The first trailer for Marvel’s Joss Whedon-helmed spinoff TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has dropped online, and wow, I love the look of this thing. It appears to be exactly what I wanted: Buffy but with superheroes! And (SPOILER ALERT) while I was sad that Agent Coulsen was killed in The Avengers, I now see the brilliance and necessity of the move. Not only did it give the Avengers the last bit of motivation they needed to rally and fight Loki, but it freed up Clark Gregg to star in what looks to be a terrific TV show! Everyone wins! Well, not Loki. Not yet, anyway.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres sometime in 2013. Don’t touch Lola.
