Meet Agents of SHIELD’s Melinda May

Ming Na Wen in Agents of SHIELD Profile

Check out a new character profile for Joss Whedon’s “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”, this time focusing on former “ER” and “Stargate Universe” star Ming-Na Wen’s Melinda May.

I remember when they were casting this character, and I think it wasn’t supposed to be an Asian woman. I also think this is the first time Wen has played an asskicking character, but I could be wrong. Her fighting style kind of reminds me of Scarlett Johansson’s The Black Widow, using speed and athleticism instead of brute strength.

Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.

“Agents of SHIELD” stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Chloe Bennet, and is set for ABC this September 24th.
