Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode 2 Title & Plot Revealed; New Featurette
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuts on ABC Tuesday, September 24th at 8pm ET, and in addition to the episode one plot synopsis becoming known, episode two has been revealed, as well as a new featurette.
Episode two titled "0-8-4" is described as follows (via SpoilerTV)
Coulson runs into Comandante Camilla Reyes when he and the agents travel to Peru to investigate a mysterious object.
Camilla Reyes looks to be a new character used for the show, but there is a Dr. Cecilia Reyes from the comics, who happens to be a mutant, as well as her brother Colonel Reyes, who is member of a team that uses sentinels designed by Stark Enterprises.
We're guessing they are unrelated and Marvel probably won't be using too many mutants on the series as Fox owns the movie rights to X-Men; however, I believe ABC and Marvel would be able to use any character as TV and film rights differ (obviously depending on who owns the TV rights for said character).
Hopefully the mysterious object appearing in episode two is something from the comics as well. Something Doctor Strange-related would be cool.
Check out the new Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. featurette:
