After finding great success at the box office with Marvel's The Avengers and its various different superhero tie-ins, Marvel Studios is taking the action to television with the one-hour adventure drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (formerly known as Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D.). Coming to ABC this fall, the network has released an official synopsis, which finds Clark Gregg's fan favorite Agent Coulson assembling a worldwide crime enforcement agency. Read on for full details.
Joss Whedon (Marvel's The Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) 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) 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 thehuman 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.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is eyeing a fall release date on ABC.
