S.H.I.E.L.D is Joss Whedon's new TV project
Joss Whedon is to create a small screen Avengers spin-off - and now we know a little more. Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D is going to be broadcast on ABC, along with another probably unrelated Hulk series being developed by Guillermo Del Toro.
Whedon will write the pilot for the new series, but it's unknown how much cross over (if any) there will be with the big screen Marvel franchise - we imagine that the fees of any of the cast of the films would make them unrealistic, but maybe we will see the odd cameo.
Joss Whedon's previous TV series include the phenomenon that was Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the too-good-to-be-cancelled-but was Firefly and the so-so Dollhouse. He's got a much better record of hits than misses though so we have a good feeling about this one...
