News has just come out that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be adding Sons of Anarchy actress, Drea De Matteo, to the future cast. Matteo played the up and down character of Wendy on SoA but since that has ended she’s been able to move on to find other projects. Now, the Emmy winning actress joins S.H.I.E.L.D. as Karla Faye Gideon, a villain who will team up with Cal, Skye’s father, to try and take down S.H.I.E.L.D.
In the comics, the character of Karla Faye Gideon has ties to Daredevil but no powers or real major impact. She’s more of a side character but apparently on the television show they will be adapting her to be a “gifted woman” which means she might now have powers.
It will be great to see Matteo on another show so quickly and she should definitely be an awesome villain going forward.
Lady Sif, played by Jaimie Alexander, gets love from a lot of fans of the MCU, which was a great way to get Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. some extra publicity in its first season when she stopped by for the 15th episode back in season 1 titled “Yes Men”.
It turns out the Asgardian will be finding her way back to Earth for another appearance on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. very soon in the second episode of the show when it returns to television in a couple of weeks. The episode will air on March 10th and will have Sif lose her short-term memory and forget who Thor is while taking on a super powered bad guy as well.
The episode sounds like a lot of fun and it will be nice to have S.H.I.E.L.D. back on the air soon!
