“What strikes me as interesting about the world of live action television is how much it reminds me of comics publishing. Comics are weekly grind. Every Wednesday, retailers have to have product to sell, so the books have to go out. The amount of creative work and the mental energy put towards that content on a daily basis is stunning and really daunting if we had the luxury to really sit and think about the Sisyphean task for a second. Weekly episodic television is very much like that. The big difference of course is that you do get some time off to recharge a bit.”
Quesada also talked about other Marvel characters appearing in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” in particular Dr. Franklin Hall, aka Graviton.
“There were several reasons for using Hall. If you’re a long time Marvel fan, of course you’ll recognize the name, and we knew that would pique interest. It’s always fun to throw in an established character when you can to get fans excited. Heck, it gets us excited! But he’s also a very compelling character on his own. So if you’re not a comic fan, he’s a character you’ll be introduced to who we think will appeal to folks who don’t have an encyclopedic knowledge of the MU, especially this incarnation that our “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” writing team has come up with. Of course our loyal fans know that some interesting things happen to Dr. Franklin Hall in the pages of our comics, and while I’m not saying that those things happen here, the fact that perhaps someday they might is kind of cool.”
