Even with the recognizable names of a resurrected Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, and 'ER' vet Ming-Na as an all-new character, ABC and Joss Whedon's forthcoming 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series still remains something of a mystery. Comprised of a team of all-new characters, that mystery hasn't abated as the 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series has officially added two new names to its list So, who in the Marvel universe might they be playing and where could we have seen them before?
We live in a fascinating media age with an even more promising future, as last week brought the news trifecta that 2015 would see the releases of 'The Avengers 2,' 'Justice League,' and 'Star Wars - Episode 7.' Should then, we have any kernel of doubt that Joss Whedon and ABC's forthcoming 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series could be any less real?
