ABC President Paul Lee On Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series: "It's Very Joss Whedon"
With cast slowly coming together for Marvel's upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. television show, which Joss Whedon is developing, ABC president Paul Lee talked briefly to TV Line about it, and it sounds we can expect something good and interesting:
If you are wondering what to expect from the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. television series, ABC president briefly talked about it, saying that they are very optimistic about it and that they really like the direction so far...
“It’s very Joss Whedon. We’re optimistic, because Joss is a genius and we love the idea and we love what we’ve seen. But it’s early days, and it’s a long way to go between now and a successful series. But we are very excited about it.”
The show was announced after The Avengers became a global box office hit this summer, making more than $1.5 billion, and becoming the third highest-grossing film ever. Marvel and Joss Whedon closed a deal soon afterwards, where we will see Whedon's influence in upcoming films, as well as this television series (he will direct the pilot episode). Whedon described the characters in the show as “the humans in a superhero world and how they deal with that and how it makes them vulnerable.” If everythhing goes as planned, we should be seeing the first episode sometime in 2013.
