As many online guess and speculated, Marvel has announced that J. August Richards is playing Deathlok on Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel.com made the announcement as Deathlok celebrates its 40th year anniversary this year.

Transformed into the cybernetic solider against his will, Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) must struggle to find the man in the machine. With a high-tech eye that allows him to see through walls, super strength and increased speed courtesy of a cybernetic leg, will Deathlok fight alongside the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or against them?

"We have been waiting all season for this moment where we can reveal that Mike Peterson's story arc is an origin story," said Executive Producer Jeffrey Bell. "We're thrilled to have J. August Richards playing Deathlok and to have our audience enjoy this favorite Marvel character on the show."

"If you would have asked when I was nine-years old what I wanted to be, I would have said a super hero and I'm so excited to be one now as an adult on TV!" added J. August Richards. "It's a dream come true."

Deathlok arrives on Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Tuesday, February 4th!

Update: Elene Satine to play the Asgardian Lorelie; Facing off against Jaimie Alexander and Sif.
