ABC Orders Whedon's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." to Series

This Fall, Joss Whedon will once again have a series on network television. "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD." pilot was ordered by ABC last August, and now various sources including Entertainment Weekly, IGN and SitcomcsOnline are reporting that ABC has all but publicly confirmed the pilot has been picked up to series.

Directed by "The Avengers" helmer Whedon and co-written by Whedon along with "Dollhouse" veterans Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, the series spins out of the events of "The Avengers" and stars Clark Gregg, returning to his fan-favorite role as Agent Phil Coulson, and Marvel Universe newcomers Brett Dalton, Ming-Na-Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge and Chloe Bennet.

Amidst the flurry of reports about the pickup, ABC also briefly released a 7-second teaser on the youtube page that was pulled soon after its release according to Slashfilm. The video features a rampaging Hulk caught on video, as well as a logo reading "Rising Tide." You can view the teaser embedded below.

I've just lost interest in this.

This just looks like one of the stereotypical teen drama shows you'd see on YTV these days :/ I hope I'm wrong.

You came to that conclusion based on a single photo? Eh?

Big shock that this is going to be on the network that Disney owns, huh?

I'm betting they'll either say the agent who died was either a Life Model Decoy, or they're going to make the series be set pre-Avengers films. Having it take place after the movie's events would make people wonder "where are the Avengers at?". Those stars would never make an appearance on this show, so making the series pre-Avengers solves the lack-of-Avengers problem.

And I'm seriously stunned this is already being panned by fans here. It's friggin' Joss Whedon! Nobody's giving him a chance, based on his track record of mega-awesome television shows??

I will give it a chance. Probably it won't last more than a season. I'm not being negative here, only realistic. I hope it's good and it lasts. Fingers crossed!

I agree with Thundercron, it will most likely be set before the Avengers movie chronologically and may not have even anything to do with the movie franchise at all. Ultimate Universe SHIELD or something. I'm betting that Sam Jackson probably won't even cameo! So who's going to play Nick Fury? Gotta have him.
Maybe a Howling Commandos series would be better!

The promo pic doesn't do the series any favors. It could be any show, CSI: Whatever, 24, Men in Black: the TV show...etc...etc...Looks like a bunch of white people, where's the diversity?

Quality. Consistency. Variety. Reliable. Fair. Friendly

Actually the girl on the far left is half Chinese and the one on the right is also Asian (Macau, China). She is also 49 years old, believe it or not.


The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

According to news sources, the show will take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DOES take place AFTER the Avengers movie. So... Coulsen apparently did not really die in the movie.

And I believe the show will explain how he is still alive.

Since you brought it up, you apparently must think there is something wrong with that.

Actually the photo makes me a bit nervous because even though it's always nice to see some hotties striking a pose it reminds me a bit too much of the Jessica Alba - FF thing, they inserted romance & sex appeal to attract the masses & turned off the true fans in the process. Having Whedon is pretty huge, I'm sure he'll try & stay true to the comics.

You know what would be cool is if they had superhero appearances, it would give them a chance to do a "test run" with different characters & actors, maybe have an occasional cameo by Cap, Thor, etc. It would also save them from having to make a whole movie just to introduce a character. I could see them trying out Downey's replacement on a show like this.
