So far, it seems that one of the criticisms about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is that the characters are too cliched and vanilla – in all meanings of the latter word. Not a problem: The great thing about teams is that there are a lot of bodies – and more than a few of them can be sacrificed. And we all know that Whedon loves to (sort of) kill characters off…
TIP: Don’t hold on to any weak links. If the fanbase isn’t warming to a character within a few episodes – be it snarky blogger Skye (Chloe Bennet) or snarky agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) – then take him/her out of the equation for good.
Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) seem to be fan-approved, so there’s already a foundation there. And it’s fortunate that Marvel went with relative unknowns for the younger cast: we won’t feel much loss if (when?) they’re gone.
