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

He's an LMD. We also have to consider what origin they might use for Vision and starting off with an LMD might be a good way to establish some background.

It's disappointing that we don't see any really recognisable names in the concept. Arrow is enjoyable partly because it is teasing fans with known characters. I don't expect Hollywood actors to guest but I'd be happy if they were to cast other actors in some of the more recognisable roles. It might be nice if the characters develop their own gimmicks and minor super powers as part of the SHIELD Super Agents program. Bring on Demolition Dunphy I say! I was also a fan of the concept behind the Vamp - a minor telepath whose energy belt let her duplicate a psychic template of her opponent so that she could instinctively use their own skills against them. Loads of fun to be had there.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if we had familiar characters as guest characters every so often. It would be kind of a waste to set a show in as expansive as universe as the Marvel (Cinematic) Universe, and not take full advantage of it.

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

Joss Whedon talks S.H.I.E.L.D.

A few tidbits...

Why the ongoing name change? “I think it had to do with legal things,” Whedon told TVLine at Wednesday night’s Iron Man 3 premiere event in Los Angeles. Alluding to a similarly named series that put FX on the map, he quipped: “Ask Michael Chiklis, because I think it’s his fault.”

.................

Will the S.H.I.E.L.D. series capitalize on a cross-platform synergy, to the delight of fans? “What we’re trying to do is open the door for that — but that’s not the door to the main room,” Whedon stresses. “The big house is that S.H.I.E.L.D. has to work on its own. It can’t be an Easter egg farm. It’s got to be a show with characters you care about week to week, that if you’ve never seen a Marvel movie you can turn into.”

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

Unsurprising if true. Either way, I hope SLJ has a cameo appearance. Considering his current contract has an option for an exuberant amount of movies (I can't remember the exact count, 13 or so), I'm sure he's willing to make an appearance on this show.

Yeah, not at all surprised by the spoiler, if it is true
I wonder if it'll have any kind of an effect on the movies?

As if there were ever any doubt, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been picked up by ABC.

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

Not surprising, but still pretty damn cool that we'll soon have another Joss Whedon show on the air (even if he probably won't be as heavily involved as he was with the others).

Bleeding Cool had the promo on their site via youtube but it already got taken down or else I would've posted the link. So I'm thinking it's possible we'll see it before Sunday.
