Is it true that Luke Cage has already been cast for this show?
That's an old rumor. There was a speculation a month or two back that J. August Richards's character in the pilot was Cage, but that was disproven.


I just found this article:
http://shieldtv.net/agents-of-s-h-i-...-magazine/3039

It quotes the upcoming Entertainment Weekly article about Whedon and the show, which contains the following passage:
Then we’re off to the top-secret set of S.H.I.E.L.D., which brings the sprawling Marvel universe to television for the first-ever live-action series in the company’s 74-year history.
What??? Aren't they forgetting the '70s Incredible Hulk and Amazing Spider-Man, or Blade: The Series from 2006? Not to mention the '70s Doctor Strange and Captain America pilots, the '90s pilots for Power Pack, Generation X, and Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD, and the '00s Man-Thing pilot movie.

Read last night that Channel 4 here in the UK have picked up the rights. Didn't get any more details though.

I think of Con Air everytime I see Coulson's car. I wonder if his license plate says "ASS KIKR".

I think they mean a TV show actually made by Marvel rather than a TV show based on Marvel IP. Even so let's be honest, Incredible Hulk is the only show on that list that 90% of the audience are likely to have heard of, let alone seen.

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

Yeah, I don't buy that it just meant the first Marvel-produced live-action show, because it mentions "the company's 74-year history," which means it's referring to Marvel Comics, the publisher, rather than Marvel Studios, the film/TV production company which was founded only 20 years ago. Maybe someone mentioned to the article writer that it was Marvel Studios' first live-action series and the writer misinterpreted it to mean the first Marvel-based live-action series ever made.

Besides, even if that were what they meant, it would still be the second live-action TV series produced by Marvel (not counting pilots), with Blade: The Series being the first. Or rather, the second live-action series adaptation of a Marvel comic and the third live-action series overall, since Mutant X was also a Marvel Studios production.

You mean a half-assed entertainment "news" rag isn't completely accurate and relies on hyperbole? I'm absolutely shocked by this revelation. Absolutely shocked.

I know when I pick up something like Entertainment Weekly, I expect Pulitzer-winning exposes and hard hitting articles that have had entire teams of highly trained fact checkers okaying it before it hits print.

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

I think they intended to say that this is the first live-action series to feature "the sprawling Marvel universe", which it is. (Unless you count the Hulk movies with Thor and Daredevil.) They just phrased it really badly.

Apologies if this has been posted already...but Maria Hill introduces "The New World". This has got to be my most anticipated show in quite some time.

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

^No kidding. I'm actually taking a vacation day from work on Sept 24 in order to watch the opener. The DVR is fine for the rest of the season, but I'm not missing this!

And Sept 24 is also the release day of Iron Man 3 on DVD/Blu-Ray! Between re-watching IM3 (which I've only seen once), watching "Agent Carter" (Probably several times) and "Agents of SHIELD" (Possibly twice), I can honestly say that I'm spending my vacation day in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

So stoked Maria Hill has some screen time in the opener!
If this show makes it then I expect her to come on board full time in S2 with HIMYM wrapped up.

That 30-second just puts chills up and down the spine.

Does Stevie Nicks know that "Soldier's Angel" is being used for this?
