Joss Whedon and his team are hard at work prepping for S.H.I.E.L.D., the new television show based in the Marvel cinematic universe.
Whedon has said the main characters will not be based on any comic book characters, nor will they be people who have shown up in any of the Marvel films. So what does that mean? It means we’re going to get brand new characters made specifically for the television show.
Now, thanks to TV Line, we have some info and names for a few of the new guys:
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.
