Clearly, Marvel Studios isn’t only trying to rule the world with its cinematic universe because there’s a growing fanbase that helped build its TV universe.
Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is an American TV series created for ABC by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen. It is based on the Marvel Comics organisation S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division), a fictional peacekeeping and spy agency in a world populated with superheroes and numerous supernatural phenomena. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise.
The series revolves around the character of Phil Coulson (played by Clark Greg) and his team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, who must deal with various unusual cases and enemies, including Hydra and the Inhumans. Whedon began developing a S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot following the success of his film Marvel’s “The Avengers“, and Gregg was confirmed to reprise his role in October 2012.
The series, which was officially picked up by ABC in May 2013, also stars Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth Henstridge. Nick Blood and Adrianne Palicki joined during the 2nd season.
For “Agent Carter”, it is a female-led TV series based on the Marvel One-Shot short film of the same name. It follows the story of agent Peggy Carter (played by Hayley Atwell), who is now working as a British officer representing the Strategic Scientific Reserve after Steve Rogers/Captain America’s supposed death in World War II. As dull as her life would be, Peggy is later asked by the young Howard Stark (played by Dominic Cooper) to co-head his newly created S.H.I.E.L.D with Colonel Chester Phillips.
Written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the series is executive produced by Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee, and Jeph Loeb. It also stars James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Chad Michael Murray as Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as Agent Daniel Sousa, and Shea Whigham as Chief Roger Dooley.
It is unclear when will the network pick up the spin-off series for “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, but it has renewed a number of TV series including “Secrets and Lies”, “Scandal”, “Fresh Off the Boat”, “How to Get Away With Murder”, “American Crime”, “Galavant”, “Once Upon a Time”, and so on.
