We recently reported that Marvel and Disney had recently signed Joss Whedon to a 3 year deal that included writing and directing “Avengers 2”, but also to developed a Marvel TV Series for ABC. Now, we have news that the Live-Action TV Series will be about “S.H.I.E.L.D.”.
The new show will be written by Whedon, who will also direct the pilot episode. Production is set to start immediately. This marks a return to television for Whedon, who created such cult favorites as “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly,” and “Dollhouse.”
“SHIELD” is ran by Nick Fury, who recruited Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, and Thor to join his agents to fight Loki in “The Avengers.” No word if Nick Fury will be one of the characters in the TV series or whether Samuel L. Jackson will be involved.
