AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013): New Title + Official Synopsis Released

Clark Gregg Shield

S.H.I.E.L.D. now titled Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Plot Synopsis. ABC’s S.H.I.E.L.D. will now be officially called Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but many seem to be referring to the show now as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Joss Whedon directed the pilot for the series but it still has not been given an air date or been picked up by ABC to be turned into a series. The series “will pick up after the events of The Avengers. Despite its links to the [Marvel Cinematic Universe], it will largely avoid bringing in the more famous superheroes from the big screen.”

The official plot synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:

Joss Whedon shows us not all heroes are super with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, Marvel’s The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. 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.”
