Now that S.H.I.E.L.D. is officially coming to a television set near you, it's time to meet the agents.
Per TVLine.com (via ComicBook.com) here are S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new agents:
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.
No word on actors being cast for any of these roles yet, so stay tuned.
