Brian Patrick Wade set to trouble Coulson in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. as the Absorbing Man...

It seems Marvel’s MCU-set spy series Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is looking to embrace the world of the comic books even more. With the introduction of Mockingbird announced earlier in the week, we can now also report that Absorbing Man will make an appearance in the show’s second season premiere.

The Stan Lee and Jack Kirby creation will be played by Brian Patrick Wade, who’s appeared previously in Teen Wolf, The Big Bang Theory, CSI: Miami and many more.

Absorbing Man, real name Carl Creel, is a super villain who can absorb anything he touches. As ever, the introduction of a new super-powered villain is bound to cause headaches for Coulson and the gang. It makes us wonder, too, if we’ll see Graviton again in this season.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to US screens on 23 September. Channel 4 still haven’t confirmed if they’re maintaining the rights to the UK broadcast. More info as we hear it.
