To say I am super excited for the debut of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD would be an extreme understatement. Seriously. This is a show that exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although this probably won’t happen anytime soon, but just the thought that any member of The Avengers could hop in on an episode are two, gives me goosebumps all over. Even seeing characters that haven’t shown up in any of the films yet is pretty enticing.
ABC has just announced how long my wait will have to be. The show will premiere on Tuesday, September 24th at 8 PM EST. And to hold us over, we can see a “Meet Agents Fitz and Simmons” Featurette where we get to know a bit about the quirky agents. You can definitely see Avengers director Joss Whedon’s humor shine through the dialog. Oh September, where are you?
Here’s the official synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:
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). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
