Of all the questions hovering over Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., perhaps the biggest is just what Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) is doing in it. Even the spoiler-y explanation we got earlier a few months back only raised more questions.
Happily, co-creator Jed Whedon assures fans they’ll get an answer — just not right away. Fans will be able to pick up hints from the first episode, but it’ll take some time for the whole truth to be revealed. Hit the jump to read his comments on Coulson and more. (Be advised spoilers for The Avengers follow from here on out.)

I don’t think there was much doubt that the TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would be ordered to series at ABC, but here’s your confirmation. The show exec produced by Joss Whedon (who also directed the pilot) will air on the Disney-owned network, and extend part of the story of The Avengers into a more everyday thriller territory on television.
That’s the first official cast photo above, and the first look at footage from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air this weekend, Sunday, May 12, at 8 p.m. before of the season finale of Once Upon a Time. Read More »
While nothing has been said officially, TV By The Numbers and IGN are reporting that ABC has picked up the Marvel television series spin-off Agents of SHIELD for a debut this Fall.
While ABC has not made an official announcement, they briefly (likely accidentally) published a video on their youtube page, a viral teaser for the upcoming show. The video shows some captured video of The Incredible Hulk causing destruction, captured from a distance. A small logo/badge that reads “Rising Tide” appears on the lower right hand part of the screen. While ABC has removed the video, it seems to still online elsewhere (for now). Watch the video now embedded after the jump.

Briefly: Here’s the latest on Marvel’s first big foray into television. The cast of S.H.I.E.L.D. has just been bolstered by Brett Dalton (Army Wives, Killing Lincoln, Blue Bloods), who will play Agent Grant, a “rising star” of the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. Grant is “deadly, precise, and cool under fire — but not so great with the people skills.” Dalton will work alongside Ming-Na, who is top pilot and weapons expert Agent Melinda May; Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, and Elizabeth Henstridge as “science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons,” and Iain De Caestecker will be Agent Leo Fitz, a technology guru.
The show jumps off from elements of S.H.I.E.L.D. as seen in Marvel’s solo hero movies and The Avengers. Joss Whedon co-wrote the pilot with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, and will direct the pilot, which should be a big asset given the success of The Avengers. [TV Line]
After serving as the anchor for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One, Clark Gregg is set to do the same on TV. The actor will reprise his role as S.H.I.E.L.D Agent Phil Coulson in Joss Whedon‘s ABC series Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. Whedon himself send a video to New York Comic-Con to make the announcement which also revealed that he’ll be co-writing the pilot with co-write the pilot with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.

Marvel generated a good bit of excitement by announcing that The Avengers director (and Buffy and Firefly head honcho) Joss Whedon would make not only The Avengers 2, but would act as executive producer of a TV show chronicling the exploits of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and act as a general smoke-shrouded godfather to Marvel’s film slate.
The details on S.H.I.E.L.D. have been thin so far, with Whedon saying the show “came together very organically,” and noting that the show will feature all new characters, rather than importing personalities from Marvel’s films. Now, however, we know a bit more about four of the core characters, and taken together they may sound like a pretty familiar bunch to Whedon’s fans. Read More »

We’ve known for weeks now that Joss Whedon would help develop the live-action Marvel series for ABC, but the whos, whats, hows, and whens are now becoming a little bit clearer. ABC has just given the green light to S.H.I.E.L.D., which (duh) will center around the espionage and law enforcement agency led by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in the cinematic universe. Whedon is on board to write with his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog), and will also direct if his schedule allows it. More after the jump.
