Ahead of the introduction of Bill Paxton’s Agent John Garrett, Marvel has release a new, 2+ minute Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. clip showing the super-spy in action. Want to see?

Paxton’s character will be introduced in the Tuesday, March 4, episode “Tahiti,” which finds the team on a search for medical help to save the critically wounded Skye and deeper answers for Coulson. The clip is actually a good bit of fun, and it looks like Paxton’s addition could be a great move for the series.

He brings some much-needed (actually funny) humor to the group, as he helps lead Coulson and his team into a top-secret medical facility. Oh, plus a massive hail of gunfire. Though we only get to see a bit of his interactions with the team, he definitely seems like a good fit.

The series is finally starting to hit some semblance of a creative stride, and we’re hoping these deeper shots into the world of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Marvel universe are what it needs to close out season one on a strong note.

Check out the clip above and let us know what you think. Can Paxton help save the day?
