Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Down the Home Stretch Casting Updates & Possible Season Finale Cameo

Does Marvel have anything special planned for the upcoming episodes or A.O.S. Season Finale? Are there any guest actors on the horizon? Has Samuel L. Jackson already filmed something for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Finale??? Find out after the jump....

1) Glenn Talbot

Adrian Pasdar as Glenn Talbot - Who spent years hunting the Incredible Hulk in the comics under the direction of General Ross. Is this just a merely reference or does this mean something larger is in the works for our big green friend coming up in Avengers: Age of Ultron???

2) Agent Eric Koening

Patton Oswalt (personal favorite) as Agent Koenig - I honestly have no clue to this characters origin but at a quick review tells me he may have something to do with Nick Fury? His 1st appearance in the comics comes from Sgt. Fury & his Howling Commandos #27. He was a member of the original team during WWII, but how will this play into the MCU?? I will leave all the speculation / brain storming to Mr. J. Peace a man that has a lot more Comic Book Brain Splatter knowledge than myself!!!   #SeeWhatIDidThere

3) Nick Fury

The peace-keeping organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. has been a constant throughout the Marvel cinematic universe, but after [SPOILER ALERT!] (highlight to reveal text) Captain America: The Winter Soldier effectively blew S.H.I.E.L.D. to smithereens, what does that mean for Marvel's television show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? We'll soon find out, but when Vulture ran into Samuel L. Jackson last week at the premiere of his wife's Broadway play A Raisin in the Sun,  they asked the actor if he'd be filming any more cameos:
 "I did! Last week! I just shot the end-of-the-season show." He wouldn't reveal any details, however. "You're trying to get me fired and killed! I don't talk about Marvel's business. None of us do." 

Jackson has popped up on the ABC program before, as have Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill and Jaimie Alexander as Sif, and he said he appears at the discretion of Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige: "If they ask Kevin Feige and Kevin says, 'We'd like for you to do it,' I do." And while it's hard to imagine how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will keep going now that (highlight to reveal text) Fury has gone underground and the titular organization is no more, Jackson promised it would all come together soon. "It ties into the TV show," Jackson said."They wanted to tie that up." We can't wait!

 What direction will Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D take after the events in Captain America: The Winter Soldier? What could Nick Fury's finale role be? Will Agent Coulson forgive his former boss for the post Avengers doctor visits? & lastly how will Marvel wrap it all up???
