This is absolute perfection.
TV Guide has confirmed that Xena aka Lucy Lawless has been cast to join the second season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Details on her role are still entirely unknown, but given Lawless’ past as the iconic Warrior Princess, I think it’s safe to assume that we’ll get to see her kick some ass.
The Mary Sue has put forth the idea that, no matter what role Lawless ends up having, that there should absolutely be some sparring sessions between her character and Agent Melinda May. That must happen. Please, Marvel/ABC. Let that happen!
In addition to Xena: Warrior Princess, Lawless has appeared on Battlestar Galactica, Parks and Recreation, No Ordinary Family, and more!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 premieres Tuesday, September 23 at 9/8C on ABC.
