Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. begins airing on ABC this fall on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET.The Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon’s new TV series – which is now officially set to air on Tuesday nights beginning in Fall 2013 – and the return of Clark Gregg as fan-favorite Phil “His first name is Agent” Coulson, who is alive and well despite (apparently) having been skewered by Loki’s staff during his last onscreen appearance.
Whedon’s show will reveal the whole truth about Coulson and S.H.I.E.L.D. head Nick Fury’s deception in the first Avengers movie installment. However, today we have the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. extended trailer, which is focused on introducing the new additions to the Marvel universe – and teasing what life is like, now that the rest of the world knows about the existence of aliens and superheroes - as well as the “unclassified” specimen that Coulson and his team must attempt to keep a lid on.
Rounding out the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast are Ming-Na Wen (Stargate Universe) as Agent Melinda May, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Brett Dalton (Killing Lincoln) as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet (Nashville) as Skye and J. August Richards (Angel) as a yet to be revealed super-powered individual.
