While Disney and Marvel’s The Avengers has owned movie screens this year, ABC is looking to bring the peacekeepers of S.H.I.E.L.D. to the small screen.  The network (owned by Disney) has greenlit a live-action pilot to showcase the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate (or is it the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division?).  And who better to co-write and possibly direct the pilot than the man behind The Avengers, Joss Whedon himself.  Whedon will of course be spearheading The Avengers 2, as well as being involved with other features in the Marvel universe.  Hit the jump for much more on the first live-action Marvel TV project to be greenlit. [Updated: We've added quotes from Whedon after the jump.]
