Here's our first action-packed look at Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., recently greenlit as a series on ABC.
Starring Clark Gregg as the mysteriously resurrected(?) Agent Coulson (see Marvel’s the Avengers – as if I really have to tell you), S.H.I.E.L.D. faces down global threats that even the Avengers aren’t prepared to handle. But you can be sure that the show won’t be devoid of super heroics. As can be seen in this 7 second clip, a hooded man leaps from a tall building carrying a woman. Rumors are already flying that this character is Luke Cage aka Power Man. And that the actor portraying him is none other than Angel alumnus J August Richards, but nothing has been confirmed as yet. But knowing Whedon’s penchant for casting his former shows’ actors, this is hopefully not just a lot of wishful thinking. However, if you watch Once Upon a Time tonight on ABC, it’s rumored that you might see even more from the Whedon written and directed pilot.
Here’s the Vine teaser:
Here’s the full official, just added preview:
And, yes, that is J August Richards tossing people around as if he would be a man named Luke Cage…

Here’s hoping we see a bunch of other lesser known (to the non-geeks) super characters make appearances on the series. Who else is excited for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
