Despite Lizzy Caplan being apart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe via the upcoming short: Item 47 (you can read our review here), the actress says she’s too busy to be a recurring character on the forthcoming television series.
Here’s what she said during a press junket for her upcoming comedy 3, 2, 1… Frankie Goes Boom:
I can’t really…I have my own show so I will not be a regular on the Marvel ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ show. But I’m glad people are so excited about that. I think it’s a good idea… Maybe I could do some little thing.
Yes, this might not be Eath-shattering megaton news, but do you guys think she should be a regular on the show? Is the fact that she might not have a big part to play a potential mistake? I don’t know, I honestly think she’s not essential by any stretch of the imagination. Perhaps she could at least be a soft-recuring character similar to how shows like Supernatural or Once Upon a Time handle their tiertiary but consistent guests?
But what are your thoughts abou the upcoming show and the future cast of characters therein? Are you excited? Are you underwhelmed? Is it too early to have an opinion? Sound off with your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.
