Very interesting tease via Marvel.com about the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D episode “Seeds”. Listed among its cast members is Dylan Minnette who previously played the role of the bully Kenny in “Let Me In” – as playing Donnie Gill.
What is interesting about this is that Donnie Gill is of course the name of Iron Man villain ‘The Blizzard”.
Marvel aren’t playing coy neither to quote the site “The villainous Ian Quinn returns to “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” alongside the debut of Donnie Gill–a name eagle-eyed Marvel fans may find familiar…”, Donnie Gill is the second iteration of the Blizzard who along with the original “Gregor Shapanka” wore a Mister Freeze-like cryogenic suit.
Unlike the original who was a brilliant ex-Stark industries employee Donnie is a career criminal who aquires the originals suit from Justin Hammer and over the years has had it upgraded by others such as The Fixer. Most notably Donnie was a member of The New Thunderbolts when as the Blizzard he adopted a more heroic role, Though this proved temporary.
But going against the casting, Donnie was a career criminal and not a teenager which begs the question – Will he suit up in the show?
