This past week, we learned that Marvel godfather Stan Lee, a living legend in both the comic book and comic book movie worlds, would be making an extended cameo on the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this season. After the conclusion of the latest episode this week, Marvel and ABC teased Lee’s cameo in the promo for the next new episode of the show.
The next new episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn’t air until February 4th, but the teaser that debuted shows off Stan Lee in part of his cameo appearance and is sure to excite fans of the series.
Right now there isn’t a synopsis available for the episode, but the main draw will be Lee’s cameo. Earlier this week, it was announced that Bill Paxton had joined the series in a multi-episode role and the reliance on big name cameos has begun. It’s not a secret that the show has suffered through some spotty writing this season, and a complete re-tooling is expected before next season airs.
The show isn’t totally doomed, but fans are starting to catch on to the weak writing and are demanding better.
The next episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 at 8 PM ET on ABC.
