So… That basically says it right there. Diana will now be just another bastard child of Zeus which, by the way, is literally the world’s oldest cliche. It also has taken the origin story of the most feminist comic book character of all time and made it dependent on a man.
Producer Charles Roven stated in an interview that she’s “a demi-god. Her father was Zeus.”
News has broken out that Xena herself Lucy Lawless will be joining the cast of Agents of SHIELD. This is an amazing collisions of geekdoms. There is no word on who she will be playing but we can only hope that she will either be a fellow SHIELD agent or an Asgardian. I think the one thing that everyone agrees on is that she should still be playing Xena in some way. I personally think she would make a great Asgardian and that would be a great way to keep the comic and TV universes linked.
There is also no word if she is just guest starring or if she will be a recurring character, Marvel and ABC are really keeping thing under wraps about this one. There is a chance more information will come out during Comic Con this weekend. We will keep you up to date as we hear more information.
Who is excited to hear about Xena joining the cast of Agents of SHIELD?
