A Kree Assassin Is Coming To “SHIELD”

A new report suggests that a Kree assassin character from the Marvel Comics is going to shortly pop up on the upcoming fifth season of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” on ABC. That Hashtag Show reports that the series is seeking a stunt performer to portray the Kree assassin Sals-Bek for a two-episode arc.

Appearing in the comic “Inhumans: The Great Refuge,” his storyline there had him out to kill members of the Royal Family – which has led to speculation about a potential crossover with ABC’s much maligned “Inhumans” limited series currently on the air.

The new season is expected to explore more of the cosmic side of the MCU with both the Kree and a version of their mysterious Monolith playing a part in the new season along with more non-Royal Inhumans.
