While the first teaser for the midseason premiere of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." promised new character in the second half of Season 3, there was at least one familiar non-S.H.I.E.L.D. face in the mix: Carl "Crusher" Creel, aka the Absorbing Man.
Noticed by eagle-eyed viewers in the midseason return teaser, and confirmed by Comics Alliance, the character will factor into the brewing war between Inhumans and humans. But will it be as friend or foe?
Brian Patrick Wade will reprise the role, which he brought to life in Season 2, on the March 8 episode, "Bouncing Back." Check out he official synopsis and trailer below.
In the aftermath of his trip to Maveth, Coulson is more determined than ever to get to Gideon Malick and put an end to Hydra once and for all. Daisy and the team encounter more Inhumans who have powers like they've never seen before, but will they be friends or enemies of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." returns March 8 at 9/8c on ABC.
