According to IGN, ABC has officially picked up Marvel's TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is set to premiere this fall. We've also got a viral type promo video for the series to show you that features The Hulk wreaking havoc! It's very short, but it's something! It is safe to assume that the aftermath of this destruction is something that S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to have to deal with.
The series was co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen. Joss also directed the first episode, which I'm sure will turn out amazing. I'm looking forward to seeing what this team of talented individuals came up with.
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 haven’t 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). They’ll 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 – 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 – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.
Check out the promo viral teaser clip! You'll notice a little "Rising Tide" badge on the video. Not sure what's that about. Any theories?
