Following our exclusive spot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier today, there’s even more good stuff coming from the Marvel Universe today, as it was just announced that the one and only Patton Oswalt will be guest starring on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Oswalt has come a long way in his TV roles, from Spence on King of Queens years ago to Justified, The Heart, She Holler, and now guest starring as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Eric Koenig.
In addition to the mutual excitement that both Marvel/Oswalt fans and Oswalt himself have over this announcement (when asked to guest star, Oswalt replied, “hell, yes”), this might be the natural result of the famous Star Wars rant that Patton pulled off during his citizen filibuster on Parks and Recreation. You might remember (or can familiarize yourself with it here) that Patton suggests Thanos be able to jump between the Marvel Universe and Star Wars Universe through the power of the Infinity Gauntlet.
If it won’t happen through Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., maybe Oswalt can be on Community again, where that sort of thing is the norm.
