Can you hear the blaring trumpets? It's a momentous day! Today is the first day of filming for Joss Whedon and company's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series!
Even the most seasoned of actors cannot be certain during filming whether or not the movie they're a part of will be a success. Case in point, Samuel L. Jackson, who is easily one of the most beloved actors in nerd culture, had no idea what Joss Whedon was up to while filming Marvel's The Avengers.
There are a lot of theories out there about just where Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series will fit into the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and those theories were only spurred along by whispers that Clark "Agent Phil Coulson" Gregg would be lending his talents to the project. So is it a prequel to The Avengers? Is it a different timeline altogether? We've got an answer.
The folks at ABC may not have made a decision just yet on Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. series, but the Avengers director is already plugging away on additional scripts and prepping to direct the pilot. Luckily, he's here to explain how he will bring the insanity of the Marvel universe down to a weekly TV format.
For all the buzz that Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. series has generated over the past few months, it's easy to forget one crucial point—the network hasn't even technically given the show a green light, yet.
Joss Whedon likes killing our favorite characters and, without question, Hoban "Wash" Washburne from Firefly was beloved. One minute he's a leaf on the wind, the next he's a corpse on a stick. Most fans were crushed, but one solitary Browncoat said "No. No more." So he set out to use the power of physics to prove Wash couldn't really be dead.
He may be breaking the box office as Marvel's golden boy with The Avengers now, but it wasn't too long ago that Joss Whedon was best known for the quirky little TV show that put him on the map. So what's his biggest regret from Buffy The Vampire Slayer?
Considering Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. series is coming in the fall of 2013, it makes sense they'd want to round the cast out pretty quickly. Well, the pilot just filled its final opening—say hello to geek girl Skye.
Joss Whedon was kind enough to come out for an Avengers screening at the Hollywood DGA for a little Q&A. Among the many interesting details he shared, most notable are the hero he had scripted and cut and the possibility of a secondary villain.
Comic and TV creator Jeph Loeb was being interviewed about his latest comic project recently when he let slip some big news in the form of when we can expect to see the premiere of Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series.
