According to Deadline, Ming-Na Wen will star in Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot for ABC. She will play Agent Melinda May.

Here’s how the character is described:


“Soulful and slightly damaged by her combat experiences, Melinda is an ace pilot, a weapons expert and a soldier who can — and has — gone beyond the call of duty.”


The pilot is being co-written and directed by Joss Whedon, writer/director of The Avengers movie.


Ming-Na — whose credits include E.R. and such science-fiction shows as Eureka and Stargate Universe — joins the previously announced Clark Gregg in the cast. Gregg will reprise his role of Agent Phil Coulson.
