Joss Whedon and company have begun filming the pilot episode for the S.H.I.E.L.D. television series. Whedon has written the pilot and also began writing multiple episodes even though the series has not been officially picked up yet. ABC Studios is expected to pick it up after the pilot is filmed and screened.
The biggest question on everyone’s minds is how exactly does Agent Phil Coulson figure into the show. Clark Gregg has already confirmed that he is on the show so whether he is shown in flashbacks, cloned, brought back from the dead or any one of a thousand other ways to bring him back is a mystery. I hope they do the Coulson character’s return justice because his death was the emotional catalyst for [amazon_link id=”B0083SBJXS” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Avengers[/amazon_link] and would lose something if he was brought back cheaply, but this is Joss Whedon so I am assuming the best.
