Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Marvel has greenlit a new television series based on S.H.I.E.L.D, to be produced, written, and if time allows, directed by Joss Whedon. He would be joined by his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.
This seemed like the most logical starting point for Marvel in television. The S.H.I.E.L.D. organization is huge and could cover everything from super-villains to terrorists. Or super-terrorist.
This is just speculation on my part, but I will not be shocked if Agent Coulson makes a comeback n this series. Clark Gregg would make a great connection between the series and the Avengers film universe, especially if the long-running rumors of him becoming the Vision come true.
Fingers crossed that this show has better legs than Whedon’s latest television efforts.
