Character Details Emerge For Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Show
Part of Joss Whedon’s multi-year contract as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s godfather involves working towards a S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show. The Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division led by Nick Fury (Sam Jackson) will be making its way to ABC. TV Line has a rundown of the cast of characters for the pilot episode. Check out 5 of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:
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.
This sounds like some familiar Whedon fare. The S.H.I.E.L.D. show is still in the early stages, but Whedon will write the series with his brother Jed and possible direct the pilot if his schedule allows. What do you think of the character details? Are you getting excited for this show yet?
