We are only a few days away from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s season 5 premiere. To hype up fans for the upcoming release, Marvel released the first 17 minutes of the show online. This was shortly followed by pictures from the main cast, including one of them celebrating its 100th episode. That is not all, as we also have a new casting announcement for a Disney actress joining the series. Actress Dove Cameron released the following video on Instagram with a cameo from Clark Gregg to announce her involvement with the show.
The video naturally does not reveal much and when we can expect her to make an appearance. She is most well-known for her role as Mal, the daughter of Maleficent in the Disney Channel’s Descendants films. Cameron has also worked with Marvel before, as she voiced Gwen Stacy a.k.a Spider-Gwen in Ultimate Spider-Man vs. the Sinister 6. Even if her hairstyle does seem inspired by the character in a way, it is unclear who she will be playing and how large of a role she might have.
On a side note, we might finally know what the alien creatures are that attack the SHIELD agents in the trailers and in the upcoming premiere. ComicBookMovie.com did their research and figured out that the insectoid aliens are actually from the comics and go by the name of Vrellnexians. These creatures made their debut in Thor #212 back in 1973. The show has managed to bring in some rather obscure comic book characters and it looks like we might meet some new alien races from the MCU in the show.
Who do you think Cameron is playing? What other alien races do you think will appear in the show?
