Check Out The Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Character ID Badges And Promo Images
I don’t think anyone was too concerned about ABC not picking up Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a new series this fall, but we were all excited to hear the news last night that it had indeed been ordered to series. The pilot, directed by Joss Whedon, will air later this year when all the networks roll out their new shows for the fall around August or September-ish. The first promo for the S.H.I.E.L.D. show will air this Sunday during the Once Upon A Time season finale starting at 8pm EST. If you don’t want to set through the show, have no fear because as soon as it’s online we’ll have it here for you on CBT. But to hold us over until tomorrow, some new character badges and promo images have been released.
The banner above, the full cast picture in HD, and the article’s icon you see on the homepage were official Facebook account for the show. The character ID badges were rolled out by the SHIELD TV fansite. The image of Skye is particularly interesting though. ABC prematurely released a 7 second teaser video for the show featuring footage from The Incredible Hulk where Abomination was smashing some cars. The lower right hand corner of the video had a “RISING TIDE” icon. As you can read in the official synopsis, Skye the hacker is one of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s first cases. What do you think of the new material? Are you excited for the preview tomorrow?
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.
