The actors will portray Agent Gemma Simmons and Agent Leo Fitz, who both came up through the academy together and spend a majority of their time with each other. Don't expect any romance to come out of this duo, since their relationship is said to be on more of a sibling level, according to the casting breakdown from last month. Gemma is said to be a science expert, with Leo specializing in technology. Neither character is based on an existing Marvel character.
Joss Whedon will direct, and is writing the pilot script with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. The writers will also serve as executive producers alongside Jeph Loeb and Jeffrey Bell. It isn't known when production will begin on this highly-anticipated pilot.
