Season three of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D wrapped up with Coulson being on the outs with the agency. With Jefferey Mace aka The Patriot shaking things up on the show, many are left wondering if he will finally suit up in the next season. Or if he will take Agent Coulson’s place. Just for your information, this will not be ‘The Patriot’ you know. In the comics, Mace is a superhero with great fighting ability, but no powers. On the show, he will no longer be an average man. He will be equipped with super-human strength, along with other mysterious powers.
In an interview with Screen Rant, Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel TV, provided the inside scoop on the fate of Jefferey Mace and the rest of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D:
I think one of the things that Marvel does very well is that we have this incredibly rich catalogue and there are characters that pop out for us that in some cases we need to share with some of the other divisions and in some cases they’re all ours. So we take a look at each character and – I think Jeff Bell said it best – there’s no point in taking any character unless they generate story.
When we first started talking about Director Mace and where’s he’s headed and the story that will come out of it – and whatever ties there may or may not be to the Patriot – is something you’ll hopefully stick around and watch and enjoy.
So far, fans of the show have been able to see bits of the character but there are still many questions. How did he become Inhuman? Why did Coulson recommend him for the job as director? Be sure to keep an eye out for next season and maybe this questions will finally be answered!
