It was made clear before season 3 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. started that the show is shifting it’s focus to the Secret Warriors. With Quake (Chloe Bennet) as the leader of the group, we figured to get a few added to her team throughout this season.
So far, the Secret Warriors only powered member is Quake herself, although it seems like Joey (Juan Pablo Raba) is well on his way to becoming a member. We’ve questioned who will join the team before and have hoped that some of the Secret Warriors from the comics make an appearance.
Based on a new combined report from Point of Geeks and That Hashtag Show, Yo Yo Rodriguez aka Slingshot has been cast for this season. They are reporting that Natalia Cordova-Buckley (McFarland, USA) will be playing the speedster this season in a recurring role.
We are running this as a rumor strictly because neither Point of Geeks or That Hashtag Show are known for breaking casting scoops. Hopefully, a trade or Marvel themselves confirms this soon. If it is true, it’s a great step to bring in members of the Secret Warriors.
Are you excited for the addition of Slingshot to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? What other Secret Warriors do you want to see join the cast? Share your thoughts below.
Episode 3×09 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air next Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
