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

A S.H.I.E.L.D. fansite reports, without official confirmation, that Whedon/Angel alum J. August Richards has a part on the show.

I only ever found him adequate on Angel but I haven't seen him since to see if I'd think otherwise.

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

The official title of the show will be "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.".

The official synopsis...
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.

Executive Produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen ("Dollhouse," "Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog"), Jeffrey Bell ("Angel," "Alias") and Jeph Loeb ("Smallville," "Lost," "Heroes") comes Marvel’s first live-action TV series, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Nope. Just like how people don't refer to Tron as Disney's Tron.

I still think the guy who shot the nuke at NYC should be a regular.

Still, "Agents of SHIELD" is kinda clunky... I guess just plain "SHIELD" was too close to The Shield?

After "Arrow" maybe people would be expecting a Captain America series with an affected classy title.

I suppose more realistically it creates a better search engine query.

At least they didn't call it Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.

I thought we were supposed to call it Avengers Assemble.

So i guess now that it's confirmed that the show will follow up on Avengers we still don't know how Coulson managed to survive

I'm happy that they are apparently making a big deal of it in the show by making it one of the big mysteries of the first season s i hope simple comic solutions like a Life Model Decoy or someone with healing powers is out.
