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.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.

      My router shat out on me today and screwed me for over an hour as I thought it was my internet. My power went out and after it came back on my router started freaking out and will only stay connected for 5 seconds at a time and then go down again for 4-5 minutes. I hooked up my old back up router in the meantime. Now I have to call up the support line tomorrow and see if Tenda will honor their warranty. I ordered a TP-Link router off amazon a little while ago for a cheap $59 on sale. It seems decent enough and I've never had any issues with TP-Link before.

      I went golfing over the weekend for the first time in about 3 years and surprised the hell out of myself by actually making par on 2 par 3 holes. I definitely need to work on my long game. I can hit a 3 wood decent enough by my skill with a driver is atrocious.
