"Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D."

"We don't just want to be an 'Easter Egg' farm," said "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." co-creator Joss Whedon.

"This show has to work for people  who aren't going to see those movies ("The Avengers") and haven't seen them before.

"ABC and Marvel have been very active in making sure this show is what they want for their company and their network and their audiences, and at the same time, very supportive of the vision that we first laid out to them. 

"The most important thing is that we all are trying to make the same show. We're all on the same page, which has occasionally not happened to me."

The new ABC TV series is produced by Marvel Television, and is set in the 'Marvel Cinematic Universe', sharing continuity with the films in that franchise.

"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." revolves around the character of 'Phil Coulson', with Clark Gregg reprising the role from "The Avengers" feature film.

The pilot, also written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, was directed by Joss and will premiere September 24, 2013 :

"...'Agent Phil Coulson' puts together a small team of 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' agents to handle strange new cases.

"Each case will test the team in cooperation and ingenuity as they try to work together figuring out newly emerging superhuman individuals in the world..."
