S.H.I.E.L.D series has a new name!

S.H.I.E.L.D series has a new name!

Either because they’re gluttonous and want their title swelled across a bigger subdivision of the TV guide, or simply because Marvel have plans for a movie version sometime (they did at one stage), ABC has opted to rename their “S.H.I.E.L.D” series to…. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

How very Cartoon Network of them!

Same thing though, just with 10% more lettering – apparently. It explores the agency we’ve seen in the Marvel comic book movies – primarily, “The Avengers” (2012) – and reintroduces to audiences the thought-dead Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg). I’m guessing he’s either playing his twin ‘Curly’ or a decoy model.

ABC issued the information about the title change and a synopsis for the programme – which doesn’t have an air-date yet – in the following press release :

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.”
