“We feel incredibly fortunate to have landed a cast loaded with this much talent,” producer Paul Zbyszewski said. “From the beginning, we knew we’d need a group of actors who were multifaceted, who could play all the chords any great Marvel show promises to play, from dramatic thriller to comedy to action. It’s going to be really fun to watch them work.”
