Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

Honestly, if they were to do a live action superhero show, I think I'd rather see them go for someone hasn't been done a million times already, like Daredevil or Luke Cage.

Superhero spin-offs on television are fine, but they need to be low level. A Hulk TV series simply would not work (Lou Ferrigno just doesn't cut it), but a Punisher series? Now that has potential and would work with a smaller TV-sized budget.

I would totally go for a Daredevil or Punisher series.

S.H.E.I.L.D. will take place after Avengers and the battle of New York.

I'm still thinking LMD for a possible explanation for Coulson. This should be really fun and interesting!

The LMD reference is there to be used.

That is really the only logical direction they could go, IMO.

Not necessarily. As I've said before, it's not impossible for someone to survive the kind of impalement injury Coulson received in the film, if they get medical treatment quickly enough. And we never actually saw the medics call his death -- we just heard Fury tell the others that they'd called it, and we know he wasn't above lying to manipulate their emotions.

True, an injury that serious would take months to recover from and would probably leave a person permanently impaired in some ways, but maybe Coulson could have been healed by some kind of bionic grafts or a variant of the supersoldier formula. So there are other possible ways they could go besides revealing that the "dead" Coulson was an LMD.

The pilot should include a Stan Lee cameo.
