Secret Warriors is one step closer to becoming an actual, realized reality on ABC’s Marvel based series, Agents of SHIELD as Comicbook.com has found out that Natalia Cordova-Buckley has been cast as Elena Rodriquez, a.k.a. Slingshot. As the site describes her, she is “a tough, street-wise Colombian woman given Inhuman abilities.”

In the comics, Slingshot, or “Yo-YoRodiriguez, is in the original Secret Warriors comic that Season Three of Agents of SHIELD is, more or less, based on. Much like The Flash or Quicksilver, Slingshot can move at super speeds; however, unlike them, she has the unique ability to suddenly appear right back where she started from.

She was one of the original Secret Warriors recruits for Nick Fury’s team, lead by Daisy Johnson, a.k.a. Quake, played by Chloe Bennet in the ABC series. Seeing her here brings up the possibility of also, eventually, seeing Hellfire, Manifold or even Sebastian Druid who could tie in nicely to the Darkforce stuff they’re doing on Agent Carter as well as the upcoming film, Doctor Strange.
