For more than 30 years, PaleyFest has held panel sessions and screenings that connect the worldwide community of television fans with the casts and creators of their favorite TV shows.  One of the panels was to celebrate the ABC television series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with its cast and creative team.  Collider was there to attend the panel, and we’ve compiled some of the highlights.

During the presentation, executive producers Jeph Loeb, Jeffrey Bell, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, along with actors Clark Gregg and Ming-Na Wen, talked about how this show originally evolved, how they conceived the characters that make up this team, already knowing how Season 2 and Season 3 will end, how Agent Coulson on the TV show is different from Agent Coulson in the movies, the show’s jaw-dropping surprises, that there are seven episodes left, that the events in Captain America: The Winter Solider will affect things in the April 8th episode, that Rocket Racoon and Scarlett Witch are welcome on the plane, that Bill Paxton’s Agent Garrett will return this season, whether some of the S.H.I.E.L.D. cast could appear in the upcoming Netflix series, and how there’s still no official pick-up yet for Season 2.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

As part of the TCA Press Tour, we were invited out to the super-secret filming location for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., to discuss new characters, exciting upcoming storylines, and possibilities for the remainder of the season, which returns to ABC with new episodes on February 4th.  While there, we got to preview the already announced Stan Lee cameo and get glimpses of Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) battling Asgard villain Lorelei (played by Elena Satine), Mike Peterson’s (J. August Richards) transformation to Deathlok, and the introduction of Agent John Garret (Bill Paxton).  If those clips were any indication, things are about to get bigger, more explosive and even more connected to the Marvel universe.

While onboard the CXD 23 Airborne Mobile Command Station, executive producers Jeph Loeb and Jeffrey Bell talked about the velocity of their storytelling and why the show has been a slower burn, how they view the first half of the season as the first hour of a movie, that they wanted to make viewers care about these characters above everything else, how they approached developing Deathlok, whether something from the show could cross over to the films, how they put the storytelling first, and that they try to get something funny, sad, wondrous and beautiful into every episode.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers
