'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Featurette Introduces Grant Ward

Grand Ward

We already know all about Agent Phil Coulson — well, except for how he's still alive, that is — so it's time to meet some of his fellow "S.H.I.E.L.D." agents.

A brand new featurette for Marvel's upcoming TV show has gone online, focusing entirely on Agent Grant Ward, a new S.H.I.E.L.D. agent created for the series and played by Brett Dalton.

"Agent Ward is a black-ops specialist," says Dalton. "Anything that involves reconnaissance skills of a military nature, he's brilliant at — he's just not so great at the people skills."

The featurette shows scenes between Ward and Coulson, with the veteran agent's dry sense of humor falling on Ward's deaf ears. He comes across as a no-nonsense kind of operative; anyone who makes Coulson seem like a sunny individual must be pretty damn business-oriented. But as an actor, Dalton couldn't be more optimistic about working on the "S.H.I.E.L.D." TV series and joining the Marvel family.

"Being a part of the Marvel Universe is incredible," he says. "Fans are going to love this."

Watch the featurette below.
