SDCC ’13: New Batch Of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Images Plus Cast And Crew Interviews Reveal A Spoiler
ABC and Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. held their big panel last night and stunned those in attendance by screening the pilot episode written and directed by Marvel godfather Joss Whedon. By all accounts, it more than lived up to all the hype. While the rest of us are waiting until this fall to see the pilot, we can find some comfort in the string of interviews and images that have hit since yesterday’s panel.
Nine images (via CBM) have been released in high quality from the pilot. There are a few we’ve seen before, but the majority are fresh images. We also get two great looks at Cobie Smulder’s Agent Maria Hill, who will appear at least in the first episode of the series. The rest show Agent Coulson, Joss Whedon, and scenes with the rest of the S.H.I.E.L.D. crew.
Along with the images come a few interviews on the red carpet after the pilot was screened. IGN caught up with Jeph Loeb, Jeffrey Bell, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jed Whedon, and Ming Na Wen. Everyone but Ming Na Wen was either a producer or co-creator of the show, so they offered up interesting information without revealing too much. Ming Na Wen, however, let lose a pretty big casting spoiler. If you’re a fan of the Whedonverse, you’ll be pretty excited to hear who is hopping over to the world of S.H.I.E.L.D. I won’t mention it here, but you can see her embarrass herself in the first video.
