Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S.H.I.E.L.D. Coming to ABC written by Sean Gerber August 29, 2012 Yesterday, Deadline reported ABC has ordered a pilot for a television series based on Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. property. Joss Whedon is scripting the pilot and may even direct. Per Variety, Whedon has said the show will be “autonomous” from the sequel to “The Avengers,” so don’t get your hopes up for frequent appearances by Nick Fury or Maria Hill just yet. Meanwhile, there appears to be no stopping Marvel’s bid for worldwide domination in superhero branding. S.H.I.E.L.D.

Only true geeks like us have any idea what S.H.I.E.L.D. even is, let alone have any interest in seeing it in a weekly show. In fact, I would bet even people who have been following the Marvel movie franchise have barely a clue as to SHIELD outside of Nick Fury. I mean, Look! There’s the Hulk!
