ABC has announced that the new Joss Whedon TV show spin off from The Avengers has changed name from Marvel's SHIELD to Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD . How long before it’s changed again to Disney Subsidiary Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD , we wonder?
“Joss Whedon shows us not all heroes are super with Marvel's Agents of SHIELD .
“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 organisation SHIELD. 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 superheroes, 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 SHIELD 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 SHIELD .”
