S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series by Marvel (and Whedon) at ABC
 
I thought I might share this news. Here’s the article.

Joss Whedon had signed a contract with Marvel to help developing this series.

So, for those who are well-versed in Marvel comics, what do you think this S.H.I.E.L.D TV series will contain? More SHIELD agents' daily routines? Do you think it will feature (minor) superheroes & supervillains from Marvel universe?

We might as well post some updates of the series development here. ;)

I really hope that this will be tied with the upcoming Marvel movies, unlike Smallville which eventually create a universe of it’s own.

Whoa, wait a minute, is Samuel Jackson reprising his role as Nick Fury?
If so, this would be his first TV series as a regular ever.
AFAIK, he's never done syndicated series, only been guest appearances in some like Boondocks.

Don't we already have this show? Isn't it called Fringe? While the idea is interesting, and getting Joss Whedon back on television sounds great, the end result for this type of show would undoubtedly be a police procedural of some sort (of which there are already too many), only with the occasional mention of some minor named villains and heroes. I don't know if that is enough to keep the geeks involved or draw in the average viewer.

That being said, A.I.M. and HYDRA would undoubtedly be the main villains of the series.

If Whedon gonna make S.H.I.E.L.D as a Marvel movies tie-in:

For a TV series to be a side-story to the upcoming Marvel movies, it will be very interesting and will draw a lot of audience considering how well-known The Avengers nowadays. It will help building the anticipation for Avengers 2. Given the contracts of The Avengers’ cast, they might make a cameo for 1 or 2 episodes (moar Black Widow please!:D). Also, who knows, they might be able to include some origin stories of some lesser-known (and less “glamorous”) Marvel villains. There’s a number of them, I assume.

I can see this being something along the lines of the one-shot stories Marvel does for the MCU movies, like the following:

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)

Which reminds me, they need to make COULSON, AGENT OF SHIELD a major character for this series. :nod:

Some (late) updates:

Marvel’s ‘SHIELD’ TV Show To Feature New Characters

Whedon is interested in making this series due to how "underdog" S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are compared to our superhero/supervillain friends. :p

I still have some trepidation for this title. While I enjoy the idea of such a series (and sincerely hope it will be a Marvel equivalent of DC's Gotham Central), I can't help but feel they are creating Fodder: The Series. Still, it will be interesting to see just what storylines can be created; who the characters, new and/or old, will be; and how this all ties in to the movies.

This reminded me. In the old days of superhero comics, Superheroes fight normal criminals. Bank Robbers, kidnappers, and all sort of other small time villains that these days don't even get a name.

Now of course, they are busy averting catastrophe, usually against supervillains. You really don't want to send Ironman to sort out a home invasion case. So Shield can be the sort of the middle-ground team; taking care of what cops can't handle, so that Supers can concentrate on more important things.

There's plenty of street-active superheroes that do that though.

While FF, Thor and Ironman are fighting Skrull invasions and Ultron's cyber-takeovers,
Daredevil, Spider-man, Luke Cage, and others are catching petty criminals in New York.

Focus of SHIELD is homeland security, be it superpowered beings or foreign espionage and international criminal organizations.
NOT policing of local criminals.

SHIELD is more-or-less an uber-powerful combination of DHS and CIA. Not FBI.

Another news about S.H.I.E.L.D.'s main characters here.

AGENT ALTHEA RICE: Also known as “The Calvary,” this hard-core soldier has crazy skills when it comes to weapons and being a pilot. But her experiences have left her very quiet and a little damaged.

AGENT LEO FITZ and AGENT JEMMA SIMMONS: These two came through training together and still choose to spend most of their time in each other’s company. Their sibling-like relationship is reinforced by their shared nerd tendencies – she deals with biology and chemistry, he’s a whiz at the technical side of weaponry.

Clark Gregg will reprise his role as Agent Coulson in the series' pilot episode. Link is here.

Gregg previously played Coulson in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and Marvel's The Avengers, as well as Marvel One-Shots "The Consultant" and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer."

The actor made a surprise appearance at the panel to talk about his role as Principal Coulson on "Ultimate Spider-Man" before playing a special video from Marvel’s The Avengers director Joss Whedon and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, announcing Gregg's return to the role of Agent Coulson in the upcoming pilot. Whedon will also co-write the pilot to "Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D." with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.

This character was named Althea Rice in the list of alleged characters for the series, where her nickname was 'The Calvary'.

Wen joins actor Clark Gregg who will be reprising his role as Agent Phil Coulson in the upcoming TV series.

If I’m not mistaken, Ming-Na Wen is the Chun-Li in the 90s Street Fighter movie. Hmm... this makes me curious.

Besides potential enemies like AIM or the Ten Rings I can see Mr. Blue aka The Leader as an enemy if it is post Avengers. Since there is no planned Hulk movie.

Among the stuff under the basement classified under Phase II was the Destroyer and Leader in Fury's Big Week. Where IM 2, Thor and I. Hulk occurred in a span of a week.

Lets just say the character synopses make me twitch a bit ... not in a good way. But they're just soundbite bullshit - we'll just have to see how they are actually implemented.

Street Level Superheroes, eh?

That series would get watered down...then again if Jack Bauer can kill and torture somewhat indiscriminately for 5 or so seasons why not Frank Castle :)?

That being said, why couldn't the Punisher and a slew of other lower ranking heroes appear in this series? I could see this series as a great staging ground for a slew of Marvel movies. Specifically, use the series to establish the backstory and introduction, then the film could just focus on the character and whichever story arc Marvel wishes to produce. This would be a great way to relaunch Daredevil or even the Fantastic Four and introduce heroes like Luke Cage and Iron Fist as well as the mutants (who have been missing from the current version of the Marvel Filmverse).

The fact is as the Mavel movies kept going, the daily lives of the normal peoples around the world changes after each crisis. This TV series would be a good way to portray how their lives is different to our own.

It's A Wrap!

That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).

Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.

Executive Produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen ("Dollhouse," "Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog"), Jeffrey Bell ("Angel," "Alias") and Jeph Loeb ("Smallville," "Lost," "Heroes") comes Marvel’s first live-action TV series, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
