After Marvel’s successful ventures into the big screen with movies such as The Avengers and Iron Man 3, they have set their sights on television! Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will focus on the aftermath of the chaotic New York fight in the Avengers and it will start airing on ABC this September. It will be headed by executive producer Joss Whedon, the same man who directed the Avengers to success. And its lead character? None other than Agent Phil Coulson! Wait, isn’t he supposed to be dead? The MediaFreaks 3D Animation Studio Blog refers you to its first official trailer:
Joss Whedon will be joined by executive producers Jed Whedon and Marissa Tancharoen. It will be headed by the new unit Marvel Television and will focus on the organization SHIELD and its stable of ordinary yet skilled agents. Ming-Na Wen, Brett Walton, Chloe Bennet and Elizabeth Henstridge are among the cast that will portray the agents. As of now, it remains to be seen if it will feature actual superheroes. Will we see the likes of Luke Cage, Iron Fist and other Marvel heroes?
Months ago, it was speculated that a Hulk television series will be produced but up to now it has not been greenlit. But it remains to be seen how much of the Avengers will make a camero in Agents of SHIELD.
