Extended Agents of SHIELD Trailer Gives us a Better Look at the New Characters

This new trailer dropped just a little bit ago thanks to the Agents of SHIELD official Facebook Page, and if you’re a fan of the Marvel films, or interested in this show at all, it’s worth a look:

It’s got the look, the humor, and of course Agent Coulson.  I’m glad they acknowledged his ‘death’ in this trailer, but didn’t fully address it either.  This should clarify to those who haven’t been keeping up with every little piece of news on the show, exactly when the show takes place, but also leaves the mystery intact.  I’m digging the character interactions so far.  It feels like this could be an interesting group of people to follow. 

This trailer expanded a little more on what the show itself is going to be about.  They throw in a good mix of cop drama with the science fiction aspect.  There’s no telling if the show is actually going to work, but based on this trailer, I’ve got good vibes so far. 

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.

Now that you’ve had a longer look, how do you feel about the show?
