If you’re interested in the plot details of the pilot for the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and haven’t found out about it already, Marvel have revealed the official name of the show as well as a new plot synopsis.
AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D
Now this news has been already making its way around the internet, but I’d thought I’d post it here, mainly because I wanted to put something inbetween my review of The Rings of Akhaten and the Comic Book Haul post that I’ll be doing on Wednesday. And, what better, recent, geeky news to cover than this?
Here is the full synopsis:
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.”
As you can see, most have the cast has already been announced. Brett Dalton , Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg are going to be presumably the main stars of this new show, and I for one – will certainly be on board for it. Maybe not straight away, but if I can’t catch it either on TV or on the Internet, I’ll get it on DVD for sure.
Will you be watching Agents of SHIELD when it airs on ABC (US) later this year?
