With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. officially announced as a full series come to ABC this fall, Marvel is starting to tease us all relentlessly. First there was the short viral video of the Hulk wrecking havoc on the news in a clip that has since disappeared from YouTube. Now we’ve got our first real look at the show and the characters. Seven seconds of footage doesn’t seem like a lot and it’s not really. But it does let you see a little bit of what the series has in store: action, futuristic tech, at least some original or minor superheroes, and, of course…. Phil Coulson.
Also, I like how Marvel has embraced the #CoulsonLives hashtag.
But wait, there is more!
The first full promo for the series launched today, too. With even more Phil Coulson action. Which, really, is most of what I care about.
I’m not entirely sure they should have showed the Hulk, Captain America and Thor in any way during the promo just because we know already that they are not going to feature them in the show. Yeah, I suppose it’s necessary to remind people that SHIELD is connected to the Avengers and all but still. I can’t wait to see how the show sets itself a part from the cinematic universe.
