After officially getting picked up by ABC, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has had a blitz of promotional material, including a teaser trailer and a new viral website. In the wake of recent new production photos and the official timeslot for the show, Marvel and ABC have released the first full official trailer for the highly anticipated Joss Whedon series that gives a much better look at what to expect from the story and cast — including the revelation of a very much alive Agent Phil Coulson played by Clark Gregg.
The trailer features Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward as he’s granted access to Level 7, at least the same clearance level as Coulson himself (as revealed in a Marvel One-Shot short). More detail is given on the rest of the cast, including Ming Na as Agent Melinda May, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Iain De Casestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Chloe Bennett as Skye. The trailer also includes the best look yet at J. August Richards’ mystery character (which many assume to be Luke Cage).
“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” premieres Tuesdays this fall on ABC.
