Admittedly, Marvel is setting the bar very high with the films being produced and looks set to export this success formula to the small screen as it has sealed a deal with ABC to produce the television series Agents of SHIELD that comes from the hand of Joss Whedon, director of The Avengers 1 and 2.

The series will bring us back to the SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson, caution with spoilers died in the first part of The Avengers. In fact, besides recovering the character in the series also recovered the actor who starred in The Avengers, Iron Man or Thor, that is, Clark Gregg. The pilot episode Agents of SHIELD is signed by Joss Whedon in the direction and in the script with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.

And what will treat the series? Agents of SHIELD, which is in production (the pilot was filmed in January and February of this year), revolves around Agent Phil Coulson and a team of agents from the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division traveling around the world defending humanity. Besides the participation of Clark Gregg, the series will feature Brett Grant Dalton as Agent (expert in combat and espionage), Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda (pilot and martial arts), Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz (engineer), Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons (expert in biochemistry) and Chloe Skye Bennett as the hacker.
