Marvel fans at NYCC were treated to a surprise when Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige announced via video that Clark Gregg would be starring inSHEILD! This is the first big news we've heard about the project. I'm not sure when SHIELD will take place within the Marvel cinematic since Clark Gregg died during Avengers. I personally am hoping that Clark Gregg is alive in the universe and that the show takes place at the same time as Avengers. A prequel story would be exciting and would allow fans to see Clark Gregg in his real job, not just when he's babysitting Avengers.
With Clark Gregg as the only announced star, it's only a matter of time before Marvel announces the supporting cast. I'm hoping Marvel has worked TV clauses into Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner's contracts. Seeing a show focus on the dynamics of SHIELD with Coulson handling both Black Widow and Hawkeye would make for some awesome television. Check back for more updates on Joss Whedon's SHIELD TV show.
