Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Gets First Full-Length Official Trailer
Marvel and ABC are offering a better peek at the Avengers spin-off TV show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, set to debut this fall.
Overall, it's not much more than what we already showed you in the first teaser, but things get fleshed out a bit more here, with some more quotes and back up info from the titular agents, as well as that mysterious hooded figure saving kids from a burning building. Ah yes, and...DA DA DA DUH...a very dramatic entrance/return of Agent Coulson. But you knew that already. Enough jibber jabber, have at the trailer already.
We've talked about the cast a bit before, but to make sure that everyone is up to speed, let's get into it.
As you well know, Clark Gregg makes his return as the infamous Agent Coulson. Or Phil, if you prefer. An adamant Captain America fan (he has the entire collector's series of cards, in case you forgot), 'ol Phil debuted in the first movie to set off The Avengers line of dominoes, Iron Man. He would also appear in that film's sequel, as well as Thor, The Avengers, and two Marvel shorts. He proved popular enough in film that his character would go on to appear in both Marvel comics, as well as animated television show in Ultimate Spider-Man, a role that Gregg lent his voice for.
Alongside Gregg are Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker as Agents Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz respectively. These two came through training together and still choose to spend most of their time in each other's company. Their sibling-like relationship is reinforced by their shared nerd tendencies - she deals with biology and chemistry, he's a whiz at the technical side of weaponry.
Nashville's Chloe Bennet comes in as Agent Skye. She's the polar opposite of how you figure a S.H.I.E.L.D agent might come across, using her wit and charm to get the upper hand. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Killing Lincoln's Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward. The "cool under fire" type works in the field, but not so much in his private life, sometimes botching interpersonal relations. He's a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he's the kind of guy that grows on you.
Rounding out the agents is ER's as Agent Melinda "The Calvary" May, a quiet little soldier who doesn't need to boast, and lets her weapon and piloting skills do the talking.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D hits ABS airwaves this fall.
