The news that the SHIELD TV series has been picked up by ABC is far from a suprise due the success of the recent Marvel movies.
With Joss Whedon behind the whole idea it gives confidence that the series is going to be a major success but so far we still don’t know exactly what it’s going to be about.
The cast so far:
Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (Marvel’s The Avenger,Buffy the Vampire Slayer); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot co-writers (Dollhouse, Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog); Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias); and Jeph Loeb (Smallville) comes Marvel’s first TV series. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
The synopsis describes it as Marvels first TV series but we can’t forget the original Spider-man and Hulk TV series and also the Generation X which brought a few of the X-Men to our TV screens breifly in 1996.
