Excited for Joss Whedon’s “Agents of SHIELD”? Well you’re not the only one. I think every nerd I know is excited for this TV show. Whether it lives up to the hype and anticipation? Well, that’s another matter entirely. I guess it helps that Whedon is intimately involved, not just in the writer’s room, but also behind the camera for the pilot episode. That’ll help give the show the jump-start it needs, I reckon.
Check out a new batch of character portraits for the show via EW, along with a new extended promo for the show. They’re soldier’s angels, doncha know.
Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Agent Phil Coulson returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward, an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May; and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons. They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye.
The cast includes Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth Henstridge.
