After all those pesky teasers we finally get the full, extended trailer for Marvel and ABC‘s Agents of SHIELD. Not only is this trailer significantly longer than those teases, but it sets up the premise of the series in where SHIELD is investigating super hero occurrences world wide. And, we now know Agents of SHIELD will be airing on Tuesday nights at 8pm. A coveted time slot that will see SHIELD competing with CBS’ reigning ratings king, NCIS.
Can I also add I’m especially excited for another Joss Whedon series on Tuesday nights. It just feels right.
Here’s its official synopsis,
Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films, as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s 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 on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker, Skye (Chloe Bennet).
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel’s first television series, is from executive producers Joss Whedon (Marvel’s The Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who co-wrote the pilot (Dollhouse, Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog). Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias) and Jeph Loeb (Smallville, Lost, Heroes) also serve as executive producers. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
Agents of SHIELD will air Tuesdays at 8pm this fall on ABC. Now that we’ve got a proper look at the series, whatcha think?
