Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 30 Second Promo Hits; Viral Site Launches
We got a 7 second teaser this morning, but the full promo for ABC and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has hit. The trailer aired during tonight’s season finale of Once Upon A Time. If people talking on Twitter is any indication, the show is going to have some pretty impressive viewing figures.
Along with the trailer trumpeting Agent Coulson’s revival, a new viral site for the show has launched. WeAreTheRisingTide.com (click here to visit the site) went online earlier today and it features several very short videos of some Marvel heroes and villains in action. Most of the clips are cut from the movies Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk. As we learned from the synopsis, tracking down the hacker group Rising Tide is going to be the S.H.I.E.L.D. team’s first mission in the pilot. The site is interesting and we should definitely keep an eye on it to see what they will release next. Check out the promo below, click over to the viral site, and sound off below with your thoughts. Did the teaser get your attention? Are you ready for Whedon’s pilot later this fall?
Joss Whedon (MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) shows us not all heroes are super with MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet—the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). Their initial investigations lead them to civilian computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual—of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents—that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.
Executive Produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen (Dollhouse, Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog), Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias) and Jeph Loeb (Smallville, Lost, Heroes) comes Marvel’s first live-action TV series, MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
