‘Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Gets Series Order on ABC, First Look to Debut May 12th

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been given a series order on ABC. The Network will air a First Look at the series this Sunday, May 12 (Mother's Day) at 8:00pm, just before the season finale of Once Upon a Time.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate) is based on the Marvel comics' secret intelligence organization that has appeared in most of the Marvel Phase One films, and had a heavy presence in last year's box office hit Marvel's The Avengers. Director and writer of that film, Joss Whedon, has directed and co-written the Pilot with his brother Jed Whedon and Jed's wife, Maurissa Tancharoen.

Starring in the series are Ming-Na as Agent Melinda May, Clark Gregg, who reprises his role as Agent Phil Coulson, Brett Dalton as gruff rising star Agent Grant Ward, Elizabeth Henstridge as science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons and Iain DeCaestecker as tech guru Agent Leo Fitz, with Chloe Bennet set as Skye, a superhero-obsessed woman.

The series doesn't have a set premiere date, but its expected to be announced as part of the Fall 2013 line-up on ABC.

      Not surprised it was picked up for a full season. Looking forward to seeing it though.

        I hope they use S.H.I.E.L.D. Villains like Baron Strucker and Hydra or Scorpio and Zodiac

          @dan1 I think you mean the non-comicbook readers. The comicbook readers know how awesome S.H.I.E.L.D. can be.

                I anticipate this show will divide its audience pretty evenly. You will have those of us who are well aware of what's in store for us being familiar with Whedon's past TV work, therefore enjoying this a great deal, and then you will have the crowd that unrealistically expects Iron Man or Hulk to show up every other episode, and when they don't, they'll write it off as sh*t, even if the writing/stories/acting is great.

                      I'm still not convinced about this, I have to see the pilot first.

                        Well, this was predictable. Unlike NBC's failed Wonder Woman pilot, this was done within the structured world the Marvel films have created, by people that know how to mold that world. I guess CW now has some competition in the comic book adaptation business.
