I might try to find it, as I haven't seen it either, but it will air tomorrow.
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
I'm a little excited for this.
here is a sample of what the show could be like: Avengers Extra - "Item 47"
now imagine appearances for D-list Marvel heroes and villians (possibly even a TV version of Spiderman, because Sony only has the Movie rights.
), season finales that lead right into spin-off movies for lower-tier characters.
This show could be a launching platform for lots of Marvel things going forward, such as direct to TV movies, lead ins to big theater movies with superhero/villian introductions, origins and story archs.
I just hope the show is successful.
a few guest appearances and recalls from earlier movies also wouldn't hurt: The Consultant
