So, the series will take place prior to the events in The Avengers or in an alternate timeline?

It's comics, dude--no one is really ever dead.

But with him being alive then there's no point in having an Avengers 2 because his death brought them together.

Except if you're Bucky Barnes, Elektra, Jason Todd, Professor X, Cyclops, Cable, J'onn J'onzz, Jean Grey.... Oh snap! Never mind..

As for SHIELD, I'll watch it but without Sam "Bad MoFo" Jackson I hope it's at least watchable (Arrow is the best Comic Book TV show now)...

Why? They could always kill him again...

Pretty damn awesome but I hope they do a little more than just mix it up with various and sundry superpowered people. Doesn't SHIELD usually contend with AIM and HYDRA and other organizations in addition to capes, Asgardians and aliens?

At first I was like :wub: now I'm like :unsure:. I'm conflicted if I should enjoy this or not cause it's a TV series so it'll be fairly low budget and wont have any of Thor, Tony, Banner, and the Cap. And I seriously doubt it'll have much of anything with good ol' Jackson in it. It's just, people have a soft spot for Coleson....and that's where I'm conflicted.

It looks like they're throwing out a lot of money for the pilot episode. But I can't say what the budget will be for the rest of the season. But ya' know, with $300M (US) and near $1B total worldwide from Iron Man 3, you would think Disney has enough money to spend on this show.

Id like to hear their excuse for making him alive. I suppose it was planned for Coulson to get stabbed thru the chest by loki. But whatevs,Marvel.

I'll probably see bits and peices of this as it goes.

Was hoping they would have had Samuel Jackson for at least the pilot. Cameos for RDJ, ScarletJo, etc?

Anyone watching? The show premiere looks like Joss Whedon has a decent budget to work with. The effects are pretty good so far.

The mobile command post cargo area looks like Serenity's cargo hold.

forgot about Firefly... when i saw the hq plane coming out of the hanger, it reminded my of Vega's (Bison's) plane from street fighter II's animated movie.

Maybe I'm just too jaded, but I wasn't all that impressed by the premier; as in, mostly "yawn".

On the plus side, the way they explained agent Coulson's non-room temperature status as a double cross orchestrated by Nick Fury to motivate the Avengers was a passable, if not entirely satisfactory, way of dealing with the seeming inconsistency with the events in the Avengers movie... and the fact they kept offhandedly referring to the events thereof was a nice tie-in. On the minus side, that last sequence with Lola turning into a Back to the Future (or is it Man in Black?) style hover car was waaaaayyy too cheesy and had me groaning and rolling my eyes.

That car was from Captain America I think. At least those hover engines were.

I kept expecting it to be a VTOL.

Shepard Book as the flight surgeon and they alluded to a secret around ("he must never know") Coleson's resurrection other than a Fury lie from avengers.
