In case you're wondering when you will be able to watch the S.H.I.E.L.D TV series that Joss Whedon is developing, Marvel TV head Jeff Loeb says it will be released in the Fall of 2013! Here's what he told PREVIEWSworld in a recent interview,
We have a "little" pilot for television that you might have heard about called Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. co-written, directed, and Executive Produced by none other than Joss Whedon! Working with Joss, Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell on the show is a blast! And bringing in Clark Gregg to play Agent Phil Coulson — the best! Hopefully we will be on in the Fall of 2013 on ABC!"
Whedon is sure to give us the incredible TV series that we're all expecting. The guy is working with a team of talented people, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they've got planned for the fans. On top of Clark Gregg's involvement, there's Ming-Na as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Gemma Simmons and Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz.
The story will revolve around the activities of the top-secret S.H.I.E.L.D. espionage organization featured throughout the Marvel films. Whedon is tentatively set to direct the pilot. It's cool to know that we'll actually get to watch this series next year.
