Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to debut in just a few short weeks with the Pilot episode, so Marvel has released a brand new featurette featuring the main cast members. Clark Gregg explains that Agent Coulson is tasked by Nick Fury (who sadly does not appear in the pilot) with putting together an elite team to stop a slew of threats to humanity. We also hear from series creator Joss Whedon, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge and get a glimpse at footage from the show. In addition, ABC has released the first plot synopsis for the series premiere, which debuts Tuesday, September 24 at 8 PM ET on ABC. If that wasn't enough, we also have a photo gallery from the premiere for your viewing pleasure. Take a look at this behind-the-scenes video and photos, then read on for more details about this highly-anticipated series.
Joss Whedon, the creative genius behind the feature film Marvel's The Avengers, one of the highest grossing films of all time, and of the iconic television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has co-created Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a dynamic, action-packed one-hour drama that brings back Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) to lead a team of highly skilled agents to investigate extra-normal and super human people and events worldwide. The series premieres Tuesday, September 24 (8:00-9:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
These agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have a mission: To investigate the new, the strange and the unknown around the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary.
In the premiere episode, Pilot, it's just after the battle of New York, and now that the existence of super heroes and aliens has become public knowledge, the world is trying to come to grips with this new reality. Agent Phil Coulson is back in action and has his eye on a mysterious group called the Rising Tide. In order to track this unseen, unknown enemy, he has assembled a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division). The group's first assignment together as a team finds them trying to track down an ordinary man who has gained extraordinary powers. Powers that could have devastating consequences.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons.
