Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.': Meet Ming-Na’s Melinda May!
Just because Comic-Con 2013 has come and gone, and we’ve finally seen Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ pilot, you didn’t think the preview goodies would stop there, did you? Following video introductions to Agents Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), Leo Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) and Gemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), it’s time to meet Ming Na’s ass-kicking Agent Melinda May!
IGN first posted the video introducing the character, whom Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) first recruits to the team to “drive the bus,” rather than call upon her tremendous fighting skills. With the way things go in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, May is soon called back into action to investigate J. August Richards’ mysterious strongman, and even gets tossed around a bit for her trouble!
“She is mysterious, quiet, smart, yet the girl can fight,” says Ming-Na of the character. “She believes in protecting this country, and she believes that S.H.I.E.L.D. is the way to succeed.”
While we wait for further looks at the series, Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ also features among its cast Chloe Bennet as mysterious hacker Skye, while ‘How I Met Your Mother‘ star Cobie Smulders was recently confirmed to reprise her ‘Avengers‘ role as Agent Maria Hill. Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson, previously stated that he expected to be involved with the show in some small capacity, while Sam Rockwell is game to reprise his ‘Iron Man’ role of Justin Hammer, by his own word.
