With Comic-Con International just around the corner, Marvel and ABC kick off a promotional push for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with branded San Diego trolleys and the debut of a video series introducing the drama’s characters.
Speaking to journalists at the Television Critics Association’s winter tour, ABC’s Paul Lee said the network is hopeful Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. will receive a series order. Whedon is already working on additional scripts.
Relative newcomer Brett Dalton has singed on to Joss Whedon’s ABC S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot, joining a cast that includes Clark Gregg, Ming-Na, Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker. Production is expected to begin in mid-January.
