This won’t come to a surprise to anyone, but Marvel’s new TV series, ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, has been picked up by ABC for this fall’s new TV season. The word on the pick up comes from Deadline. Also, if that wasn’t enough of an indicator, it looks like ABC accidentally uploaded a short viral video for the series before they were supposed to. The short footage shows the Hulk under surveillance by the secret organization, and he doesn’t seem all too pleased about it. Clark Gregg, who returns as Agent Coulson in the series, tweeted the link to the video after, so all signs definitely point to this being very real. The rumor also says that a promo for the series will air during the season finale of ABC’s ‘Once Upon a Time’ this weekend. (UPDATE: The video has sadly been pulled. We’ll repost it when it becomes available.)
This is definitely very exciting for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, , and I can wait to get our first look at footage from the series. The pilot episodes was written and directed by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Firefly), who will be a consultant on the show, and stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet and J. August Richards. Hit the jump to check out the short viral video, and leave your thoughts on the series below. Are you excited for ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’?
