Item 47 Actress Says She Won’t Be Starring In SHIELD TV Series

Item 47 star Lizzy Caplan has told Coming Soon that her character, Claire, will not be starring in the upcoming Joss Whedon show-run SHIELD television series.

“I can’t really,” explained the actress who appears in the Marvel One-Shot short movie that comes with the Blu-ray version of Avengers Assemble (unlike a Joss Whedon commentary… mutter… grumble… broken record…). “I have my own show so I will not be a regular on the Marvel SHIELD show. But I’m glad people are so excited about that. I think it’s a good idea… Maybe I could do some little thing.”

Which is a bit of a shame, because as anyone who’s seen Item 47 will know, she’s a fun character, and it looks like she was being set up as an ongoing… well, in case you haven’t seen it, we won’t say whether it’s as a hero or villain.

But we still hold out hope for Titus Welliver (see the SFX interview with him here).
