Comic-Con 2014: Marvel TV Brings ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ and ‘Agent Carter,’ No ‘Daredevil’?
It was of little surprise to fans that DC would dominate the TV side of Comic-Con 2014 given its four offerings, but what of Marvel’s slate, between ABC’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ ‘Agent Carter‘ or Netflix’s ‘Daredevil?’ Find out what to expect from the Marvelous-world of TV at Comic-Con 2014 with their full announcement!
Though perhaps not quite the hot-ticket item it was last year, Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will return to Ballroom 20 this year on Friday, July 25 from 3:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M., bringing with it the likes of executive Producers Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen and Jeffrey Bell, along with cast members Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain de Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge.
Curiously, the same panel will also see discussion of forthcoming midseason arrival ‘Agent Carter,’ from the likes of executive Producers Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely and Louis D’Esposito and of course, series star Hayley Atwell. So, why the short shrift for Marvel’s two live-action series, with ‘Daredevil’ and the Netflix ‘Defenders‘ on the way?
Well, unlike the DC dramas, Marvel may save a few of its bigger fall season announcements for the panel itself, including new characters and storylines to expect. It isn’t clear exactly how much work has progressed on the (apparently) eight-episode ‘Agent Carter,’ and ‘Daredevil’ has only begun shooting in recent weeks. Still, barring some later announcement, we wouldn’t be surprised by, say, a costume reveal?
What do you think? Will Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ or ‘Agent Carter’ be able to outstrip DC’s presence at Comic-Con 2014? What do you most want to see from the new seasons of Marvel’s TV series? We’ll be on the ground in San Diego, so tell us what you’re dying to find out in the comments!
