Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. Gets Some Agents

Which agents will Director Whedon be rounding up for his S.H.I.E.L.D. television pilot?



Source: S.H.I.E.L.D. Scoop: Meet the Members of Joss Whedon's New ABC Pilot!

Fans of the Marvel superhero movies were given  a pleasant surprise a few months ago when it was announced that Joss Whedon would be writing and directing a S.H.I.E.L.D. television pilot ordered by ABC.

As expected for an organization such as S.H.I.E.L.D., details about this new venture are sparse, but it appears that some casting details has been revealed via TVLine describing characters that are slated to appear in the pilot.

Again, since this is S.H.I.E.L.D., the names may be changed to protect (and possibly not spoil) the identity of the characters. From TVLine:

Skye - This late-20s woman sounds like a dream: fun, smart, caring and confident – with an ability to get the upper hand by using her wit and charm.

Agent Grant Ward - Quite the physical specimen and "cool under fire," he sometimes botches interpersonal relations. He's a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he's the kind of guy that grows on you.

Agent Althea Rice - Also known as "The Calvary," this hard-core soldier has crazy  skills when it comes to weapons and being a pilot. But her experiences have left her very quiet and a little damaged.

Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons -  These two came through training together and still choose to spend most of their time in each other’s company. Their sibling-like relationship is reinforced by their shared nerd tendencies – she deals with biology and chemistry, he’s a whiz at the technical side of weaponry.

Any of them sound familiar?

Really hope some of these are just obvious decoy names for long established characters.

Give us Jimmy Woo! :smt013

Bobbi Morse (later Barton) was a biochemist...maybe that last one is her. I could see "Grant Ward" being Gabe Jones (because c'mon, you know the cast ain't gonna be all lily-white)

I hope so as I would hate to think that Whedon decided to use all new characters and not include any established ones from the books.

If done right, they really can introduce some fan favorite "street level" characters. 8)

For me to be interested in this, I'd want characters I recognize: Dum Dum, Contessa, Clay, Jaspar, Gabe, etc.

But then won't royalties kick in for 'some' of their creators making them less lucrative and therefore, unusable?

Um.... Dugan, Gabe, and Woo were in Captain America, in ww2, and are shown as deceased during the extended Captain America scene in the Avengers.

Regardless, even if they did show up, they would all be in their 90's or over 100... and any way you slice that, it would be dumb..

Vanessa has only ever been interesting because of Nick, and you know Sam Jackson isn't going to be a regular on the tv show. He may make guest appearances,. because Whedon can throw ridiculous piles of cash his way, but Sam is A-List, and isn't going to damage his career by going tv.

Overall, I am glad they are going with new characters, I am also glad there is no one with super powers apparently on the team. That means its going to be a spy show primarily, and that's a show that is my dream shield series.

It's a Joss Whedon show, so even though it's an ensemble the featured lead will be a spunky, cute 20 something chick.

I'm fine with new characters, it won't bog them down with continuity.

Correct; besides, it's frustrating having to explain to non-comic readers subtle differences

I don't care about established characters or new characters. I just want it to be good.

But using new characters is probably a much better way for them to go, otherwise if they ever wanted to use the established characters in the movies, production on the show would be affected.

Having a cast of new characters also lets them cast bigger names in guest appearances as established people, who they could then easily spin off or use in the movies, having already locked in marketable movie names and having introduced them already in the show.
