    ha this is great.

    • old hippie

      …sounds like Uma Thurmonds TV pilot explanation in Pulp Fiction.

  • Batman2029

    Awesome!! I can’t wait to see this!

  • Alex Hajna

    Kind of a bummer Cobie Smulders won’t be joining the cast. Maybe once How I Met Your Mother is finished — if SHIELD is still running — she’ll join.

    • Lex Walker

      That would make it much better, and it would give them a badly needed opportunity to further develop Maria Hill, because we didn’t get much sense of her character in Avengers.

  • shadypotential

    its going to get cancelled. fanboys don’t watch TV.

    • Nerdgasm

      What are you talking about? Walking Dead, Archer, All of adult swim and even smallville was kept alive because of fanboys.

      • shadypotential

        put a dick in ya ear and fuck what ya heard

      • Haha

        I told that to your mom when she told me she was pregnant

      • shadypotential

        why don’t you practice safe sex and go f*** yourself?

      • Nerdgasm

        lol why are soo angry??

      • shadypotential


      • Nerdgasm

        You are an idiot and someone should have aborted you…

      • shadypotential

        i’ll tell your mom that when i see her tonight

  • Frank

    I’m looking forward to seeing the show, and granted it’s just a photo, but outside of Clark Gregg, the cast looks really…. generic.

    • Jim

      Agreed but at least it has Mulan in the cast.

    The Scooby gang is back. It seems the same series Whedon is doing since Buffy: a bunch of misfits fighting the forces of evil. Pass.

  • Douglas Coleman

    The cast is very… pale.

    Is it just me or are they all… Really short? >.> I’m just Saiyan.

    • Romsy

      Exactly what I thought. They all look 5 foot nothing.

    • Lex Walker

      At most they’re all about as tall as Clark Gregg’s 5’9″ if not less.

  • Red Rowz

    Is it just me or do they all look like children?

  • Btbcc12859

    Since Disney owns ABC is this really a surprise the show got picked up

  • ervin

    maybe, just maybe, by the end of the season this is going to dig its way from being utterly worthless to being mediocre, irritating and forgetable – much like agent coulson’s character… i still don’t get what is the big deal with that annoying guy
