Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot has added two more agents.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker will join Ming-Na and Clark Gregg in the ABC pilot.
The project from ABC Studios is based on Marvel Comics’ secret intelligence organization that has appeared in countless titles including Iron Man, Captain America and The Ultimates since being introduced in the 1960s. The military law-enforcement agency’s moniker stands for Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate, which also has evolved over time in the comics.
Henstridge will play science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons, while De Caestecker will play Agent Leo Fitz, a technology guru. The duo spend all their time together — mostly bickering — and are masters of their respective fields at a remarkably young age.
