Not to sound arrogant or anything, but I am right. Because nothing I said qualifies as conjecture. I stated facts. It's not my opinion or my perception. My only claim is that there is absolutely no evidence that Marvel/Joss are "primarily interested in creating brand new characters on both the hero and villain side" THAT is conjecture. As if 6 characters says anything about the hundreds of characters that will potentially be involved in this series.
Now, although there is no evidence of anything, going by the synopsis released: "Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world."
It's easy to believe and speculate that other familiar characters will be involved, though it will obviously not revolve around them
