It’s time to geek out, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D fans! It looks like lead actress, Chloe Bennet, is just as big a Marvel fan as we are, and she’s got the ideal pick for who think should guest star on an episode on AoS!
When Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with the actress, we asked her which Marvel character she thought would fit right in on the show. Her answer?
“I think Robert Downey Jr. would fit really really well. Yes, Iron Man.” Chloe went on to make a strong case for the addition of the multi-billionaire playboy by adding “We did mention that I am technically a consultant on the show and not technically an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Iron Man is only a consultant as well. Me and him could go off and work together. We’re both really good with computers.”
Pretty excited by the idea, the Chicago native then asked “Can you put the word out to get that happening? Pull your strings.”
Of course we’re always down for a crossover between Avengers and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., much like the tonight’s episode, “The Well.” According to the ABC synopsis, “In the aftermath of Thor’s destruction, Coulson and the Agents of SHIELD pick up the pieces — one of which threatens to destroy a member of the team.” Seeing how this takes place after the events of Thor 2, this sounds thrilling!
While some of us out there are probably wondering whether or not we will be missing anything if we haven’t seen Thor: The Dark World, Chloe tells us she thinks “it’s a good idea to go and see Thor because it’s such a great movie, but I don’t think you have to, absolutely watch it to understand the episode.”
You hear that, guys? There are no Thor spoilers in this episode. We’re actually a little happy and sad about that…
Catch Chloe Bennet on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1, Episode 8 (“The Well”), which airs tonight, Tuesday, November 19 on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
Do you agree with Chloe’s pick of Iron Man for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or would you choose someone else? Sound off in the comments below!
