Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Introduces Super Whendonesque New Characters


Two new members of the team for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. have been officially introduced. Meet Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge)– the quirky pair of scientechies behind all of the gadgets and gizmos a-plenty at S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ. People have already been drawing parallels between Fitz and Topher (the tech wunderkind played by Fran Kranz on Dollhouse), and between Simmons and BVTS‘s Willow (Alyson Hannigan). Do you see the similarity? The banter is strong with both of them, but that is also a hallmark of Joss Whedon‘s artistic touch.

Either way, they look awesome. Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. can’t come out soon enough.

    Fitz and Simmons. How many Fitzsimmons jokes will there be? At least shippers won’t have to think too hard for a catchy ship moniker.

    I’m just gonna ship the timeslot of this show, thanks…

    Without wanting to do that thing of second guessing shows no one has yet seen, I’d love for there to be no romantic tension between these two, y’know? I hope there’s not.

    There’s nothing wrong with the friendship where one character secretly pines after the other (god knows, many of us have been there). But it;s totally overplayed on TV.

    I’ve love these two just to be platonic science bros. And then I can ship the hell out of them in comfort.
