We Can Be Heroes

Get Introduced To The Agents of SHIELD Through Their ID Badges



[View All on One Page]

Now that Joss Whedon’s Agents of SHIELD has been picked up, the ABC marketing department is in full-on superhero mode. They recently posted their new field agents (read: cast members) identification badges online, giving us a few, not relevant details. There’s also a viral website you may want to keep a close eye on.

    Darn, I was CONVINCED that QR-code was going to go somewhere.

    So the series will very obviously be mostly about Skye’s tense relationship with SHIELD and her reluctant entry into the government team.

    I’m excited about the show, and I think Joss can take a canned plot and make it wonderful, but WOW does that plot seem canned from the get-go.

    You cannot give me enough of this stuff, nom nom! Have I ever said that I can’t wait for this show? I definitely can’t wait!!!

    Yeah, me too – I’m glad I’m not the only one who checked. :)

    So, I wonder if it’s significant that everyone except Coulson’s badge numbers start with the letter A followed by six or seven numbers, while his stars with SJK followed by numbers and letters…

  • cloudywolf

    Rather irrelevant, but any one else notice that Jemma Simmons’ card has her hair colour as blonde, when she’s nothing of the sort? Odd.

  • cloudywolf

    Oh ye of little faith. My only concern is that the majority of the case are super young. Sure, we have Coulson and Melinda May but I can’t help but feel the cast would benefit from having characters spread a little more evenly across the age graph. With a government organisation, particularly one that would surely require such specialised training as SHIELD, one would imagine their agents and employees would be at least in the 30+ age bracket.

  • cloudywolf

    Coulson’s card was issued in 2011 while the others were all issued in 2013. Could be as simple as that? But I like your way of thinking :)

    I’m super stoked for this, but yeah, that was kind of my impression upon seeing the main cast. They all look so…similar. Hopefully the personalities with balance well and we’ll get some more older characters as well.

    And Sitwell. I really do want Sitwell.

  • cloudywolf

    They really do look so similar, right? I know that the cast has J. August Richards, and Ming-Na Chen and one of the other actresses have Asian backgrounds, but the cast as a whole looks a little bland. I’m guessing the writing and acting will remedy that though.

    Although when you think of it, bland is good for what’s supposed to be a semi-secret government organisation. :)

    Yeah, I noticed the dates after I posted the above, but I’m still going with the “something’s afoot”, just ’cause it’s more fun.

    Secret Jedi Klone? Yeah, I know it’s actually spelled ‘clone’, but still… :)

    Maybe, but bland–or, well, blending in– means different things on different missions.

    Yes on the Sitwell! I really hope that actor shows up as well. I want more Coulson & Sitwell shenanigans.
