With production on the fourth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now only a couple of weeks out, we’re starting to learn more about what we can expect going into this next season. As we saw at the end of season three, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. officially introduced Life Model Decoys (LMDs) into the Marvel Cinematic Universe via Dr. Holden Radcliffe (John Hannah) and Aida (the show’s answer to Jarvis, essentially). So it isn’t entirely surprising to hear that they’ll be taking on a bigger part going into season four. According to TV Line, the sister site of Deadline, S.H.I.E.L.D. is currently looking to cast the recurring role of Aida. They also reveal that the series is looking to cast a pair of Hispanic brothers. Per their report, one of the brothers is “always the most dangerous person in the room”, while the other is paralyzed and in a wheelchair.
What is going to take up more A-plot on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this season — tracking down Daisy, or the LMDs? —Maura
This much I can tell you: LMDs are happening. Specifically, the ABC series at this time is looking to cast the recurring role of Aida, a “very attractive” robot (because after all, why make a homely one?) who moves about quite naturally but speaks a bit formally, like Iron Man’s Jarvis. Also to be introduced in Season 4: a pair of Latino brothers, one of whom is always the most dangerous person in the room, the other paralyzed in a wheelchair.
Although the addition of a wheelchair bound cast member isn’t too shocking, given that S.H.I.E.L.D. does have a good track record with making it a point to diversify the cast, it is nice to see the series bringing in a disabled character. Who these brothers turn out to be and what brings them into the story? Well, that is left to be seen.
For now, you can check out the first three seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on Netflix now to get all caught up before season four premieres on September 20th!
