“It’s a new world. Nothing has been the same since the Battle of New York. These are the agents that work the cases that S.H.I.E.L.D. hasn’t classified. When you’re dealing with the strange and the mysterious, you need a hand-picked team that can get the job done no matter the circumstances.”
The first adventure of Level 7 of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division (“someone really wanted our initials to spell out ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.'”) airs on Tuesday! THIS Tuesday! COULSON LIVES!!
I am INSANELY excited about this and we’ll be having recaps here on the CB because I expect I am going to want to talk about it Quite A Lot.
These are our intrepid heroes:
Skye (Chloe Bennet) – computer hacker.
Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) – biochemist.
Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) – weapons technology.
Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) – fearless leader.
Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) – pilot and weapons expert.
Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) – combat and espionage.
And yesterday a new recurring character was announced, to be played by Ruth Negga:
No information yet on what her role will be, but I like her already.
And Jemma and Leo are NOT a couple, but look how cute they are!
D’awwwwww! And I LOVE Jemma’s Converse. And her magic colour-changing hair (what?).
Apart from Clark Gregg, the only cast member I’ve seen in anything else is Ming-Na Wen, whose character (Camile Wray) I adored in Stargate Universe (and I never realised before that Camile’s partner was played by Reiko Aylesworth! I thought she looked familiar) but they look good together. Although let’s face it, this show could just be about Coulson and I would still watch it. And Ward is described as “a one-man ninja, or a Swiss Army Knife” who has no people skills and struggles to work as part of a team, which sounds…. familiar, hmmm ;-).
There’s a fun website here (from where I shamelessly stole the quote at the top of the page):
It sometimes takes a while to load, so you’ll probably click back to another tab, and then it will start to play music REALLY LOUDLY and scare the life out of you. So watch out for that.
LEVEL 7 IN T-MINUS FOUR DAYS!!!
