Marvel's Agent's of S.H.I.E.L.D. may not be back on our screens for a while, but we do know one of the new faces that will be popping up in a very important role thanks to TV Line.

They're reporting that next season we're finally going to get to see who exactly Skye's father is, and he's a familiar face to many. If you're a fan of the show you'll know that the mystery of Skye's parentage was one that was carried all season long, with only tiny hints to her mysterious origins being revealed as we learned that Skye herself was left at an orphanage and was classified by S.H.I.E.L.D. as an object of unknown origin. Well today's big reveal is that the one and only Kyle MacLachlan will be playing the role.

Yes, Special Agent Dale Cooper is coming to the Marvel Universe.

Little else is known about his character, but seeing as Guardians of the Galaxy introduced to a rake of alien characters and species and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  has hinted at such characters as it went along, it's safe to say things are about to get a lot more cosmic on our telly boxes.
