Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Pilot and Behind the Scenes Images
ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is headed our way this Fall, Tuesdays, from September 24.
The series, from executive producer Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly), co-writers Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen (Dollhouse, Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog), Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias) and Jeph Loeb (Smallville, Lost, Heroes) is jam packed full of geek credentials and looks like a sure hit for genre fans this Fall.
The series sees Avengers movie actor Clark Gregg reprising his role asAgent Phil Coulson. Coulson’s mission is to assemble a small but highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Their mission is to”investigate the new, the strange and the unknown around the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary.”
The team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage; Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), expert pilot and martial artist; Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), brilliant engineer; and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), genius bio-chemist.
Joining them is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
A collection of image stills from the pilot (including a couple of behind the scenes images with Joss Whedon) were recently made available to us from ABC. Check them out below.
