At the mid-season finale for this past season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we got our first tease of Hive becoming a part of the shows future. The back from the dead version of Ward showed us a glimpse of the character’s look, but we had to wait until the season 3 finale to witness Hive in his true form. The final version was very close to the comic version and looked pretty great for a television show’s budget. Artist Joshua James Shaw did some of the concept art for the character and he has released the images (via Comicbook.com) shown in the gallery above.
I really like the look of Hive in not only the concept art, but also the final version that was on the air. It was a great opportunity for the show and the VFX team, specifically the great Mark Kolpack, to show what they could do. With the following season moving to 10 p.m. this fall, I would think the VFX budget gets trimmed a bit, but hopefully I am wrong.
If you missed out on any or all of season 3 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., you will be able to catch up on the series when it hits Netflix in June.
