With Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. set to have its big Comic-Con panel in Ballroom 20 on Friday, ABC has released a new featurette focusing on Agents Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). Henstridge describes the pair as having “a brother-sister relationship” with Simmons handling the bio-chem while Fitz focuses on the gadgetry. It looks like the writers took a “Q”-like character, split it in two, and created what looks like a really fun dynamic.
Hit the jump to check out the featurette. The show also stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, and Chloe Bennet. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays this fall on ABC.

Here’s the official synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:
Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D.

Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
