Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Pilot Photos: Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill Returns, and More!
Though we’re still sworn to secrecy on all the details from Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ pilot screened at Comic-Con 2013, a few of the Joss Whedon-directed ‘Avengers‘ tie-in series have come to light. More than Cobie Smulders‘ confirmed return however, we’ve got a brand new set of photos from Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ pilot to tide eager fans over until the September 24 premiere!
In addition to Smulders’ official reveal in the pilot episode, the new photos of ABC’s Marvel series highlight the fighting skills of Agent Melinda May (Ming Na), along with the connection between mysterious “Rising Tide” hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet) and ‘Angel’ alum J. August Richards‘ as-yet-unidentified heroic character.
We also see a few more glimpses at Agents Leo Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) and Gemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), the subjects of Marvel’s most recent behind-the-scenes ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ featurette.
While we wait for further looks at the series, Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ features a cast that also includes Clark Gregg’s resurrected Agent Phil Coulson, and Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward. Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson, previously stated that he expected to be involved in some small capacity, while Sam Rockwell is game to reprise his ‘Iron Man’ role of Justin Hammer, by his own word.
