Browncoats, rejoice! Even though it's been over 10 years since 'Firefly' was taken off the air, love for Joss Whedon's sci-fi series keeps on going strong. And while we might not see the series resurrected, it's coming back to life in other forms, such as the newly-announced Firefly Online social online role-playing game.
Late last week we had a chance to get up close and personal with Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." recruit Grant Ward, and now it's time to meet the more Whedon-friendly tech pair backing up the team, Agents Leo Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) and Gemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) with a new behind-the scenes video!
We admit to being a trifle disappointed the Marvel's 'Agents of SHIELD' Comic-Con 2013 poster released earlier today, but it seems the Joss Whedon-directed TV series had a much bigger surprise in store for the day. Veteran composer Bear McCreary ('The Walking Dead,' 'Battlestar Galactica') has signed on to score the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, and revealed a bit of how Agent Coulson inspires the show's heroic theme.
We're less than a week away from Comic-Con 2013, wherein 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' fans will likely get a first look at the pilot, if not some major new details on the series. First and foremost on everyone's minds are certainly the circumstances of Agent Coulson's resurrection, as well as the role 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' will have to the Marvel movies, so what new details does writer Jed Whedon have to offer?
We're still not sure exactly what we'll see from Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' panel at the upcoming Comic-Con 2013 panel, but if the latest promo introducing Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) is any indication, we're in for some new footage and a much more in-depth introduction to the new characters. Are you ready to meet one of the major leaders of ABC's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?'
Apart from a resurrected Agent Coulson, Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' excites us the most for its ability to tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on a weekly basis, rather than waiting for each individual movie. So, which of Marvel's upcoming slate will have the most direct tie into 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?' Why, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' says series star Clark Gregg!
We realize that the prospect of a 'Firefly' shocker a decade after the show had been cancelled seems like a bit of a stretch, but a recently-revealed bit of trivia from Joss Whedon has proven too good to ignore. In promoting 'Much Ado About Nothing,' Whedon revealed his own past Shakespearean ambitions for 'Firefly,' having once envisioned an episode guest starring 'Buffy' / 'Angel' alum and Whedon favorites Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, and James Marsters!
It's not as if there had been any doubt that ABC and Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' would prove the Comic-Con 2013 TV event of the summer, but at last we have confirmation of when and where fans can fight to attend the official panel. Additionally, ABC's 'Once Upon A Time' spinoff 'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' will make its presence known, but who from either series will show up at Comic-Con 2013?
