TVGuide has just released a new interview with Brett Dalton, recorded back in early January, concerning his character’s return. A shocking mid season finale contained the death of Grant Ward and, below, Brett discusses the impact of his new role on the upcoming second half of season three.
Brett reveals that the ‘Creature’, as it’s referred to in the interview, is an enigmatic being. He goes on to tease the long history of this presumed Inhuman, and how it has played a significant role on both Earth, and the planet Maveth. For Hydra, returning this being to Earth has been the work of centuries, and their mission is now complete — so what next?
Furthermore, Brett teases that this Creature has the power to inhibit bodies, much as we saw it convincingly possess Will in Maveth. The true motive and intentions of this entity remain to be seen, as does the extent to which Ward’s memories remain. Certainly knowledge of the team will have a great impact on any future interactions with SHIELD and, potentially, also those within Hydra.
As we reported earlier this month, Elizabeth Henstridge let slip that Brett will return in season 3 as Hive. Dalton’s description of the new character, however, leads us to believe that the writers have diverged from comic canon. How that will play out on screen? We’ll have to wait and see!
Do you think the Creature will raise hell on Earth? Will Malick decide that he’s made a huge mistake? Perhaps both. Tells us what you think!
