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.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. begins airing on ABC this fall on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET.​

Looks pretty damn good and I need something to fill the hole Fringe has left in my heart. Here's to hoping it's better than the Cape. :jay

Re: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

This is one of those shows that could be really awesome or really terrible. As of right now, I have very high hopes for it. Agent Coulson is the shit. I never had any doubt that he survived the Avengers. Marvel seems to be able to do no wrong as of late. My only worry is that the show is on ABC. In general, I normally stay away from shows on the big 4, as they tend to fuck up or cancel anything that is actually good.

One of the things I have heard about the show is that they won't be doing it like, "oh you just missed Iron Man... Cap was just here!". It's supposed to be mostly it's own story involving the day to day activities of the SHIELD. It's possible that we might get a cameo or two from the major movie players but a cameo is probably all it will be.

The trailer looks badass. I'm in. Let's hope it lives up to the standards set by the movies.

Will watch any Whedon show. If its half as good as Buffy/Angel then its going to be brilliant.

It ought to be interesting to see what the show's direction will take - we might see some of the lower-tiered Marvel characters introduced along with cameos from the major players. Even without a lot of ties to the already established heroes, I think it could be pretty successful. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see the series utilize HYDRA as the antagonist in varying ways.

I'll definitely be watching it in the fall - I have high hopes due to Marvel's success rate so far, plus Joss Whedon is involved so it has lots going for it.

I guess this is a good sign, now WWE won't get rid of The Shield for sure!

I got a hunch that it will flop. The strange doesn't usually do great on network tv. Network watchers just want their boring, plain procedural dramas.

Most likely not. Don't expect any of the Avengers to be on. Nick Fury or Maria Hill are a possibility though.
Agent Coulson is on the show :punk2

But Cobie Smulders has said she will guest star at some point.

I don't doubt that ABC wouldn't throw $5-10 million at RDJ to help boost the ratings to BBT levels.

fpalm 5 minutes into the show Cobie Smulders shows up. Damn you DVR for giving me the option of watching it an hour after it ended.

Pretty great minus those cheesy shots of everyone after they saved the day. Can't wait for the rest of the season to unfold.
