And it is official. Marvel and ABC Network announced the official TV spinoff for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And it is actually something we all expect. Here's an exclusive announcement from Deadline:
EXCLUSIVE: ABC has ordered a pilot for S.H.I.E.L.D, a live-action series from The Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon, Marvel TV and ABC Studios.
According to the report, Joss Whedon is co-writing the show with his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. Joss is also set to direct the pilot and some other episodes if the schedule permits it.
|Scarlett Johansson's Blackwidow is a prominent S.H.I.E.L.D. agent but there is no word if she will be a regular cast for the series. Let's cross our fingers.|
There are still no details to how will the show run or will characters from the cinematic universe will appear on the show. I for one is confident that there will be appearance from the MCU but possibly not on a regular basis. [SPOILER STARTS] It is also possible that Jesse Bradford (Agent Benny) and Lizzy Caplan (Agent Claire) will be included to the cast since they are now S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents. [SPOILERS END]
Looking forward for this show. Will get you guys updated for more.
