The guys over at TVLine have somehow managed to obtain character breakdowns of five of the principal characters from Joss Whedon's upcoming TV show S.H.I.E.L.D., and it appears that when he said it will revolve around "all new characters" he wasn't kidding. Not only are these guys brand new to the established Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe, we don't recognise a soul from the comic continuity either. Still, in Joss we trust. Read on for details...
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.
