Ming-Na Wen’s Agent Melinda May takes center stage in ABC’s newest character spotlight for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which premieres Tuesday, Sept. 24.
S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen revealed a behind-the-scenes photo of a sign from the set of the Joss Whedon-directed pilot. The project appears likely to receive a series order from ABC.
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.
Teasing a few details about ABC’s newly greenlit S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot, Joss Whedon stressed that the planned series will be largely “autonomous” from the storylines of Marvel’s blockbuster Avengers and its upcoming sequel.
Ending speculation about a live-action Marvel television series, ABC has greenlit a S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot co-written, and possibly directed, by Joss Whedon. He will co-writer with brother Jed Whedon and Jed’s wife Maurissa Tancharoen (both Dollhouse collaborators), who will serve as showrunners.
In addition to six new series’, Felicia Day’s Geek and Sundry YouTube channel includes a brand new The Guild music video called “I’m The One That’s Cool.”
