Marvel and ABC are moving full steam with the SHIELD Tv series, expected for next Fall, and according to TVline, below is the characters that will be part of the Series pilot (executive produced and co-written by avengers Director Joss whedon):
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.
According to rumors characters from the avengers Movie and superheroes will all stop by for guest appearances every now and the, and Marvel is keen on introducing new Comic super heroes and Villains to the Marvel Cinematic Universe through the show.
Comic fans might be disappointed than no familiar SHIELD characters from the comics, like agent Quatermaine, has been mentioned yet, but must remember that this is a casting call for only five characters of the series, so there is, definitely, a chance that more popular agents will be part of the series.
