The B-Reel – Michael Madsen Joins the Cast of ‘Powers’, the ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Search for Simmons, And Jay Garrick has a Photo Op

3338674-08Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming announced at San Diego Comic-Con that the Powers universe’s most powerful hero would be appearing in season two. And now it has been announced that Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Sin City) will portray him on the Playstation Network’s superhero police procedural. SuperShock was the original and most famous super hero in the world that Powers takes place, but he disappeared over forty years ago at the height of his career under mysterious circumstances. It seems his return after the death of Retro Girl will beg more questions than it answers.

“Super-Shock is the most powerful superhero in the ‘Powers’ universe,” Bendis explained. “With him comes a whole new set of problems and achievements. With Retro Girl’s death, Super-Shock comes out of wherever he’s been and we’ll discover a lot about the ‘Powers’ universe through him and Walker and Deena’s relationship.”

“This is the biggest superhero in the world. Superheroes were named after him. He never took an advertisement dollar, he never was in product placement. He kept it pure for decades and decades,” he added.

Powers returns to the Playstation Network in 2016.

This new trailer for next week’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is incredibly spoiler-y if you haven’t yet watched last night’s episode. The team intensifies their mission to find Simmons with the help of a returning Asgardian, and Hydra begins to rebuild with ex-agent Ward at the helm.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesday nights on ABC.

With only one week left until The Flash returns to television, Teddy Sears has shared a photo of himself on Instagram in costume as Jay Garrick, the Flash from an alternate timeline. Sears will be just one of many speedsters this season, but will Barry Allen refuse his help when Atom Smasher attacks Central City?

BARRY DECIDES HE NEEDS TO PROTECT THE CITY ON HIS OWN – Picking up months after the Singularity attacked Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) is still struggling to forgive himself for Eddie’s death. Concerned about putting his friends in danger, Barry has pushed everyone away and has chosen to protect the city on his own. When a meta-human named Atom Smasher (guest star Adam Copeland) attacks the city, Iris (Candice Patton) tells Barry that he needs to let his friends help him protect the citizens of Central City. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) helps Joe (Jesse L. Martin) with his Meta Task Force. Ralph Hemecker directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Gabrielle Stanton (#201).
