ABC has revealed a few more details about their upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D live-action series, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D! Besides the name change, the wording of this press release makes it pretty clear that this series takes place AFTER Avengers and that Agent Coulson isn't dead. As of now, there's no word as to whether or not Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury will make an appearance, but stranger things have happened. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is scheduled to debut sometime this Fall!
Joss Whedon (MARVELíS THE AVENGERS, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) shows us not all heroes are super with MARVELíS AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
Fresh from his role in the summerís box office smash, MARVELíS THE AVENGERS, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that havenít been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). Theyíll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
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 Ė 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 Ė that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.
Executive Produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen (Dollhouse, Dr.Horribleís Sing-Along Blog), Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias) and Jeph Loeb (Smallville, Lost, Heroes) comes Marvelís first live-action TV series, MARVELíS AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
