ABC has revealed that Agents of SHIELD will premiere on September 24. Today, a new featurette from ABC introduces us to Agents Fitz And Simmons.
Joss Whedon’s brother, Jed, the co-creator said recently that, “We plan on trying to weave in between the films and try to make them more rewarding on both ends.” Now we’re getting to know some of the Agents that will be in Marvels’ new ABC show, Agents of SHIELD. Watch the featurette below that gives us some details about Agent Fitz and Agent Simmons.
Agents Simmons and Fitz look to possibly be the “nerds” of the show, bringing the technology that will be needed to track down the villains in the show. But, Agent Simmons seems like she can handle herself if the opportunity arises. It’s definitely fun to get a look at some Agents other than Coulson, as we’re already so familiar with him.
While the creators have said to not expect a TV show that looks like a $200 million dollar film, they also explain that it won’t look shabby, and will definitely stand out in ABC’s current lineup. “When fans see this pilot, they’ll be pretty astonished by what we pulled off and the challenge is to do it every week,” says Marvel’s head of TV, Jeph Loeb.
He goes on to say that, “The magic of television is that it’s about characters, and fortunately that’s also what Marvel is also about. We’re not built around a cape and a cowl.” Check out the rest of the details which were recently revealed about The Avengers TV spin-off.
It’s arguably the most anticipated show of the fall 2013 season thanks to the success of the 2012 Avengers blockbuster. In addition to his time with Agents of SHIELD, Joss Whedon will of course be directing The Avengers 2 for release by Disney on May 1, 2015.
Although Joss Whedon has been directing the pilot, his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen will most likely be taking over while Joss will continue to help write some of the episodes. Fans can already see some of the great female lead characters that Joss Whedon is known for writing into his previous television shows.
Are you getting excited by these latest photos and the show premiering on September 24? We’re still curious how or if the Avengers will play a part in the show at all. We can’t imagine that the main characters will see any TV screen time, but it’ll be interesting to see Agents Fitz and Simmons in the world that The Avengers took place in.
