The Avengers blew away my expectations. I'm not much of a comic book reader, but the film was beyond impressive. When I heard Joss Whedon wanted to do a new show based on S.H.I.E.L.D, the agency that helped out The Avengers, I couldn't contain my excitement. Any show Joss Whedon creates is gold.
The show, S.H.I.E.L.D, will take place after the film. ABC President Paul Lee has revealed that the show will focus on agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. He went on to further explain that the agents will have their own stories. While I don't really know much about S.H.I.E.L.D, this would be a great opportunity to catch up. At least until it inevitably gets cancelled.
