Enver Gjokaj reprises his Agent Carter TV collection function as SSR agent Daniel Sousa within the newest picture from Marvel’s Brokers of SHIELD season 7. Whereas it was initially supposed to function a tie-in to the MCU films when it launched in 2013, ABC’s Brokers of SHIELD has since taken on a lifetime of its personal, full with a (principally) standalone mythology. Even Clark Gregg, who’s continued to play SHIELD agent Phil Coulson on the TV present since his “dying” in The Avengers, has argued the collection solely received higher because it moved additional and additional away from the occasions of the Infinity Saga over the past seven years.

With its seventh and remaining season, Brokers of SHIELD is taking a leaf out of Avengers: Endgame‘s playbook and sending its heroes on a time-traveling journey to save lots of the world, albeit from a really completely different risk than Thanos. The brand new episodes will decide up the place the season 6 finale left issues, with the SHIELD staff and a newly-created Coulson LMD on a mission to cease the Chronicoms from attacking SHIELD all through historical past, starting in 1930s New York Metropolis. It was beforehand rumored the SHIELD crew would encounter Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) on their journey, however that has but to be confirmed.
Nonetheless, because of a brand new photograph launched by EW (see beneath), we are able to now affirm the staff will cross paths with Atwell’s Agent Carter costar Gjokaj as Daniel Sousa in some unspecified time in the future in season 7. He is likely to be just a little completely different than viewers keep in mind him too, in response to this quote from co-showrunner Jeff Bell:
We get to see him in a distinct gentle. [Sousa] had a specific function on [Agent Carter], and so we have been in a position to present one other shade of him that you just hadn’t essentially seen on the present.
Sousa, for individuals who want a refresher, was a disabled WWII veteran and the uncommon agent on the SSR who gave Peggy the respect she deserved on the ’40s-set Agent Carter. He and Peggy even turned romantically concerned on the finish of season two, however the present was cancelled earlier than it may proceed to discover their relationship. (Keep in mind, this was all earlier than Steve Rogers went again in time to guide a cheerful married life with Peggy within the remaining moments of Endgame.) Gjokaj beforehand labored with SHIELD co-creators Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen on the Joss Whedon sci-fi TV collection Dollhouse, so his look in season 7 marks a reunion for the trio. As Tancharoen advised EW:
Since Jed and I labored with him on Dollhouse, we’re very conscious of what Enver is able to. So we have been simply feeling like we may dive just a little deeper with Sousa.
Though EW‘s report does not specify the place in time the present’s heroes encounter Sousa, it stands to cause the collection will decide up after Agent Carter season 2 and/or, as a minimum, use the crossover as a technique of offering some closure for Gjokaj’s character. That is technically the second crossover for Brokers of SHIELD and Agent Carter after SHIELD season 2 opened with a flashback to Peggy within the ’40s, nevertheless it’s a welcome addition to the present’s final hurrah all the identical. Very similar to Endgame allowed the MCU to mirror on its historical past and even “appropriate” a couple of errors alongside the best way, the hope is season 7 will not solely give a becoming sendoff to Brokers of SHIELD, but additionally the bygone period of Marvel Tv it represents. After a few years of laborious work, Coulson and his staff deserve it.
