Omigod Stop EVERYTHING: Lucy Lawless Is Joining The Cast of Agents of SHIELD



Did you come out of the full first season of Agents of SHIELD feeling that the show, while flawed, had a lot of great potential that it could build on next year? Were you expecting “great potential” to mean Lucy effin’ Lawless? Because that’s apparently what it means.

While we don’t know how many episodes she’ll be on tap for or what kind of role she will play on the show’s second season (please say she gets to spar with Melinda May please say she gets to spar with Melinda May), TV Guide has confirmed the casting news, so at the very least we know it’s legit.

Nerdist put forth the idea that Lawless could possibly be cast as an Asgardian, and we are 100% behind that. Heck, can we make her new!Thor? Agents of SHIELD can totally do that, right? It’s not like they need Snortblat!Thor for Age of Ultron or whatever, right? Asgardian Lucy Lawless is bigger than literally anything else the Marvel Cinematic Universe is working on right now anyway. She is bigger than all of us. So say we all.
