Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!
S.H.E.I.L.D. will be "autonomous" from Avengers.
Whatever you want to call ABC’s newly greenlit S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot, don’t call it an Avengers spinoff, as co-writer Joss Whedon wants to stress that the series is largely “autonomous” from this year’s $1.5 billion blockbuster and its upcoming sequel.
That said, Variety’s Cynthia Littleton reported from Tuesday night’s Q&A the Writers Guild Theater with Sleepwalk with Me filmmakers Mike Birbiglia and Ira Glass that Whedon “reserves right to pepper in bits here and there.”
