It’s been a big week of teasers for the upcoming spin-off Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and now Marvel/Disney/ABC are giving us the first tease of the show via their Vine account. It’s only 6-seconds, but it might just be the most action packed 6-seconds of your Internet life!
What instantly strikes us is how high the production values are going to be on this pilot, directed by Joss Whedon himself. The cast are showcased, including Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). Of course, the cause for excitement is that Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) lives again.
There’s a few surprises in there too. We break it down after the video…
Let’s break it down a bit, shall we?
Is anybody else thinking Luke Cage here?
Is anybody else thinking…nevermind.
Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) does not look like somebody we want to mess with…
Our powers of deduction tell us this S.H.I.E.L.D. van is in California. Are they going to Disneyland? Are they???
We don’t know what this probe is, so we’re going to speculate that it is our favourite thing from that comic we like.
And finally, the Son of Coul lives!
