S.H.I.E.L.D. Recruits 3 More Agents!

By: Adam Basciano

New York Comic Con brought us the news that Clark Gregg will reprise his Agent Coulson role in the television pilot.  Marvel and Disney recently made public, the addition of three new cast members.  Sci fi veteran of “Eureka” and “Stargate: Universe” fame Ming-Na will play Melinda May, the groups pilot and resident weapons expert.  Two relative unknown actors, Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker have been cast in the roles Agent Gemma Simmons and Leo Fitz respectively.  These two characters have been described as a brother -sister type duo who are experts in their respective fields of weapons and science.

Truth be told, I have no experience seeing any of these actors perform their craft.  So I can’t give an opinion on them.  I do have experience with Joss Whedon’s televiaion work.  The man is an exert at taking an ensemble cast, and turning many of it’s unknowns into sci-fi stars.  Look no further then “Buffy”, “Angel”, and “Firefly” for examples.  Whoever he chooses, will deliver the quality we’ve come to expect from a Joss Whedon T.V. series  and a Marvel Studio’s live action production.
