Tease Me, Baby! – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
All of us here at DOOM Towers love the Marvel Movieverse but wish there was something to tide us over until the next movie coats us in delicious superhero action. Our hopes were answered in the form of Joss Whedon, American TV network ABC, and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Welcome to Level 7.
I don’t have to explain what this series means, you ought to know by now but to the uninitiated, S.H.I.E.L.D. is the covert ops organisation involved in all the Avengers movies. Led by Nick Fury, they protect the world from bad guys but also watch over the good guys, often involving themselves in their affairs and uniting them against planetary threats. Take a look at the trailer, everything will be explained better.
Interview from Hell
Brett Dalton seems to be our POV character, Agent Grant Ward, as he explains what S.H.I.E.L.D. stands for and what his security clearance allows him to know, shortly before his expectations are firmly kicked in the teeth by the arrival of…
Coulson Lives, bitches! Clark Gregg reprises the lovable Phil “Agent” Coulson. His apparent demise in Avengers won’t keep him from doing his job though as he leads this new team and show. How is he alive? What happened to him? We can only whisper of Life Model Decoys and Cover-Ups until the show airs but I bet it’ll be a fantastic reveal.
Agents of N.E.R.D.
Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge play Agents Fitz and Simmons, respectively. They are the team’s Tech expert and Biology expert, again respectively. I’m sure these two will be a fun double act to follow.
Chloe Bennet is Skye, outspoken civilian recruit and hacker. Not much say about her but look at Coulson’s smile when they go to snatch her in the middle of a rant against S.H.I.E.L.D. He’s just precious!
J. August Richards, he of Angel fame, plays an unspecified superhero in the pilot but it’s not much of a stretch to think that he may be playing street-level hero Luke Cage. We’ll just have to wait and see but he’s a damn fine actor so I wouldn’t have a problem with him playing Cage.
That’s it for now folks! When this series debuts in the Fall, I have no doubt that the pilot will be spectacular but whether the series will be a mainstay is up to the creative team and the stories but I have faith that it will be awesome.
