After several short teasers, the first full trailer (2:47) for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gives the first real look at what the show is shaping up to be.
In the wake of The Avengers, SHIELD is putting together a very selective response team of experts to handle increasingly common abnormal activity. Super powered beings are popping up like weeds and SHIELD will use all of their high tech gadgetry and superhero friends to defend the innocent.
In addition to the return of Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), the show will star Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen (Eureka), Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Chloe Bennet (Nashville), and J. August Richards (Angel) who’s rumored to be playing Luke Cage. The pilot episode will be directed by Joss Whedon, written by Joss and Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. All three are also serving as Executive Producers. Writers will also include Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias) and Jeph Loeb (Smallville)
Agents of SHIELD will be coming to us this fall as part of ABC’s Tuesday night line up.
