From The Sopranos to Agents of SHIELD, actress  Drea de Matteo has joined the MArvel elite  as Karla Faye Gideon.

Gideon is described by the studio as “a Gifted woman with a grudge to bear against S.H.I.E.L.D. who joins forces with Skye’s father, Cal,”

Daredevil fans will recognise her from the comics and it has us at FTN pondering if this will connect to the upcoming Netflix Daredevil series…

The character was introduced in 2005’s Daredevil: Redemption series by David Hine and Michael Gaydos, after the death of her young son Bradley. Years later, she was a victim of domestic abuse, saved by Daredevil.

How this connects to SHIELD is anyone’s guess though…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
