Agents of SHIELD Casting
Look who’s coming to Agents of SHIELD.
Natalia Cordova-Buckley, who made an impression earlier this year in McFarland, USA, has been cast as Yo Yo Rodriguez, aka Slingshot.
Slingshot has the special ability to run at superhuman speeds.
I’ve always been honest, I don’t follow the comics. Never have been a comic fan, though I respect them. They are a great piece of work and art. But because of this, I don’t know all the characters that can come out of the wood work. But it’s very exciting to see new characters coming to the show.
Natalia Cordova-Buckley, 33, is known for her roles in McFarland, USA, and Ventanas al mar.
What I know about Yo Yo Rodriguez (Slingshot) comes from comicvine.com She is a young teen that Daisy Johnson recruits. Yo Yo is trained under Nick Fury and Daisy. And appears with the Secret Warriors as Slingshot in the Skrull invasion.
Slingshot’s abilities are super speed and hand-to-hand combat. Using a bo staff as her primary weapon.
I can’t wait to see how Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will adapt Slingshot to their show. And see how she fits in with the team. Are you excited? Tweet me your answers: @aosfans
