The great news is that Clark Gregg will be in the series as Agent Phil Coulson, the agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. who was integral in the recovery of Thor’s hammer and appeared in Marvel’s The Avengers. I view this as important because he’s both entertaining and it will help the continuity of the Marvelverse from cinema to the flat screen.
This is a show I am definitely looking forward to. Marvel has really done such a good job with their Avengers properties and I’m eager for the rest of “Phase II” to continue. Having the television show added in is a bonus that I look forward to thoroughly enjoying.
Since the announcement on Friday, there’s been some activity on the marketing front, including some videos and a blog from a group called The Rising Tide. The group seems to be involved with the storyline, and the videos they are posting seem to be an attempt to “expose the S.H.I.E.L.D.” Undoubtedly more viral content will be originating from that site. Here’s a glimpse at the first promo also released this weekend:
I just hope it doesn’t take crazy silly turns like Supernatural.
