Fresh off Nick Fury's eye patch is the news involving the S.H.I.E.L.D TV show pilot, first let's confirm that Marvel has changed the name of the show from S.H.I.E.L.D to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (Catchy eh?) Something else to note is the show hasn't been picked up yet although it would be quite shocking if it wasn't picked up for a season(s) with all the work and possible cameo's being added in.
Joss Whedon 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 Wen); 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 the human 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.
Having the name change to include Marvel's is the selling point Marvel is trying to accomplish with all the GREAT things they've done and plan on doing the name is all you need to have a great advertisement without having seen the pilot yet the show is a great way of introducing:
- Events that can link to movies and characters
- Characters that can start off slow on the show only to make a huge impact in a movie
- Dum Dum Dugan!
- Cameo's? Depending on who would actually make it on the show with S.H.I.E.L.D can Scarlett Johansson, Sam Jackson, or even Robert Downey Jr. make appearances? Maybe Chris Evans or other heroes can drop in and out once in a while.
- Could our agents hunt famed and not introduced Marvel Heroes and Villains?
Such great names and even better people behind a soon to be great show!
