‘Agents of SHIELD’ will follow on from Avengers movies
In a new interview for Entertainment Weekly Jed Whedon, the brother of Joss Whedon discussed the new ABC series ‘Agents Of SHIELD’ and revealed that the series would follow on from the Avengers movies.
“We plan on trying to weave in between the films and try to make them more rewarding on both ends,” said Whedon.
“In any of these [episodes], you can always ask, ‘Why don’t they just call Iron Man?’ – they are aware of each other, but they do have to have their own lives.”
Clark Gregg – who returns to his role of Agent Phil Coulson in the show has claimed that SHIELD has “incredible visual effects and stunts” unlike anything “seen on TV before”.
“When fans see this pilot, they’ll be pretty astonished by what we pulled off and the challenge is to do it every week,” said Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb. “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.”
Marvel’s ‘Agents of SHIELD’ will air on Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC this fall.
