Joss Whedon’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

I want to say I’m a Joss Whedon fan, but I must confess my record is spotty. I followed his series Buffy and Angel, only caught a few episodes of Firefly (don’t worry, I’m catching it on Netflix) and I enjoyed the Serenity movie even without being a hardcore Firefly fan. I’ve never seen Dollhouse.

Not the best qualifications in the book. Then again, I actually abhor elitism even in geek fandom. There’s so many times I’ve wanted to scream about people talking about “true” and “fake” fans. You are either a fan or you are not, and no – nobody gets to vote on it. Ok, side quest over – back to the main plot.

We just got our first trailer for the upcoming TV series based on Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D and immediately we get our first reveal. Agent Phil Coulson is alive. Clark Gregg reprises the role from the movies that led up to Marvel’s The Avengers.

Watch on YouTube

I’m intrigued, I must say. Joss could really have something in his hands with this one. And he gets to subtly skirt around the Marvel universe without requiring to bring any superheroes and name dropping along the way. Also, we could bring out names like the the Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine or Dum Dum Dugan.

I guess it’s too much to ask for a Nick Fury cameo?

That will do for now.

    Dollhouse starts a bit fluffy but then it got good…surprise it got cancelled. Looking forward to this.
