After a few months of casting news, this week finally brought a look at the SHIELD plot synopsis as well as the show’s official title. First of all, the show will be titled: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
I have no problem with the title, although it does sound a bit clunky. Heck, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was just as long and pretty much follows the same kind of rules, plus adding Marvel’s name to the title will help the uninformed know what it is about when it hits TV.
Hell knows, Joss Whedon needs all the help he can get to convince normal people to watch his brilliant television shows. Now, on to the SHIELD plot synopsis.
Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown.
There is nothing in the description that explains how the deceased Agent Coulson is coming back, but I stand by my opinion that he never died and that Nick Fury lied to the Avengers to get them to work as a team and do what needed to be done.
Here is more from the SHIELD plot synopsis about the characters on the show.
That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
The synopsis also goes on to mention that these are normal, yet highly skilled, humans fighting in a world of super heroes, aliens and more. So, it’s kind of like the world of Buffy.
