First Look at Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D' TV Series
Yesterday, ABC ran a thirty second teaser trailer for its upcoming show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, a spinoff series from last summer's mega-juggernaut cash manufacturer The Avengers. SlashFilm has the trailer available for your viewing pleasure here; they also report that the show was officially picked up by the network for its first season.
The clip shows Agent Phil Coulson, a character appearing in all the Marvel franchise movies leading up to and including The Avengers, quipping about cars and tech, interspersed with other action-packed footage from the pilot, which was written and directed by Joss Whedon.
Played by Clark Gregg, Coulson's inclusion in this series may induce some head-scratching, since he (SPOILER!) was killed by Loki in The Avengers, inspiring the quarreling team to put their differences aside and FIGHT! Unless this is a prequel series (which is totally possible) Whedon has some 'splaining to do. Of course, the filmmaker is no stranger to bringing characters back from the dead: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (SPOILER!) died something like seventy times in the course of her series. I may be off on that number.
The trailer looks fun, and I'm interested to see this extension of the Avengers storyline. What does everyone think?
