Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally returns from its three-month hiatus next week with the midseason premiere "Aftershocks", debuting Tuesday, March 3 at 9 PM ET on ABC. Entertainment Weekly has debuted a new poster for the midseason premiere, which features Skye, who became the Inhuman Daisy Johnson (aka Quake) in the midseason finale "What They Become", following the release of a terrigan mist. We also see Coulson (Clark Gregg) and get our first look at the full Inhuman transformation of Raina (Ruth Negga). Fittingly, the poster was created by artist Gabriele Dell'Otto, who co-created Daisy Johnson in the Marvel comic books. Executive producer Jeffrey Bell shed some new light on how the poster teases Raina's actual look on the show, in the back half of Season 2, along with new details about "Aftershocks":
"I would say for this, it's not without base and some fact. It's representative, and it's his interpretation of certain things, and I think certain things here are quite different than how she'll look. But I think it's also hinting at the transformation. So when we approach them, we say, 'we think this is interesting because of this or this.; This episode is the aftermath of Skye becoming a superhero, and maybe we'll show them the script or let them watch the episode and let them respond to it emotionally and see what's interesting to them. And then we have a conversation with them about how we'd like to portray that, and then we try to lean into the strengths that they have. Some are more graphic, some are more character based, some are more composite, and some are cleaner. And that's one of the things we really look forward to each week, getting the initial sketches back from the artists and seeing their interpretation. It's really fun to see how each one is unique and different, and we hope fans want to collect all of them-I know I do!"
This poster is the first of a 12-part series dubbed The Art of Evolution, with a poster accompanying each of the remaining 12 Season 2 episodes. Subsequent posters will debut every Thursday for the remainder of Season 2, and fans will also be able to purchase them on the Marvel website starting at 12:30 PM ET every Friday. The "Aftershocks" poster will be priced at $49.99, but there are only 100 copies available for purchase.
