First Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. promo features Hulk? Abomination? Or is it that Hulk TV show?

May 10th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr 1 Comment


So the word is ABC has officially picked up Marvel’s TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is set to premiere this fall. We’ve also got a viral type promo video for the series to show you that features either The Hulk or Abomination wrecking total havoc! It’s safe to assume that the aftermath of this destruction is something that S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to have to take care of. There is a small chance this may be the Hulk TV show that Guillermo del Toro was working on also.

The video has a watermark labeled “RISINGTIDE”, and Disney recently registered domain names pertaining to that, and the only working one so far is WEARETHERISINGTIDE.COM according to StitchKingdom.

The S.H.I.E.L.D. series was co-written by Joss WhedonJed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen. Whedon also directed the first episode. This show is gonna be so cool!

“Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.”

What do you think it is?
