ABC is wasting no time getting the word out about “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” After announcing that the pilot was picked up on Friday, word quickly spread that footage from the show would premiere during the season finale of ABC’s genre-drama “Once Upon a Time” on Sunday night. So in a 72 hour span, we went from not being sure Marvel Comics’ first live-action TV show in years would even be picked up to being in the middle of a promotional hurricane. I’m fine with that.
The 30 second teaser, which can be viewed in all its glory below, does not skimp on the series’ main selling points. Joss Whedon namecheck? Done. Shots of Hulk, Thor, Iron Man and Captain America? Got it. Big, unmistakable connection to the film that everyone saw last year, “Marvel’s the Avengers“? Yep. And loads of Agent Phil Coulson? You bet. If you some how remained clueless about the S.H.I.E.L.D. show, now you know. And you are excited.
Check out the full spot and the first cast photo below.
