With all of Marvel's ongoing plans surrounding superhero sequels, ABC's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.'

Following Comic-Con 2012, Marvel Studios has largely laid out its plans for the next few years, including 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and 'Ant-Man,' but nothing of The Hulk.

Let's suit up.
