Sofia the First, Ming-Na Wen (inset)
Years before she was an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., Ming-Na Wen voiced the title role in the 1998 Disney hit Mulan. Now she's bringing back the beloved character in Disney Channel's Sofia the First and TV Guide Magazine has the exclusive first look. The episode, airing Aug. 15, finds the feisty Chinese heroine giving strategic advice to little Sofia whose stepdad, the king, is trapped in a jaguar's den. We spoke with Wen about how it feels to be a part of Disney Princess history — even though the Mouse House had to fudge a bit!

Those who thought Jasper Sitwell running off to Lemurian Star in last week's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was the ABC series' idea of a crossover with Captain America: The Winter Soldier were sorely mistaken on Tuesday night. In truth, the implications of how Marvel's latest blockbuster will affect the TV offshoot run much, much deeper.

In a world where superpowers have become the norm, it was actually quite surprising to learn during Tuesday's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that the malevolent Clairvoyant does not, in fact, have powers; they just have security clearance.
That's right, the super-villain who has been dogging Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team is actually...
It's only a matter of time before Agent Coulson can no longer continue being the consummate company man.
When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for a seven-episode uninterrupted run on Tuesday (8/7c, ABC), the super series will explore just how far Coulson (Clark Gregg) can be pushed before he realizes that the company that he lives to serve has been hiding one too many secrets from him. The first crack in his façade began soon after his return to the field, when he realized there was something a little bit off after Loki brutally stabbed him through the heart in The Avengers. Of course, discovering that his resurrection was thanks to a mysterious blue alien didn't help either. But if the truth ever got out — as viewers learned in the most recent episode — that Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) was possibly working against him, it would mark the tipping point for Coulson.

The truth about what happened to Agent Coulson isn't the only secret Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been keeping.
When the ABC super series debuted, Coulson (Clark Gregg) had to coax Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) back into the field since she took a desk job after some incident that was likely the catalyst for her nickname The Cavalry. But May will face her past head-on during Tuesday's episode (8/7c, ABC) when one of her secrets could be the key to saving the team...
