SHIELD assemble! Buffy creator and Avengers director Joss Whedon has cast Nashville star Chloe Bennet as his final SHIELD agent, Skye.

Skye is described in the leaked casting notes as “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.”

Bit of Faith there in the overconfidence, perhaps? Expect to see the SHIELD pilot on ABC in Autumn 2013.
