Ming-Na Wen over Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Er zijn nog weinig details bekend over Marvel‘s aankomende televisieserie Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. en we zullen waarschijnlijk niet veel meer te weten komen tot de première aankomende herfst. Actrice Ming-Na Wen, die de rol van Agent Melinda May speelt, sprak over de serie, haar personage en haar verwachtingen over de reacties van de fans. Ze vertelde:

“I think she definitely honors her job and she takes it very seriously, and she has a lot of skills to reach level 7. 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.”

Over de invloed van Joss Whedon (Avengers 2) zei ze:

“We definitely try very hard to take what he started in the writing and directing of the pilot episode, and he will be there to guide us indefinitely. He’s got an office in the S.H.I.E.L.D. building so he’ll be there. But we’re also in really good hands with his brother Jed and Maurissa, and our team they’re amazing.”

Over wat de fans kunnen verwachten van de serie:

“I think for the die hard fans who know Joss Whedon’s work as well as the Marvel series and all the movies, I think the will have a certain expectation which we will be able to deliver as far as sense of humor, as far as the comradery of the characters and the action. But I think the one big surprise is because it’s now been translated for television, it’s just the continuous development of these characters on a weekly basis and hopefully they’ll be able to be more invested in these characters and what happens to them.”

Ten slotte sprak ze over het idee dat Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. personages zouden opduiken in Avengers 2:

“I don’t know, wouldn’t that be awesome? I can always dream.”

Clark Gregg keert weer terug in zijn rol van Agent Phil Coulson van Marvel’s films terwijl hij een kleine geselecteerde groep Agents verzamelt waaronder: Brett Dalton als Agent Grant Ward, Iain De Caestecker als Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge als Agent Jemma Simmons, Ming-Na Wen als Agent Melinda May en Chloe Bennet als de mysterieuze computer hacker Skye.
