As fans of Agents of SHIELD know, we are getting treated to a new director this season. So far, no one has mentioned the new directors name, they simply have referred to him as The Director. Well folks, I am here to let you all in on the secret identity of the mysterious Director. The Director is in fact Jeffrey Mace AKA The Patriot!
The Patriot is a WWII era hero who modeled himself after Captain America, however I have doubts that our Director will be given that back story. No, I think the new director will take up Captain America's shield and lead SHIELD as The Patriot, paying homage to his comic roots while at the same time giving his story a twist.
Now, I know many will say this is mere speculation, but a clip from episode 2 of Agents of SHIELD clearly shows Agent Coulson calling the new director by the first name Jeffrey. The actor playing the Director, Jason O'Mara, has already stated the character has comic roots back to the 40's and so the only character to fit these 2 clues is Jeffrey Mace AKA The Patriot. Well, what do you all think? As always. feel free to comment, like, share, tweet, or whatever other thing you kids do on your social media these days.
