Spoilers and Speculations

Spoilers for the upcoming season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

“Every week it’s not going to be some new hero. There can be a device; there can be a mystery. There are so many aspects to what’s happened since everybody in the world found out that there’s a superhero team and there were aliens that invaded New York, and we want to be able to change it up every week. We want to be able to deal with every aspect — the spy stuff, the hero stuff, the heartfelt stuff.” - Joss

'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Adds Ruth Negga In Recurri

'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Adds Ruth Negga In Recurring Role

It looks like that huge S.H.I.E.L.D. plane could be getting a bit more crowded—metaphorically, at least. In addition to the six principle cast members, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is amassing a strong cast of supporting and recurring characters—a cast that now includes "World War Z" actress Ruth Negga.

Black Film has reported Negga has signed on for a recurring arc in Marvel Studio's first foray into live-action television, although the details of her role remain a mystery. She joins Ian Hart, Ron Glass, and David Conrad as a member of the show's expanded cast.

This comes as great news for fans desiring a bit more diversity in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Negga's an Ethiopian-born Irish actress with an impressive resume including starring alongside Samuel L. Jackson in 2012's "The Samaritan" and portraying iconic Bond songstress Shirley Bassey in her TV biopic. Comic book fans might recognize Negga from her time on the British superhero comedy/drama "Misfits."

And I know this is usually where we start trying to guess who Negga is playing, but that seems a bit premature. Considering that it looks like Maria Hill is the sole character in the pilot that's been pulled from the Marvel Comics, odds are Negga's playing an original character with no prior ties to the Marvel U. Now, if the pilot airs and it includes more than one Easter egg to longtime Marvel readers, and if the winking trend continues on into episodes two and three, then we can start firing out guesses at to who Negga is playing. The only thing we really have to go on is the fact that her character wasn't listed as a S.H.I.E.L.D. science officer like the previous three recurring characters. Could she be a villain or a new super being?

As for when she'll show up, our best guess would be sometime after episode four. A recently published article visited the show's set while they were busy filming the fourth episode, so if this casting announcement was made in a timely fashion, I'd wager that she'll appear in episode five or six.

"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." premieres on ABC on September 24th.
