Agents of SHIELD will be reporting to O’Mara who is “playing a character whose Marvel roots go back to the 1940s” according to the studio.
“Bringing Jason into the mix as the New Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. forces everyone, particularly Coulson, to reevaluate their role in the Agency,” Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb explained. “Jason has both the physical presence and acting dynamics that will connect with and challenge even the most loyal agent.”
“Beyond excited to be joining the
@AgentsofSHIELD team as the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Can’t say anything else or I’ll get into trouble,” O’Mara tweeted.
