Joss Whedon And The Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Cover EW: Plus First Clip From The Show Hits


shield bannerJoss Whedon and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have taken over EW. The group graces the cover of the latest magazine (which you can see below) and Whedon talks about his impressive body of work on the inside. The writer/director’s past projects are explored, but it’s what the future holds that is most interesting. In a huge 10-page interview Whedon talks about the upcoming Marvel show as well as Avengers: Age of Ultron. We’ll have to wait until Friday to see if the director spills any details, but the site has released a quote from the geek guru on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Whedon has said time and time again that S.H.I.E.L.D. will explore the regular people of the Marvel Universe, but now he uses an example from the world of Buffy to drive the point home one more time:

This is basically a TV series of ‘The Zeppo’ [episode of Buffy], which was a very deliberate deconstruction of a Buffy episode in order to star the person who mattered the least. The people who are ignored are the people I’ve been writing as my heroes from day one. There’s a world of superheroes and superstars, they’re celebrities, and that’s a complicated world — particularly complicated for people who don’t have the superpowers, the disenfranchised. Now obviously there’s going to be hijinks and hilarity and sex and gadgets and all the things that made people buy the comics. But that’s what the show really is about to me, and that’s what Clark Gregg embodies: the Everyman.

EW also unveiled the first clip from the highly anticipated S.H.I.E.L.D. show. We’ve seen several character videos and some snippets of footage, but this is the first scene we’re seeing in its entirety. The video was rolled out on EW‘s Facebook page. We get to see Agent Dalton meeting tech experts Fitz and Simmons in a funny exchange over a cell phone. Coulson and his beautiful gal Lola make an appearance as well.
