Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) will lead S.H.I.E.L.D. the TV series but who will be his team? The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that ER’s Ming-Na will play Agent Melinda May in Joss Whedon’s pilot for the series.
What is S.H.I.E.L.D. (for those unfamiliar)? From ABC Studios, the project is based on the long-running comic created by Jack Kirby and revolves around the secret military law enforcement agency dubbed S.H.I.E.L.D., which stands for Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate.
Agent Melinda May is described as a soulful soldier but has been damaged by her time in combat. Agent May is also a top notch pilot.
As for the Ming-Na she is no stranger to the genre as she has appeared on both Stargate Universe and Eureka.

When are we going to start hearing about some of the "capes" that (better) appear in the show?  How 'bout villains?  I hope this isn't going to be Men In Black with supervillains.  On the plus side, Yay! Marvel TV show!

She is a lovely woman and excellent actor. Happy to see her in the mix.

Mentioning creator Jack Kirby makes me feel sad that he isn't around to see all the great movies being made with characters he helped create. On one youtube video doc they said he wouldn't even walk into a toy store because there were so many superhero toys made from his stuff he didn't get any acknowledgment or money from.

Ming Na is a good actress and anythings got to be better than poorly developed role she played on that dud Stargate Universe.

Is there a tentative/planned premiere date?  I know it's too far out for a specific day, but are we talking Fall 2013? 2014?
