Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series in Fall of 2013 on ABC

From various sources, it looks like the new S.H.I.E.L.D. television series will have it's pilot episode air this fall. Even though it does not appear to have any of the major characters from the previous Marvel movies aside from Agent Phil Coulson (how does that work considering what happened to his character in the avengers movie?), the show looks promising. Coming from the writer/director of the Avengers movie, it should be action packed. And assuming this pilot turns into a full season, this could be the first step towards a variety of new marvel live action series.

ABC TV President Pat Lee continues to rave about the potential of the Joss Whedon-penned S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series that appears destined for the fall 2013 network lineup. Lee told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter tour that “We fast-tracked that pilot and we’ll see it a lot earlier than the others. We’re very hopeful that it’s going to go to series…it’s a great script.”

Chloe Bennet (Nashville) will need to be fitted for either a pantsuit or a uniform. THR reports that the actress has joined the cast of Marvel’s upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series. Bennett will play the sixth and final regular on the series. The show also stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as “gruff rising star” Agent Grant Ward, Elizabeth Henstridge as science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons, and Ian De Caestecker as tech guru Agent Leo Fitz.

Based on the pilot’s script, penned by Whedon, his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, Lee called S.H.I.E.L.D. “smart with heart” and “very Joss.” Lee wasn’t concerned that the project’s comic book genesis, which is inherently male-skewing, would make the show a difficult sale to the predominantly female ABC audiences the way Shawn Ryan’s Last Resort proved this fall. “Marvel has the ability to bring out the whole family,” Lee said. Because of that, in terms of potential scheduling, “there’s no question S.H.I.E.L.D. could go at 8, it could go on Sunday,” he said. “But it could go at 9 or 10 too.”

It will likely be the first but definitely not the last Marvel series on ABC. “We’re developing a lot of Marvel shows,” Lee said. “Marvel is just huge for us as an opportunity. We did it with Once Upon A Time, and we’re doing it with S.H.I.E.L.D., doing shows that can really help the wider Walt Disney Company.

i am very curious about this show, and how it will be apart of the marvel verse or completely separate like Arrow is

 

Will they menton Hulk or Spiderman, will it be more of a procedural show like NCIS, or will it be like Alphas, (gvt agency secretly taking down super powered beings)

 

Will there be mutants, or grounded in reality.

I'm looking forward to finding out too. The thing that doesn't make any sense to me is that Samuel L. Jackson was never called on to reprise his role in this series. If the actual director of SHIELD is not in a show called SHIELD then maybe this show will be more focused of the lesser agents that go out on x-files styled missions like Mulder and Scully? I hope not. I want to see some action and super heroes / villains.

      Last Spring was an anime season of epicness. This season is of charm and adorableness. Meiji Tokyo Renka, My Roommate is a Cat, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and ENDRO have all captured my heart and they're not even my favorites this season. I'll def have my work cut out for me doing a full review at the end.

      I've been sick as hell for the last 5 days now. Damn sinus infection has wrecked me. At least I got some time in on God of War. Damn that game is amazing.

      I finally passed the anime in the AoT manga. This next half of season 3 is probably going to end before they explain everything, where the titans came from, the world outside the walls, and how everything happened. It's interesting, but I feel like it makes the series lose a major component which was the mystery of why anything was happening. The anime is about to get as intense as season 1 was, but after that I can see people getting bored with the next season unless the really fly through this section of explanations. I don't think they will though because the anime has been the manga verbatim.

      Totally hyped for the new expansion for FFXIV, Shadowbringers, after this mornings announcements at the Fan Fest in Paris. We're getting a 24-man raid devoted to Nier called YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse and Yoko Taro is overseeing its creation, fucking sweet. It's supposed to further the Nier story as well (and if the concept art is to be believed it's sometime after the Automata storyline).
      Say what you will about FFXIV but god damn do we get some awesome shit due to Square-Enix properties and their connections. I just fucking hope I can finally get my 2B glamour I've been wanting for my character. This just mean I need to quit being lazy and beat Automata before October (when this should probably launch since the expansion comes out in July).

      I'll pass on a review of the Fall simuldub lineup. Mostly because everything I like is bleeding into the new season minus SSSS.Gridman, ZOMBIE LAND SAGA, and Goblin Slayer. There rest was underwhelming, absolute trash, or not dubbed. As someone that enjoys a fanservice fest now and then, I don't get the appeal of SENRAN KAGURA, After 3 eps, I was like "holy shit this is so bad". I guess because it tries to be so serious. Anyways, I watched the first ep of Magical Girl Spec Ops, and it was pretty awesome. I think this is closer to what I was expecting from Raising Project. Seeing a magical girl slice up a bunch of people with a karambit was pretty awesome. Boogiepop and Others is interesting so far so I'll stick with it. Still waiting for Mob Psycho 100 season 2 to start the dub, and I guess I'll ride the hype train for The Rising of the Shield Hero when it starts.
