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?
