Joss Whedon has always been good at playing with his audience's emotions, and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. will be no different in that aspect. In fact, even Whedon fell prey to his own devices. In a recent interview with Comic Book Therapy, Whedon admitted that he was brought to tears when he read an outline for an episode of his new superhero series.
"We're still sort of jockeying through the different stories, but I've already read at least one script, just in its outline form, actually made me tear up. We're just finding out who these guys are and just trying to mine that vein of how much they matter in this world where it seems like nobody but the heroes do."
He went on to talk more about emotions, saying the second episode of the series will focus on fear.
"We have just started shooting again. Now it really starts because the pilot was a ton of fun, but the real pressure is can they keep it up? Can they find that heart? Can they get the big, epic stuff going? Episode 2 is a lot more frightening than episode 1."
What's great about all of the shows Whedon has worked on is that they just get better and better as they go. I'm confident that the team working on this series is going to be able to deliver and keep up the awesomeness.
