Warning Spoilers Alert. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is taking yet another week off this Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean that we have to wait for answers to some of the show’s big mysteries. Now that we know that Agent Coulson was brought back to life by by a blue alien, the question remains what race the alien is. Now it has been confirmed that the alien race is not Frost Giant like Loki. It has also been teased that the alien may tie into the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film.

During the most recent episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Coulson asked Lady Sif if she knew of any blue skinned alien races. Sif ,of course being a well traveled warrior of Asgard, spouted off a long list of candidates, including:

Antidites, Levians, Fargoths, Krees, Sarks, Centaurians and Frost Giants (Oh My).

Now that list has been narrowed down a bit. TV Guide recently spoke to S.H.I.E.L.D.S. executive producer Jeff Bell about the new mystery:

"It's not a Frost Giant. We had to talk with the Marvel Studio because they've got aliens coming up in some of their movies, so we had to make sure that we fit within that, and we wanted to do it in a limited way. We're not saying there are these people running around on the planet. There's this thing that could've been there for thousands of years that they found."

Executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen added that the alien will likely tie-in to the larger MCU:

"There are a lot of theories, and with Guardians of the Galaxy coming out, people are steering one way because everything is connected in the Marvel Universe.”

Jed Whedon also added:

“We've heard a lot of theories and some of them are correct."

The upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film will feature two blue-skinned aliens, the Kree and the Centaurians.

What race do you think the alien is? Let us know in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on Tuesday April 1st.
