She's not that powerful and she's not Binary anymore of course she's not a SHIELD agent anymore either.
According to the tag line on her comic, she is "Earth's Mightiest Hero".

Which, really is the only way such a shows could be done to avoid interfering with The Aveangers sequel, plus the upcoming sequels for the other movis which contributed to The Avengers, some of which (particularly Iron Man and Thor) are likely to feature SHIELD.

Too old.
Which, the actress or my continuing fascination with the short-runned, long-cancelled Wonderfalls?

Dhavernas is 34, only three years older than Dushku. Hardly seems too old to play an Air Force major.

I still think Jeri Ryan could pull off Carol Danvers Saw her on Leverage, she's still pretty frickin' hot. Although I suppose I could see THIS happening.

Both.

Also people need to give up on the hope that Whedon is going to fill the entire cast of this show or Avengers 2 with actors from his previous efforts like Firefly or Dollhouse.

I would be disappointed if he didn't use a couple of them in some capacity, though. People are fans of his stable of actors for a reason: They're awesome.

She-Hulk and Moonstone might disagree with that.

She's a little past the age to play a superhero, but yeah, she would've been a great choice in her prime. (I also realized recently that she looks almost exactly like She-Ra, Princess of Power. A shame they didn't do a live-action She-Ra movie ten years ago.)

Although I suppose I could see THIS happening.

Well, they should use her new Captain Marvel costume, which is a lot more practical and classy than the bathing-suit-and-sash thingy, actually looking like something a military officer would be willing to wear.

Not the entire cast, of course; each new series he's done has added more awesome actors to the stable of Whedon vets. But most filmmakers and TV producers have actors they return to over and over because they work well together. There are a lot of repeat Whedon performers -- Eliza Dushku, Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Adam Baldwin, Gina Torres, Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, Alan Tudyk, Mark Sheppard (although that hardly counts, since everyone uses him every chance they get). I'm sure he'll pick the best cast for this project, as he always does, and won't just populate it with familiar faces; Firefly's regulars included four actors who'd been guests on Buffy or Angel, three of whom had played recurring roles, but Dollhouse's regular cast was all-new except for Dushku, though it included prominent guests such as Acker, Denisof, and Tudyk. Denisof was also in The Avengers -- he played Loki's Chitauri "handler," so his was both the first and last voice heard in the film, I believe -- and Whedon vets Enver Gjokaj and Ashley Johnson had bit parts in it.

So yeah, we'll see new faces, but we'll probably see familiar ones too, at least as guests.

Somehow I doubt if any superpowered SHIELD agents will be on the show as regular.

They aren't being pushed as Marvel's premier heroine.

Actually, I think it's the other way around, at least with three of them. Summer Glau of course had a guest episode prior, but I think Nathan Fillion and Gina Torres' recurring roles came after Firefly - late in Seasons 7 and 4 of Buffy and Angel respectively. Adam Baldwin's role on Angel Season 5 definitely came afterwards.

Although it is interesting to note that Nathan Fillion did audition for the role of Angel in Buffy's early days. He didn't get far enough along to even meet Whedon, though.

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

Cool news. Depending on the focus and who gets cast, I'll be interested in watching this. I do wonder if SLJ will be involved any way despite the show being "autonomous."
