Earlier today, we got a very brief look at Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and now the full trailer has been released. The new series takes place after The Avengers, and has Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) leading a new team of S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives against supernatural forces. Watching the TV spot, I was reminded of Heroes, not in terms of story, but in how far we’ve come in terms of special effects and network TV budgets. And while there will certainly be some cool action on display, the closing joke is a welcome reminder of Joss Whedon‘s influence.
Hit the jump to check out the TV spot. The series also stars also stars Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Chloe Bennet. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres this fall on ABC.
