Hive Confirmed For “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

A notable Marvel Comics villain is making its way to the third season of ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”.

In the final moments of the mid-season finale, we saw Brett Dalton’s Grant Ward possessed by a dark entity from a remote planet. Now, The Nerdist has confirmed with producer Maurissa Tancharoen that the creature is ‘Hive’. In the comics, Hive was created as a Hydra experiment and is a tentacled mass of parasites that can take over and control a human host:

“[Hive] is going to have its own unique twist and be very different from what fans have seen so far. We will see similarities that pay homage to the original character, but fans will see that Hive is taking an exciting new direction in the world of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

“S.H.I.E.L.D.” is set to return to screens on March 8th.
