Agents Of SHIELD Adds Craig Parker As A Trader From Another Planet

If you’ve been keeping up with Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, then you’ll know that things have been getting a little intense for the team.

The agents are currently in hiding where they’re also trying to save the world from, quite literally, exploding. While there have been some hints towards a plot tying into Infinity War, it is still too far away to tell how they will be fitting it in.

If it’s anything like the tie in with Winter Soldier (the best tie in ever in our opinions over at the Mission Complete podcast), then we won’t have any idea it’s happening until it does.

But maybe this guy could have something to do with it?

According to TVLineCraig Parker has been cast as an alien named Taryan who is some sort of trader from another world. (He’s also probably a villain let’s be real here.)

Are we reaching thinking he could be a connection to Infinity War? Probably. We do know that Taryan will be playing will make his appearance towards the end of season five.

It isn’t mentioned which world Parker’s character helms from. Since we’ve already been introduced to the Kree in the AoS universe, then we have to think that it could be a species from a different planet.

Parker has had previous roles on Reign, Spartacus: War of the Damned, Legend of the Seeker, and Shortland Street.

Make sure to tune into Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on Friday nights at 9/8c. If you want to hear us yell about our feelings on the aforementioned show, then please tune into the Mission Complete podcast which we post once a week.
