With production commencing soon after the New Year, ABC's Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot has enlisted the finale Agent to its main ensemble cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nashville actress Chloe Bennet has joined the prospective TV series, directed and co-written by Joss Whedon.

Bennet will play Agent Skye, who is described as “a confident woman who is slightly obsessed with superhero culture and the shadow organizations that exist within it. She's edgy and can out-talk anyone with her unflappable nature.” The relatively unknown Chinese-American actress has appeared in a TV movie, Intercept, beyond her role on ABC's Nashville. The actress can be found on Twitter with the handle @ChloeBennet4, where she's confirmed the news.

Chloe Bennet-Wang-joins Ming-Na (Melinda May), Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), Brett Dalton (Grant Ward), Elizabeth Henstridge (Gemma Simmons) and Ian De Caestecker (Leo Fitz). In addition to Joss Whedon, Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot is penned by his brother Jed Whedon and his wife Maurissa Tancharoen. And Marvel TV's Executive producer Jeph Loeb stated recently that the pilot is aiming for a premiere spot on ABC's Fall of 2013 line-up. What do you think?

Anyone else as excited as me for the possibilities of this show???? I'd love for Luke Cage and Iron Fist to be introduced through this show!

Oh a fanboy can dream :)

@batz hahaha my first thoughts when I saw the actress lol

"She's edgy and can out-talk anyone with her unflappable nature.”

Sounds like classic Whedon to me. Can't wait!

Also, there has to be a fap joke in the word 'unflappable'. Unfappable? I dunno, someone else put it together, I'm too tired.

I guess she'll do, but I was kinda hoping they'd go Latin/Hispanic or African-American with the role, seeing as how the cast featured 4 Caucasian actors and a Chinese actor. It would have been nice to round out the cast with a non-Caucasian female. I honestly wasn't expecting another actor of Chinese descent. I don't think I've ever seen a show with 2 Chinese actors in lead roles, much less ones who aren't playing related characters.

I also didn't expect the actress to be so young. I assumed they'd cast someone in their late20s or early 30s, but she just turned 21 this year.

Anyway, I look forward to it.

This show has an Epic amount of potential... With Whedon behind it, it will be awesome!
Shamo - 12/19/2012, 2:34 PM
bich is bad as hell. thank you whedon.
TheAbomination - 12/19/2012, 3:09 PM
This show looks promising. Hope it has a lengthy and successful run!

Wow! couldn't find room for a single african-american actor huh? I guess I can give this one a miss. Too bad Joss Whedon's brother isn't married to a black woman, maybe then we could have gotten an african-american character instead of two Asian ones.
TheFirstAvenger97 - 12/19/2012, 3:37 PM
Okay now we need a the pilot.
Shamo - 12/19/2012, 4:14 PM
@ nuclearpriest
why do we have to choose between casting blacks or asians? why not have both? why not take up beef with the white casting as opposed to the asian?
nuclearpriest - 12/19/2012, 4:36 PM
@ Shamo

"why not have both?" you say? Perhaps you should check the cast list, that die has already been cast and only one of both made the cut. Not their fault to be sure, but I was blaming Joss and Jed not Miss Tancharoen or the fortunate actors who made the cut.

@nuclearpriest
Not every show has to have a black character you know! I understand if you want someone to relate to but hey, I love black sitcoms! You know the ones where white people are portrayed as idiots. Lol
mctrinket - 12/19/2012, 7:07 PM
Lotsa hot Asian chicks on this show--never a bad thing as far as nerds are concerned.
mgeoff88 - 12/19/2012, 8:17 PM
I've never heard of her. She is very beautiful.

I have high hopes for this show! I wish we didn't have to wait for fall of next year for the pilot.
nuclearpriest - 12/19/2012, 9:29 PM
@spidersponge

Gee, spidersponge, you say Not every show has to have a black character, thanks for the info because I never would have figured that out for myself. Thank God you're a genius. So I guess I can stop waiting for the black character on Modern Family or The Big Bang Theory or Two and a Half Men or How I met your Mother, et al. But I'm more interested in all these black sitcoms you watch where white characters are portrayed as idiots. I must have missed them somehow. Help a brother out because the only black show I've seen where whites are idiots is the NBA.

Fingers crossed it lasts more than 1 season or a full season, though it should... it better! :p

@BigDamnHero - I first read this story on IGN. The first comment was something like "she doesn't look "unfappable" to me" and the rest of the thread was pretty much fap jokes.
riseofloganX36 - 12/20/2012, 12:22 PM
I think a S.H.I.E.L.D. tv show sounds stupid but dam! shes a little hottie i might check it out.

UNTIL next time TRUE BELIEVERS!
CherryBomb - 12/20/2012, 12:28 PM
I like that they're casting some unfamiliar faces! :D
but I'm annoyed they aren't casting any comicbook roles :(
