss Whedon collaborator Fran Kranz (Cabin In The Woods, Much Ado About Nothing) recently tweeted (and then deleted) and interesting list of names.  Luckily, the guys over at OhNoTheyDidnt were able to screencap the tweet.  Needless to say, it's VERY intriuging.

Robbie Baldwin became known as Speedball after his body was bombarded with interdimentional energy during a freak accident.  Gifted with an exterior shell of kinetic energy, Speedball eventually becomes a member of the New Warriors, a team of young heroes including Night Thrasher, Namorita, Nova, Marvel Boy and Firestar.  The team would later be involved in a reality show gone wrong which results in the destruction of a small neighborhood and leads into Marvel's Civil War.  In a fit of guilt for surviving the incident, Baldwin ditches the Speedball moniker and takes up the name Penance as a member of Norman Osborne's Thunderbolts


In other speculatory news, the fourth episode of Season 2 will feature Maya Strojan as Agent 33.  Agent 33 is notable for being a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in the comics who recruited Hercules in order to do battle with Ares and the Warhawks.  While it may seem a stretch to believe Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the showrunners confirmed to Zap2it this past February that they have "discussed taking their SHIELD agents to fictional Marvel worlds," but specified that "they're gong to roll out new universes slowly as they want the characters to fully exist in their own world first."

What characters would you guys like to see pop up in season 2 of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
