It is one hell of a day for Marvel. Not only do they announce that production has begun on CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, but they finally reveal a plot synopsis for the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D television show!
In a press release from both Marvel and ABC, the studio revealed that Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) will be back to lead a brand new group of agents in the quest to save the world. Read the official plot below:
Plot: Fresh from his role in “The Avengers,” Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
So there you go, ladies and gentlemen…Agent Coulson is alive and well, ready to kick some baddie butt!
Now all we have to wonder is when his favorite superhero friends will make some cameos and lend a hand…
