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.
