ABC’s Avengers spin-off series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is coming later this year. The nearly 3-min trailer of this new Joss Whedon created series has now been released and you can watch it below. I ‘ve seen it a couple of times and have a few questions..
The first thing you may notice in the trailer is the somehow resurrected Agent Coulson whose death was the turning point in the final arc of the Avengers movie. Has he been magically resurrected or was his death meant to have been faked in the movie? And does all this cheapen the ending to the Movie? Either way anything goes in the Marvel Universe!!
The trailer doesn’t say the black superhero’s (played by J. August Richards) name but it looks an awful lot like this is Luke Cage. Any ideas if it’s not him (there’s been some speculation its a new character called Rage)?? If is is Luke does this mean he’s not usable for the later Avengers movies as you would be expected to understand this character from the show and tie in with that storyline? And if the character was used in a movie would it still be Richards playing him?
Is Disney going to rely on this series to help promote the later films they have lined up, and if so if this show flops are Disney going to force ABC to keep airing it so they can help set up the money making movies?
On a lighter note I hope they follow S.H.I.E.L.D standard issue from the comics and make sure the car Lola can fly..
Anyway enjoy the trailer and post you opinions and comments below..
