ABC has released an extended promo for Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. with “New World.”
The series has recently been described by Joss Whedon as resembling X-Files in the way they unfold the episodes in that you won’t have to watch every one to understand (ala Lost).
The new S.H.I.E.L.D. series debuts Tuesday, September 24th 8pm ET on ABC.
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 PhilCoulson (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 (ElizabethHenstridge). 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 JephLoeb (“Smallville,” “Lost,” “Heroes”).
