The night we’ve all been waiting for is upon us, and we’re just a few short hours away from the premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC! Despite the rumor that Joss Whedon had to rewrite a few scripts because of how awful they were, Whedon seems to confirm the contrary in a recent interview.
Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean he didn’t have to rewrite the scripts, as he says he read it in its outline form, but I think that this is a good sign of how deep this show’s story is going to go. Also, he confirms that he is more of an overseer of the project, not unlike he is with the rest of the Marvel universe, and we know that his brother and sister-in-law, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, will be taking over show-running duties as the show moves forward.
This definitely gets me amped up and excited to watch not only tonight’s episode, but also the rest of the show, which obviously was the point of the interview, but I don’t care. This show looks great, and it’s not something that you’re going to want to miss. Also, be sure to check back here later tonight for our Nerd Bastards review/recap!
