Twitter exploded when photos from the set of S.H.I.E.L.D. were tweeted earlier this afternoon. Although the photos show nothing about the actual show, you can see super cool picutres of Joss and his awesome sneakers!
S.H.I.E.L.D. has been confirmed to be set after the Avengers battle in New York, which means Coulson is alive, or his being 'alive' will somehow be explained in the pilot. Was Fury lying about his death to motivate the team? Obvioulsy, S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to be a very different show since it's audience is already familiur with the universe, the Hellicarrier, and Coulson. But, how will fans react to seeing the Marvelverse on the small screen? S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't have the multi-million dollar budget Iron Man or Thor had. Joss has commented several times about how S.H.I.El.D. needs to stand on its own and be its own thing:
It’s new characters. It needs to be its own thing. It needs to be adjacent [to the movies]. 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 go off on their own thing, and say, well, what has S.H.I.E.L.D. got that the heroes don’t have? And part of that for me is, they’re not superheroes, but they live in that universe. That makes them a little bit — even though they’re a big organization — underdogs, and so that’s really interesting to me. -Joss Whedon
I'm really excited to see what Joss Whedon is going to do with S.H.I.E.L.D. and am curious to see how and if any Avengers make cameos. I'd love to see either Director Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) or Agent Hill (Cobie Smulders) have a small role in the series. Not only would having Hill and Fury in S.H.I.E.L.D. keep consitency with the Marvel Cinemanatic universe, but it 'd be awesome to see the three of them bantering Whedon style.
Check out some of the photo's tweeted from executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen.
(Yup, those are Joss's)
(This is also Joss. Just a creepy shot)
