UPDATE: Felicia Day As Abigail Brand And Frost Giant Added To IMDb's The Avengers Cast List!

While not necessarily the most reliable of sources, IMDb have updated their cast list to include Felicia Day as S.W.O.R.D Agent Abigail Brand, a Frost Giant and much more...

We all know how unreliable IMDb is. However, they have on occasion been right about some things! Why an Earth (or should that be Asgard?) would there be a Frost Giant in The Avengers? Recent rumors have indicated that part of the movie WILL take place in Thor's realm.

However, what's really interesting about this though, is the addition of Felicia Day as S.W.O.R.D Agent Abigail Brand...especially as it was The Avengers director Joss Whedon who created that character during his run on comic book series, "Astonishing X-Men". Plus, the actress has previously worked with Whedon on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. And if that wasn't enough to get you interested, remember DCMarvelFreshman's article last year where Day stated that she'd be more than happy to take a role in the movie? No? Check it out here.



Not much is known about Abigail since little has been revealed about her personal life. Aside from her age, the only thing known about her is that she is a commanding officer of both S.H.I.E.L.D. and S.W.O.R.D. which is dedicated to the defending the Earth against extraterrestrial threats.


What do you think? Would Felicia Day make a good Abigail Brand? Is the inclusion of this character yet another indication that the movie will see the team take on an outer space threat such as the Skrulls? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

UPDATE: Well, it was a nice thought while it lasted, but IMDb have once again been shown up as an incredibly unreliable source of information. Here's what Felicia Day herself seemingly had to say about the rumors less than one hour ago via Twitter:



With an all star cast which includes Chris Evans as Captain America, Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Rufallo as Bruce Banner, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, The Avengers is set to be released on May 4, 2012!

I think it's bullshit.
Hellsing - 5/22/2011, 2:09 PM
well IF this is true which is a big if since its IMDB, then its definitely interesting, since she Brand and SWORD made there debut in x-men, I would have thought that would tie her character to X-men fox would own it but since SWRODS is a division of SHIELD I guess it makes sense Marvel have the rights to it.

It is from IMDB but then again it does sound possible, especially the frost giant seeing how we are prbably going to see asgard in avengers because thor is still there..
Hawksblueyes - 5/22/2011, 2:16 PM
Didn't Troy Brenna play a Frost Giant in Thor?
HeyVanity - 5/22/2011, 2:16 PM
It doesn't sound true, but this is a character created by Whedon, not to mention he obviously loves Felicia Day. I could definitely see this happening...

I like her hair :)
santoanderson - 5/22/2011, 2:21 PM
Sounds like a fanboy addition. Next we'll be seeing Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, and the rest of the Firefly crew added to the IMDB cast-list.
Shadowmaster35 - 5/22/2011, 2:22 PM
Why is S.W.O.R.D. in this? not that i mind, but if they are that means something extraterrestrial needs to show up in the movie. hopefully a prelude to the Kree/Skrull war (just a warning, i don't want them actually in the movie more like an easter egg thing).
Jefferys - 5/22/2011, 2:22 PM
She is possible, but unlikely
seedslinger - 5/22/2011, 2:29 PM
She's a good character. Emma Frost on Absinthe.
Ichaos - 5/22/2011, 2:33 PM
Where are all the girl frost giants?
UncleDrew - 5/22/2011, 2:38 PM
I like her but I think she would be a miscast as Abigail Brand
UltimateSpiderman - 5/22/2011, 2:40 PM
IMDB can be edited by anyone. Derp.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 5/22/2011, 2:41 PM
IMDb is so unreliable they had Kevin Pennington listed as one of the cast member and had Oded Fehr listed as Graviton
cable23 - 5/22/2011, 2:43 PM
If she is playing Abagail Brand then the inclusion of Sword means extratrestrial life is involved. Skrulls/Kree anyone?!?
Xandera - 5/22/2011, 2:44 PM
That certainly would be interesting to see how they use a Frost Giant in the Avengers... but I think it's BS... Friggin IMDB...

if it is true...that means S.W.O.R.D. is in the film...which means the Marvel Universe is brining in their galactic heroes...which means...NOVA!

I think you can believe most of the stuff on imdb. I've never seen them wrong(or at least noticed). But, I guess like everything else on the net, it has to be taken with a "mountain of salt".

She could be a skrull, undercover.
CherryBomb - 5/22/2011, 2:51 PM
This is most likely false.
I love Felicia Day, but I don't think she has the right dominating screen-pressence for Abigail Brand.

Maybe Sienna Miller


or Rosamund Pike

intresting,but we are talking about imdb.
ElColmillo - 5/22/2011, 2:55 PM
IMDB...lol
MrLoki - 5/22/2011, 2:55 PM
That would be AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really, really hope it is true!!! :))))

And she is HOT as hell - http://youtu.be/urNyg1ftMIU !!!
CherryBomb - 5/22/2011, 2:55 PM
IMDB also reported Kate Mara was going to play Bethany Cabe in Iron Man 2 ... getting me all excited ... then it turned out Kate played a small cameo as a US Marshall .
So I do not trust IMDB at all.

When will they add this guy to the cast after leaving everyone wondering after TIH whether he will at least do a cameo appearance in Avengers?? At least Marvel owes him that!!!!

soaponapope - 5/22/2011, 3:08 PM
Here's my guess as to why there are Frost Giants in the Avenges, and it's also my theory on the movie as a whole(contains a minor THOR spoiler if you haven't seen it still):

Frost giants are going to fill the role that we all thought the Skrulls were- which is, they will be Loki's "army" to invade the Nine Realms, including Earth. thats what I think his plan is- to take over all 9 realms, and when it's earth's turn, Loki underestimates Earth's champions. Remember at the end of Thor he discovered, to his dismay, that he is Laufey's son. He is going to embrace his heritage and use the combined power of the cosmic cube and the frost giants to invade earth. maybe he promises them control of Asgard in exchange for helping him.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 5/22/2011, 3:14 PM
Nice. Rodimus wins todays No-Prize. He loves you and I love Felicia Day. And with green hair? I'll be in my bunk.

If Ross DOES make an appearance in one of these movies, I hope it's a scene of Fury dressing him down for being such a piss-poor, miserable excuse for a general and telling him to stay the hell out of the way. It helps that William Hurt's a scumbag and Sam Jackson's The Man. (Well, The Other Man after Stan The Man.)
CherryBomb - 5/22/2011, 3:20 PM

What I don't get is how do they know people are "UNCREDITED" if the film and the closing credits aren't even out yet? it's ridiculous.
Checkmate - 5/22/2011, 3:32 PM
Sounds like a Felicia fanboy's wet dream.
I'd love the inclusion of SWORD though, maybe we could see a Spiderwoman movie soon?
Rodimus9 - 5/22/2011, 3:33 PM
@cherry-I think they are considered uncredited until they have an official role.
level1paladin - 5/22/2011, 3:34 PM
Felicia could star as a leper and I'd love her.
Rodimus9 - 5/22/2011, 3:41 PM
Stan's Avengers cameo....WARNING!!! SPOILER!!

Having S.W.O.R.D. in the movie would be epic, even as a cameo, for what it would mean for the future of the Marvel movie universe.
Chewtoy - 5/22/2011, 4:32 PM
I take it with a grain of salt, but it's possible... It wouldn't have to mean SWORD though (whatever that is)... It'd work just fine to establish her as a regular SHIELD agent first.
SageMode - 5/22/2011, 4:47 PM
IMDB? The same site that confirmed Jensen Ackles as Captain America in CA: TFA?.............

Let the Frost Giant be Ymir.
