I’m keenly interested in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. For one, its being masterminded by Joss Whedon, who has always created amazing TV shows with characters you care about (though let’s hope this one lasts longer than his others). Secondly, it’s another expansion of Marvel’s cinematic universe, meaning we have the potential to see small screen characters pop up in movies, and vice versa. It’s a level of continuity we’ve not really seen before in the visual medium and I’m anxious to see how it works out.
It’s a short but sweet preview for the series, which is supposed to debut sometime this fall, but it shows off just about everything Marvel fans wanted to see…Coulson. Yep, he’s back and I have to say, it felt almost like seeing an old friend. On top of that, we get some look at action, and a guy that seems an awful lot like Luke Cage. Hopefully more will be revealed soon. In the meantime how interested are you guys in this?
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.
