Check out lots and lots of new images from the pilot episode of Marvel’s first big foray into TVland, “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”. I’m not sure if that’s the official name. Kinda clunky if you asked me, but of course no one did, so eh.
The pilot episode finds the gang at SHIELD going up against “Angel” alum J. August Richards, though from the looks of it he’s not really a bad guy per se. Probably just a misunderstood good guy. Then there’s that whole gathering of the gang moments, with Brett Dalton as the new suave agent and Chloe Bennet as the new rebellious hacker/civvie.
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).
The show stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Chloe Bennet, and premieres on ABC this September 24th.
