S.H.I.E.L.D. Now Called Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

The much anticipated Avengers spin-off TV show S.H.I.E.L.D. will now be called Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. so as not to be confused with any other shows with so many periods in its title. (Also, Slimer and the Real Avengers was taken.) 

Here’s the show’s just-released synopsis.

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).

Additionally, Angel alum J. August Richards has been cast in what is being called a “super secret role.” What could it be? We think he might be the Life Model Decoy of Nick Fury, because they have those and that’s how Coulson came back from the dead. Prove us wrong.
