While we most likely won’t be seeing the big-screen Avengers guest-starring in ABC’s new “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” TV series, that doesn’t mean they’ve been forgotten entirely. After all, the new show takes place in the same universe as the films, and we know from the pilot’s synopsis that the first episode takes place in the wake of “Marvel’s the Avengers'” final battle. The pilot has even relocated two big screen presences to the small one: Clark Gregg’s series regular Agent Coulson, and Cobie Smulders, who turns in a guest-starring turn as Agent Maria Hill.
And now, thanks to these 5 new clips, we know that a few other Avengers will be referenced on the show—half of them to be exact! You can check out the first one, where Coulson tries to convince Ming-Na Wen’s Agent Melinda May to “drive the bus,” below.
And see if you can spot all three Avengers references in this final clip!
