I just finished adding a ton of recent appearance photos as well as screencaps & stills from Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD to the gallery.
Congratulations to the cast & crew! Can’t wait to see what is in store for us the rest of the season.
“The Bus” isn’t gonna be stopping anytime soon, seeing as ABC announced on Thursday that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been granted a full-season (aka 22 episode) pick-up.
A follow-up of sorts to Marvel movies such as The Avengers and Iron Man 3, the freshman series premiered to 12.1 million total viewers and delivered TV’s highest-rated drama debut in nearly four years, with a 4.7 rating in the coveted 18-49 demo.
At last tally, the adventure-drama did 7.9 mil and a 2.9, edging out NCIS for the No. 2 spot at 8 o’clock.
TVLine readers gave the series premiere an average grade of “B+,” and in a poll this week gave the season-to-date a “B.”
To date, S.H.I.E.L.D. ranks as the No. 1 new show of the 2013-14 TV season among the 18-49 demo (averaging a 4.0 rating that swells to 5.7 with Live+3 DVR playback factored in).
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 8/7c.
Skye is not a fan of her boxing training with Grant Ward.
In the trailer for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we’re introduced to Skye, played by Chloe Bennet, a young hacker who is saying some questionable things about S.H.I.E.L.D. and their motives – only to be found and brought in by S.H.I.E.L.D. themselves.
I spoke to Bennet to find out a bit more about Skye and her perspective on living in a world with superheroes and how the actress, recently seen on Nashville, feels about joining the Marvel universe and working with Joss Whedon.
IGN: Based on the trailer, it seems like your character initially has some skepticism, to say the least, about S.H.I.E.L.D.
Chloe Bennet: She does!
IGN: So what is her reaction when she’s caught by them?
Chloe: I can’t say much about it. But I can say that she is this superhero-obsessed girl, in a way where she’s just in awe of it, but she’s also skilled in the sense that she can kind of get herself into these situations. You know, I think she’s going to enjoy the ride, just like myself. I think she’ll have fun.
IGN: You say she’s superhero obsessed and obviously the show’s about normal people in a world with superheroes. S.H.I.E.L.D. can be a little more jaded, I guess, but is Skye still basically going, “Oh my God! These people are really out there!”?
Bennet: I think she would be more one to play it a little bit cool, but then have those geek-out moments. She’s not quite a cosplay girl, she’s not exactly a fangirl, but she gets really excited — but it’s in here [tapping chest], just like all of us about the show, I think.
GN: What does she make of Agent Coulson?
Bennet: I think her and Coulson could get along. You will have to watch and see how they got on, but yeah… [Laughs]
IGN: And how is it working with Joss on the show?
Bennet: Joss is terrible.
IGN: [Laughs] Everyone says that.
Bennet: He’s really stupid and not talented. No! He is absolutely amazing, and it’s just a pleasure to go to work. Attitude reflects leadership, and he has such a great attitude. So does Jed and Maurissa. It’s really just incredible going to work every day.
