Even though we’re still a little over a week out from the return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC, that hasn’t stopped the network from revealing information regarding the twelfth episode of season three, titled “Inside Man”. In this episode, which we just recently posted the above still from, as well a short tease regarding Ward’s new role, Coulson (Clark Gregg) will be forced to work with General Talbot (Adrian Pasdar), while a new traitor is revealed.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: The Inside Man (3/15)


“The Inside Man” – Coulson and General Talbot are forced to team up and attend a worldwide symposium on Inhumans, where they suspect Malick has an inside man. As the S.H.I.E.L.D. team gets closer to the truth, an unexpected traitor is revealed, on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” TUESDAY, MARCH 15 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT) on the ABC Television Network.

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Director Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Agent Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Nick Blood as Agent Lance Hunter, Adrianne Palicki as Agent Bobbi Morse, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and Luke Mitchell as Lincoln Campbell.

Guest starring are Powers Booth as Gideon Malick, Mark Dacascos as Giyera, Adrian Pasdar as Brigadier General Glenn Talbot, Raquel Gardner as Carla Talbot, Brian Patrick Wade as Carl Creel, Ravil Isyanov as Anton Petrov, Melissa Bickerton as Ellen King, Bayo Akinfemi as Nathi Zuma, Alexandra Chun as Xiao Chen, Tohoru Masamune as Haruto Yakimura and Gabriel Salvador as Lucio.

“The Inside Man” was written by Craig Titley and directed by John Terlesky.

The most interesting tidbit from the below synopsis, however, is that they are attending a “worldwide symposium on Inhumans”. As one of our team members pointed out in a recent Slack discussion, it’d be strange for the movies to ignore this, especially as this means the world is aware of Inhumans. While the television shows have done a rather great job at tying into the films – especially Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – there’s no denying that the film’s have continued to remain seperate from the television side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With S.H.I.E.L.D. having introduced Inhumans into the MCU, and the Inhumans film not set to hit until 2019, this would be a perfect opportunity for the two to connect. Especially with a film like Captain America: Civil War right around the corner.
