Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D Pilot Gets Two New Cast Additions!
Two relatively unknown actors by the name of Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker have joined the cast of Joss Whedon's Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV pilot, as Agents of the titular organization.
The folks from The Hollywood Reporter have just revealed two new Agents for ABC's Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV pilot. Actress Elizabeth Henstridge and actor Iain De Caestecker have joined the Joss Whedon-created prospective TV series, filling the roles of Agent Gemma Simmons & Agent Leo Fitz.
An early casting call described the two S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents as being “like a brother and sister who always bicker and annoy one another. They came up together and are masters in their fields: Fitz is good with weapons and gadgets while Simmons is into science. And during the show, Agent Simmons and Agent Fitz will apparently be given the nickname “Fitz-Simmons.”
The relatively unknown actors, Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker, join Ming-Na and Clark Gregg for the pilot, which is expected to start shooting as soon as January, next year. Joss Whedon said the series will be adjacent to the Marvel cinematic universe, but is structured so that it deals with agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. who are “the humans in a superhero world and how they deal with that and how it makes them vulnerable.” Whedon penned the pilot with his brother, Jed Whedon & his wife Maurissa Tancharoen. And the trio will also executive produce the pilot with Jeffrey Bell and Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb. What do you think?
In addition to “Marvel's The Avengers” sequel on May 1, 2015, Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; and “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014.
