Marvel really needs to stop toying with my emotions. I can’t have this show for like three or four more months and I really, really want it now. Like right now. The trailer above gives us a much better idea of what the show will be like, what the characters will be like, and a bit about how it’s all going to come together. Phil Coulson seems to be a bit more serious of a character and he’s clearly been changed by the events in New York. Much like Tony has, it seems, though I’m not sure if he’s got the same full blown post-traumatic stress disorder that Tony battles in Iron Man 3. Maybe it’s just the fact that his own team is proving to be just as hard to pull together as the Avengers were and he can’t pull the dying man gig twice. (And I swear to God if they kill him again I am going to shiv someone.) He’s still quirky but there’s a very serious edge and he’s going to get this ragtag crew of people together if it kills him.
It really looks like its going to be a lot of fun but it does not look like they are tying in a whole lot of other properties at this moment. Of course, they haven’t shown us much at all about who they are going to be tracking down so I suppose I can’t really say that just yet with any certainty. It would be fantastic for them to have, like, even a group like the Power Pack show up occasionally. But we’re just going to have to wait and see how things progress.
I am just so unreasonably excited for this.
