INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
For an international spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. sure does seem to be leaking a lot of information. Take the above video from ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which spills all kinds of beans about Ming-Na Wen’s Agent Melinda May. What if Hydra knows about YouTube?
As you can see, in the upcoming drama May is a retired field agent doing office work until Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) recruits her to “drive the bus.” This jibes with what the actress said earlier this month when discussing her character. “She definitely honors her job and she takes it very seriously and she has a lot of skills to reach Level 7,” Wen said. “But from what I gather she has some damage, she’s like a damaged soldier. I think she’s definitely one of the more season/experienced agents in this crew.”
Wen appears alongside Marvel Studios veteran Gregg, reprising his role as Agent Coulson,Chloe Bennet as Skye, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Gemma Simmons and Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz. Cobie Smulders also has a cameo as Agent Maria Hill in the Joss Whedon-directed pilot.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
