Avengers Gets Kevin Pennington

Latest actor to join the growing cast

A curious bit of news has come out via Cinematical that the Avengers film has cast Kevin Pennington to the role of a SHIELD agent named Wendell Vaughn, whom some fans may know better as the character Quasar. Pennington isn't a well known name at this point with only a couple of things under his belt that are due out but with the way Marvel is continually looking to expand on its characters and to try going for fresh faces for small characters that can be utilized later, it's not much of a surprise. Cinematical does note that we've heard the name before back when Ant-Man was being talked about as the man for that role.

In addition to that, some potential fun for those in the New York City area should be coming up in the next few months as word is getting out that:

During principal filming, SHIELD will be out in full force in NYC to recruit and find new members. Cast members on hand include Samuel L. Jackson (Director Nick Fury), Clark Gregg (Agent Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill) and Kevin Pennington (Agent Wendell Vaughn). Fans will get the chance to meet the stars and get their photograph taken with them at the event.

 Man, this movie is going to have a shite load of SHEILD agents....  O.o

This is now the rumored SHIELD movie.  Also: Apparently everybody and their mother/father is a SHIELD agent... Quasar now? Save something for the sequel...

pretty sure most of these are going to be pretty close to cameos or one or two lines and they do help spawn a new direction for Marvel to be able to take with their movies, like space by introducing characters like Carol Danvers and Wendall Vaughn it opens the marvel Universe to the Kree,Skrulls, Brood, Thanos and the Inhumans. Awesome , i think this is great forward thinking on Marvels part, and I mainly want to see the Gaurdians of the Galaxy, and Rocket Racoon.

Yes, I was thinking Kree, Thanos and Inhumans as well.  Operation: Galactic Storm was a pretty cool storyline, for instance, but can the Shi'ar be used?

"Also: Apparently everybody and their mother/father is a SHIELD agent... Quasar now?"


Wendell Vaughn/Quasar has been originally a SHIELD Agent since his first appearance back in 1978.

Agree with Loco. Marvel seems to be laying all the seeds to take the Marvel U into outer space, LOVE IT.

If they go into space there are going to Skrulls!

Man I hope there are Skrulls.

 Ah, so it IS Maria Hill that they cast!!  Nice!!

@Satyrquaze Good to know. I read Marvel Comics in the '80's but really don't remember him til the early '90's...

You think if this does well, someone will finally release Whedon's "Cabin in the Woods" movie? I'd love to see that one day.
