That’s Agent M. a.k.a. Ryan Penagos, Executive Editorial Director, Marvel Digital Media Group pictured above. After watching his latest teaser video for ABC and Joss Whedon‘s S.H.I.E.L.D. I’ve decided he deserves a swift Kick in the Knackers, a Thump to the Testicles, a Nudge to the Nads, a Sock to the Stones, a Punch to his Plums, a Bash to the Bollocks, a Clout to his Cojones . . . damn, I really can do this all day, but I’d better get to the rest of the story.
For those of you living in a cave the last six months, there was a little movie called The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon (Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse) which has opened the door for a television show about Marvel Comics super secret spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate).
*Interesting side story -S.H.I.E.L.D.’s original name stood for Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division. It was changed in 1991.
Wow, that was not really interesting, and not much of a story either, much like this teaser trailer below. Go watch the video, then join me after to vent your frustrations and let out your anger. After all, the Dark Side isn’t going to do all the work, you’ve got to get off the sofa and get a little angry.

What did you think? Is it just me or does this guy enjoying tweaking our noses just a bit too much? I do hope he doesn’t learn that Comic Con Hall H Lesson:
It’s all in fun until some Harry Potter fan stabs you in the eye with a pen.
On a serious note, I do hope that the teaser trend doesn’t devolve into marketing trolling. With most things, it’s funny a couple of times, then it moves quickly to annoying, and lastly becomes uncool, turning people off. Agent M, you’ve got a good thing going, don’t frack it up.
