Powers Boothe Joins The Cast Of Marvel’s ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

Another familiar face is coming to Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. this season. Powers Boothe, who you may remember from his appearance in The Avengers as a member of the World Security Council, has joined the cast of the series as Gideon Malick. The character, whose described as a notorious man whose loyalties remain a mystery, will appear in a recurring role throughout the season. Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head Of Television, had the following to say about Boothe’s addition to the cast.

Gideon is incredibly menacing and in him we have a character that even the stone-cold Ward would fear. Only someone of Powers’ caliber could deliver the type of ominous and powerful performance we needed.

It’s definitely going to be interesting to see what role Malick has in the series and if it somehow ends up connecting to Captain America: Civil War. Let us know what you think about this addition in the box below.
