Tune ins for this Fall’s television comes with the early and excitable prologue for Marvel TV’s “Avengers” spinoff basing on S.H.I.E.L.D., and a return of prime Whedon time.
Plot for the series was a reported parallel on the last Phase One and incoming Phase Two of the Shared Cinematic Universe. What worked holding to character routes on the solo franchise sequels off Marvel’s $1. Billion plus grossing super-film's memberships may not be that exact transition for television.
With plans and production set in motion, harbinger aspects has a ground zero degree it seems, which comes on a quote by ABC President Paul Lee as reports Screen Rant on a caption priming an interview with IGN.
“There is no question that it is part of the Marvel Universe. In fact, the story takes place after the battle for New York. This is S.H.I.E.L.D. They’re following their own particular stories. There are characters in it, Coulson, who clearly come from Avengers.”
So the series rolls off Phase 1s completion, and reinserts Coulson (under portrayal by actor Clark Gregg) into a primary character. The foreshadow of what’s to come sparks exactly where Fury’s bluff to rouse the Avengers into action may have come into play. A show of vintage Captain America cards gave Fury a playable hand for the audience as well, towing in a plausible return for television.
And on prime time, where shows like “Alias”, “Chuck” or “24” have found strong multi-season followings a program like S.H.I.E.L.D. can be the icing on super spy-fi cake.
For the pilot season, it’s also the man behind the concept’s writings underlines Lee:
“So it’s part of the world, but we’re going to be very, very careful that we don’t tread on the toes of the features and build a whole new world. And that’s what Joss Whedon does better than anybody else. He’s built a world for us.”
