UPDATE: AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Promo Teases CAPTAIN AMERICA’s Shield, A New Subtitle, And Promises Of Earth-Shattering Revelations


shieldABC unleashed a juicy new teaser for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. during one of the endless commercial breaks for the Oscar’s red carpet pre-show.The 20-second teaser hypes the show’s return this coming Tuesday and promises some seismic shifts as the “Marvel Universe is changed forever.” We get quick cuts of several scenes of action featuring, among other things, the reveal of Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) aka Deathlok‘s leg.

While that’s exciting in its own right since we’ve only seen the briefest of glimpses in one of the show’s post-credits sequences, the biggest things have to be the addition of a subtitle for the show as well as Captain America‘s shield taking the place of the usual logo. That the show is now apparently Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Uprising signals there really is a monumental shift in the show’s direction. Cap‘s shield probably plays a part in that. We know the show will help set a few things up for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and that movie is about S.H.I.E.L.D. getting compromised causing Cap and Black Widow to go rogue, so maybe Coulson and company see a few hints as to what Cap will be up against in the new movie. Coulson and his crew going rogue would make for an interesting story, huh? The last time the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo was changed, it featured a bird wearing an eye patch. That was teasing a cameo from Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury, so maybe after Lady Sif we’ll have a Captain America-related cameo. While I don’t expect to see Chris Evans anytime soon, we could have one of his allies showing up. What do you think?

UPDATE: The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Facebook page have released an HD version of that spectacular promo.
