Extended S.H.I.E.L.D. trailer shows off a ton of new S1 footage

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Monday Night Countdown Preview

It seems like we’ve been waiting to see Joss Whedon’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot for years now (those of us not lucky enough to have been at Comic-Con, at least). But what about the rest of the season?

With the series debuting tonight on ABC tonight, Marvel has debuted a new trailer showing off footage from the rest of season one. Not surprisingly, it looks pretty epic. We’ve heard the production values are through the roof on this seres — and the new clips do not disappoint.

There are ample explosions, some nice looking action set pieces, and some nice character moments showing the team as they begin to bond. Whedon has been hinting all along that the nifty effects (which are ample) are just window dressing for a “small” story of regular people in a not-so-regular world, and we can finally get a better feel for that.

We can’t wait to see what the Buffy and Firefly mastermind does with another set of flawed characters back on the small screen. Here’s hoping those rumors of writing woes turn out not to be true — because it’d be a shame for a show that looks this good to suck.

Check out the new trailer above and let us know what you think about the series.
