I don't know how they're bringing back Coulson and I don't know how they can do the Black Widow without Scarlett Johansson butIdontreallycarebecausethiswillbeFUCKINGawesome!

Or it could be really, really lame...

I hope they have a big enough budget. I mean a cgi Iron Man guest appearing or even a digital double of Captain America would be nice.

But it's not so much about the Super heroics as it is about the background lohistics isn't it? It's not trying to emulate the films so much as complement them?

I hope so. That appeals to me.

Yeah, for too long now television has ignored the excitement of logisitcs.

You're mocking me aren't you?

Look at shows like Frontline and Yes Minister. That was all about the background dealings. It's like the muscleheads and ninjas are all the public face and all the faceless guys in the background are where the clever things happen.

Talking of Whedon, did anyone spot his cameo in Iron Man III?

I would love to see agent Coulson come back as Vision. It would break a bit from canon as in the comics Vision had its AI programmed using the brain wave patterns from Wonderman but I dont think its that big of a stretch to change the origin story like this. Wonderman was always a bit of a problematic character anyway, I think they would struggle to do him justice on screen.

I don't think they are bringing in Black Widow. But if they did, there were multiple Black Widows anyway.

Natalia Romanova (who ScarJo played) and Yelena Belova http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Widow_(Yelena_Belova)

There is a series of comics where they do splodey against each other wearing the better parts of the Victoria Secret catalog.

And they say comics don't have cultural significance.

If it is Joss Whedon, there will be a martial arts chick.
That is a certainty.

Don't care. It's Marvel, It's SHIELD, It's Joss.

I may be unhealthily excited about this...

I don't know about you, but this is further proof that televsion, as a whole, just keeps getting better and better. Sure there are the usual disasters, but the Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, The Borgias etc. etc. etc. were not possible 20 years ago. And I believe the same is true for Agents of Shield.

No one sees Coulsons body in the movies so maybe Fury lies a bit...

Am very happy about this series being conifmed lets jst hope the curse of Whedon doesn't mean it being canned after series 2

For Firefly fans, Nathan Fillion seems a very charming, funny guy.
Basically, his first job was on a U.S. soap. He is a Canadian.
In this almost 2 hr interview (good stuff), there is a classic bit about the 'soap take', that long close-up which is a staple of the genre. Fillion tells how he got advice from from a fellow cast member about how to deal with the 'soap take'.

Slide to 46:40.

Could be a prequel to Avengers . . . . remember, SHIELD was around before the first Iron Man film.

No, Wikipedia has it set after Avengers, and the description of Coulson has it that he returns from his 'apparent' death.
