Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Trailer – The Makings for Epic Television

Get ready, the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. trailer is going to knock your socks off. This show is pretty much all I’m going to be talking about until it’s premiere this fall on ABC. Once the pilot was announced, I’ve been excited for it. Then it was officially picked up and all we saw was a key art photo of Agent Coulson and his rag tag team of S.H.I.E.L.D. special agents. 

Now we have an official trailer that originally aired during Sunday’s Once Upon a Time. While it’s a really short look, clocking it at just 30 seconds, it does show a ton of promise. Obviously it has the pedigree with Joss Whedon, but the action and special effects actually looks pretty solid. My main worry with moving Marvel to television was that the lower budget would cause it look cheesy and small, instead of the epic-ness of the Marvel films.

Having this premiere during Once could mean that they’ll be paired up on the schedule. We’ll have to wait until the TV upfronts announcements to know for sure, but it seems like they could make for a good night of back-to-back TV. Both would handle fantastical elements – one with storybook characters, another with superheroes. And being paired with the successful Once would help bring in new viewers, and likely more female viewers that would not have sought out the show otherwise.
