Joss Whedon made his mightiest return to television, as Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was watched by 11.9 million viewers last night -- becoming the highest-rated premiere in four years, according to Deadline.
The anticipated series also marks Whedon's return to Tuesday nights, where he once ruled as the creator Buffy, the Vampire Slayer and spin-off Angel.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. follows a team of agents led by the surprisingly resurrected Phil Coulson, as they travel around the world investigating the extraordinary and unknown: the heroes behind the superheroes such as Iron Man and Captain America.
And speaking of Cap, his former love interest Peggy Carter could be coming to the small screen, for Marvel is in the process of developing a television series centering on the beautiful spy, who has been played by Hayley Atwell since 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, and will reprise the role in the Marvel one shot entitled Agent Carter (seen on the Iron Man 3 DVD) and next year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier with Chris Evans suited back as the patriotic super-soldier.
