    The logo for Marvels' Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the television series spinoff inspired by the Marvel movies, in particular The Avengers, has gotten an official description, logo, and first cast photo.

    ... and the first official promo has been released. Earlier a 7 second clip was floating around the net featuring the Hulk rampaging but it was quickly pulled after being hit with a DMCA notice. The official promo is fast paced but you can get an idea of some of the characters being shown and the voice over from Agent Coulson gives it a bit of a Fringe vibe. "We work the cases that SHIELD hasn't classified. The strange, the unknown."

    The clip is now available from the official Agents of SHIELD site.



    Personally I'm thinking that might be Abomination instead of the Hulk because, even though the video is really grainy, it kind-of-sort-of-maybe looks like spiny texture on the arms. That would allow post-Avengers Hulk to still be a 'good guy' in the current Marvel universe fighting with SHIELD instead of against it.

    I'll be really interested in seeing how well this series is received. I can see it going either way, it becomes massively popular and helps grow the marvel universe in the public eye (not that it needs much help at the moment) or it has too small a following to justify the costs and gets cancelled after one season.

    Hope Whedon is hands-on with this. I've ambivalent about Shield/Avengers but totally fanboy on Whedon.
    wonder if anyone will ever try a tv of Astro City?

    Saw an extended preview for this now, and I'm actually excited for it. Now in a state of "can't wait"

    For those of you who've seen the Avenger's movie, you'll notice that Agent Coulson is back from the dead (for those of you who haven't watched #Avengers . . . oops, sorry :D)

    I'm interested to see how they do this - the trailers looked good, I'm quite excited to watch it (especially now Supernatural is off air until we get Season 9)




    Written by Joss Whedon, I have high hopes for this show!

    Got it recorded but not watched as yet, read a couple of review which seem encouraging.

    I enjoyed it. Had the quirky humour we expect from Joss Whedon - some real laugh out loud moments - action scenes, nods towards the movies. A nice pilot episode.

    Just finished watching this and thought it was good, very enjoyable. Will keep watching the rest of the series.

    @Nix, how is it turning out in the UK? The US ratings have been pretty good and ABC has ordered a full season of the show.

    It's not going down very well here, people I know are losing interest and switching it off... That's also according to the newspapers here too... The difference is probably the fact that it's being hacked up on C4 rather than the full show over where you are. Due to this I've deleted my recordings and will wait for a box set to come out on DVD. :rolleyes:

    Ouch! Are they actually removing scenes or just chopping it with bad commercial breaks?
