ABC gave viewers a 30-second peek at the new Marvel television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on Sunday night, but it pales in comparison to the first full-length trailer released today.
The new show has been green-lit for the upcoming fall season, and co-stars Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson and Stargate Universe‘s Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May.
May is a pilot and martial artist, and we get our first good look at the character in action in this trailer. Enjoy!
Brett Dalton also stars as Agent Ward, along with Iain De Caestecker as Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons, and Chloe Bennet as Skye — “team” members all introduced in the trailer.
The show is produced by Joss Whedon (Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen (Dollhouse, Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog), along with Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias) and Jeph Loeb.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air Tuesdays at 8/7c this fall on ABC. It’s part of a strategy to revamp the network’s approach to one of TV’s most competitive nights, putting the fall’s hottest new show (based on a multi-billion-dollar film franchise) up against TV’s highest-rated drama — CBS’s NCIS.
