I know this story technically came out a few days ago so I am late but I just had to post about it yo! So it seems like a good deal of time has passed since our last major update concerning Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. tv show, however it seems like now is the time for the next major announcement as superherohype reports in the following article:
“ABC has announced that their upcoming small screen foray in Marvel’s cinematic universe has a new title. Formerly known as “Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D.,” the new series will now be called “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” The newly-released synopsis for the show reads as follows:
Joss Whedon shows us not all heroes are super with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, Marvel’s The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) 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 (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.
Executive Produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”), Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”) and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville,” “Lost,” “Heroes”) comes Marvel’s first live-action TV series, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
There’s no word yet on when the show might premiere, but check back for details as soon as they become available.”
Alright, now we have an official announcement complete with synopsis too, I’m liking the sound of this. It looks like there will be various character with different traits, personalities and skills and there is going to be a great focus on these agents to show what hard work they do when the superheros aren’t around. The concept behind the show sounds interesting and if pulled off correctly then it could be something incredible. I just hope this show doesn’t completely forget about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and hopefully there will be ties to the movies be they visual or verbal or possibly some easter eggs for upcoming projects too? Who knows? All I know is that I am hyped for this especially with the return of my man Agent Phil Coulson! Yeah yeah! 😀
