Marvel announced today that Constance Zimmer (House of Cards) has joined the cast for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 as a key new character described as the head of what Marvel will only describe as “mysterious new group.” This group, much like Coulson’s team, is tracking down Inhumans around the globe.
Zimmer will be introduced in the season 3 premiere and that her group is actually another government agency which screams of potential connections to next summer’s Captain America: Civil War, a film that will be all about regulating superheroes after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
There is a growing and understandable sense that superheroes and gifted individuals with extraordinary abilities need to be registered and held accountable for their vigilante actions, which is the cause the Civil War amongst all of those with powers and abilities.
Look out for more information as the next season fast approaches.
