Joss Whedon has recently announced that the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show will need to stand on its own apart from the events of the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For that to happen, the S.H.I.E.L.D. show will need its own characters. Here is a list of 10 of the more interesting S.H.I.E.L.D. members that would make fantastic additions to the new S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show. Note that Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye who have been S.H.I.E.L.D. members either in the comics or cinematic universe have not been included as they are the stars of The Avengers, and are unlikely to play a big role in the S.H.I.E.L.D. show. Sam Wilson aka The Falcon and Sharon Carter have also been excluded as they are known best for their association with Captain America and they are set to appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Eric OGrady aka Ant-Man has also been excluded as an Ant-Man film is in development.
