"I've seen parts of it, but yeah I don't know much. This is Marvel! They don't let you know anything. It's very watermarked scripts, heavily watermarked. Yeah, they don't let you know like the day of, but they are very secretive and I think they are still figuring stuff out."

Joss Whedon is directing the Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot episode from a script he co-wrote with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.

    Can't wait! I'd love for her to be in the show just to have that little bit of extra connective tissue to the films, along with Clark Gregg. Hopefully Sam Jackson makes a few appearances throughout the series.

      Cool. Have her in a few episodes for the first season because while the first season air's HIMYM's final season will be on as well. Then in season two make her a regular.

        Yes.. This woman is f*cking awesome, and HIMYM is almost done (thankfully) anyway.


        • dan1 • 3 years ago

          Yes please.


          • instead8909 • 3 years ago

            she needs to move on and HIMYM hasn't been good in years.

              She's awesome. Anything with her is awesome.


              • gldphishy • 3 years ago

                She will do it. HIMYM is almost finished anyways and if she said it wont affect S.H.I.E.L.D then she knows the schedules for each will be at different times. Can't wait to see what they do with this!

                  I don't see why she shouldn't be in the series. When Fury's away, she's basically mother to all agents. If it weren't for CBS renewing HIMYM for the bazillionth time, this would be her next hit show that could guarantee her at least 1 seasons

                    Please. She's so... Just please, ABC.
