How much do we love this?

Marvel announced today that Amy Acker of “Angel” and “Dollhouse” would appear in an upcoming episode of “Agents of SHIELD” as Audrey, the ex-girlfriend of SHIELD agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg). Marvel released the photo above of Acker from the still-unscheduled episode.

You might remember Audrey as the unnamed “cellist” and girlfriend of Coulson as briefly mentioned in “The Avengers.”

After the movie came out, blogs (like this one) connected some dots in our love of the idea of Coulson coming back from the dead as the Vision, the android Avenger.

A few sites noted that Wanda, the Vision’s comic-book wife – better known as the Scarlet Witch – was supposedly a cellist in the comics.

So the dots didn’t really connect. Clark Gregg came back from the dead but not as the Vision. And Elizabeth Olsen is playing Wanda/Scarlet Witch in “Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.”

So the next best thing? We get Acker as the cellist in an upcoming episode of “Agents of SHIELD.”
