Apparently not an agent of SHIELD, the character of Skye is said to be the sixth and final regular to be recruited for Joss Whedon‘s upcoming pilot.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nashville‘s Chloe Bennet has won the role of
a confident woman who is slightly obsessed with superhero culture and the shadow organizations that exist within it. She’s edgy and can out-talk anyone with her unflappable nature.
An edgy talker? Whedon can do those.
It’s interesting that an outsider is amongst the regulars. Will her arc see Skye end up being recruited? Or will she forever be that outside voice, maybe even a thorn in the organisation’s side?
All things being fair, SHIELD will get rolling on ABC in the autumn.
