Lucy Lawless is joining Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. TV Guide has the scoop.


I wish she could play Xena on the show.

[titles always look weird ending with S.H.I.E.L.D. with those double periods]

And with that Comic-Con week begins... (Well, there were also the NerdHQ panels with Joss, Nathan and Alan but that was during the weekend...)

Awesome ! she was so good in Spartacus (and everything actually).
Ermagerd really? I can't wait to see who she's playing ... hopefully someone amazingly badass (though as Parks & Rec proved, she can also play nice and normal. She really has quite the range). Also, this means that now SHIELD (and the entire Marvel Movieverse) has a direct link to BSG!
Please be Captain Marvel.
Oh that's nice.



So much scenes with Coulson, yes, please? Please let her be badass. Not that she can be anything but. (yes, I was into Xena so bad before I found Buffy).

Ok. Done now. Will pretend I didn't see this so I will gasp in pleasant surprise when she appears on my screen *cough*kickassbackstory*cough*
She and Mark Ruffalo are both hardcore environmental activists. This makes me happy. Plus its good news for Agents of SHIELD.

Also, Domina!

I know it would never happen, but... to me, "Joss Whedon writes Xena" is like "Da Vinci paints Marilyn Monroe."
If you want to see her more than once then forget about her being a real super-hero. On a show like this that sort of character will come and go quickly if they appear at all.
I'm so excited about this! I hope whatever character she plays gets to stick around for a while.
This is so awesome!
She has many skills.
It was so fun to see her in Veronica Mars! I still haven't gotten 'round to watching "Zena" - most do that sometime.
I'm going to have to watch AoS again! I'm rewatching "Xena" now. I had forgotten that the show had a musical episode in season 3, before BtVS. Although the writing is so much better on BtVS, I loved how much confidence Xena has, compared with Buffy.

Forgive those who would harm you,
Do good for those who hate.
Forgive, if not forget,
I know it's not too late.
Forgive me and you'll discover too,
That the love of your love is you.

-- Xena, "The Bitter Suite"

(Not bad for the greatest mass murderer in history)
Maybe she'll play Wonder Woman on the show! Oh, wait...
