More Squeal-Worthy Info on Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Thu, Sep 13, 2012 at 2:44 PM

Nerd warlord Joss Whedon spoke with MTV regarding his green-lit new TV series S.H.I.E.L.D—based of course on MY personal fave Marvel comic, Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Oh, and sure I suppose it's based on that Avengers movie as well. Whatever.) But don't expect to see familiar faces. Here's what Joss had to say:

"It's new characters. It needs to be its own thing," said Whedon. "It needs to be adjacent [to the MCU] but you don't want to do a show where you're constantly going, 'Iron Man just left, but he was totally here a minute ago.' You want them to do their own thing."

So what's the basic premise?

"Well, what does S.H.I.E.L.D. have that the other superheroes don't? And that, to me, is that they're not superheroes," said Whedon. "But they live in that universe. Even though they're a big organization, that [lack of powers] makes them underdogs, and that's interesting to me."

S.H.I.E.L.D. as underdogs? Not sure whether I approve or not. OKAY, OKAY, I APPROVE! WHATEVER! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Read the whole thing here.
