“Gideon is incredibly menacing and in him we have a character that even the stone-cold Grant Ward would fear,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “Only someone of Powers’ caliber could deliver the type of ominous and powerful performance we needed.”
Gideon will be played by Powers Boothe who is known for Sin City, Deadwood. Boothe previously appeared in “Marvel’s The Avengers” as a member of the World Security Council so is he reprising his role? makes sense, but we will just have to wait and see.
