Brett Dalton may be best known as Agents of SHIELD’s double agent Grant Ward, but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t make an appearance in another superhero universe.
Dalton paid a visit to the ComicBook.com studio and revealed which DC Comics character he’d be interested in putting his own spin on, which you can see in the video above.
“There’s a lot of other really incredible things going on out there,” Dalton says. “I saw back here that you have Lobo and I know that that’s DC and that’s nobody’s gone in that direction. That could be really dark and really twisted and its super graphic. It’d have to be for Netflix, or maybe even an animated thing because you can get away with a lot of gore with that as well, but you wouldn’t have to choreograph or any of that stuff.”
Lobo was created in 1983 by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen as a parody of the grim and gritty characters that were so popular at Marvel Comics at the time. Lobo is an alien from the planet Czarnia who works as an interstellar bounty hunter.
However, Dalton’s first loyalties remain to Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and the character that he helped define, Grant Ward.
“We do have a season five with Agents of SHIELD,” Dalton says. “If they ever wanted to give me a call and say that they found a way to get me back in, automatic yes.”
“I really like Grant Ward,” he adds. “I think...its this perfect combination of the creators and the writers and whatever I brought to it. But they were listening and they were seeing that too because nobody is good at everything...I would hope that his journey is not over.”
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD will return for its fifth season in January 2018.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns with a vengeance for the fourth exciting season in an all new time period, Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. ET. In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they’ve ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward. The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.
