Now that we’ve met new SHIELD bad boy Agent Grant Ward (head over here if you missed it), let’s meet the geeks that will be supplying him with his gadgets. Or smashing his gadgets, as the case may be.
The latest character promo for Joss Whedon’s upcoming ABC show “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” gives us a little insight into the sure-to-be fan favorite duo of Fitz and Simmons, aka Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge. I wonder if Whedon and company purposefully decided to introduce geeks with an accent (both De Caestecker and Henstridge are UK actors), but it sure gives the role an extra little kick.
Find out more about Fitz and Simmons below. Then check into “Agents of SHIELD” when it premieres in the Fall on ABC. Whedon developed, co-wrote, and directed the pilot episode. And of course, the show will be all over Comic Con this weekend for those of you attending the annual mecca of nerd.
