Looks like Ming-Na Wen will finally get that chance, reports Crave On Line.
She says her role as Melinda May in one of the most anticipated new shows of the fall season, Marvel’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D, is ethnically neutral.
“There was no agenda for them to hire an Asian woman,” said Ming-Na.
“It’s definitely not a character that is in the classic Marvel comic books, but she was one of the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. For me, I think because she’s the cavalry, she’s experienced, she has done a lot of kick-ass missions, there’s got to be something that caused her to retreat and caused her not to want to be in the field anymore. She’d rather just have an office job and I think (character Phil) Coulson knows her too well, so there’s some history with them that I love and hope to explore”
