ABC finally released a full trailer for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. And the season finale of Castle delivered some serious situations that included decisions, choices and victims the didn’t look quite like they seemed.
S.H.I.E.L.D. Trailer from ABC (Is that Cobie Smulders we hear in the beginning?)
First up is the S.H.I.E.L.D. full trailer. Much like the 30-second clip that ABC teased with, this almost 3-minute trailer fills in more details and confirms what the 30-second clip hinted at… that this show should rock.
The show is created by Joss Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, & Jed Whedon. They’ve also contributed to the episode scripts. And if Joss has much to say about what goes into the stories, then his style should shine through.
If you have been one of the small core fans of Joss, you know he can crank out good stories with group ensembles. But of course, now everyone knows that after The Avengers.
The series will star Clark Gregg, reprising his role of Phil Coulson. Yes, Coulson lives!
Other cast members include
Ming-Na Wen (Eureka, SGU) as Melinda May
Brett Dalton as Grant Ward
Chloe Bennet (Nashville) as Skye
Iain De Caestecker (The Fades) as Leo Fitz
Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons
Shannon Lucio as Debbie
J. August Richards playing the meta-human character. Some might recognize Richards from Raising the Bar, while Whedon fans will recall his role of Gunn in Angel.
& Arlene Santana (Grey’s Anatomy).
Here’s the official synopsis:
Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films, as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange and the unknown around the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage; Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), expert pilot and martial artist; Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), brilliant engineer; and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
Does anyone think the “68” in the license plate is referencing the year that the comic title, Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD first came to print?

Castle SPOILERS ensue for the time-shifted viewer:
In the season finale of Castle, the case of the week involved the murder of a woman who her neighbors thought, was a prostitute, but that was only because of a CD she’d play at night while she used her laptop to infiltrate a corporate website.
But her tinkering seemingly got her murdered.
But alas, that wasn’t the real focus of this episode.
Beckett has gone on the interview with the AG in Washington DC , without telling Castle, and she has to decide if she wants this federal job. It’s a huge career move for her and it gives her everything she’s ever wanted from her career.
But Castle found out she interviewed and gets ticked.
But then the inevitable took place. Though this could be a shark jump, Castle proposed to Beckett, and left both decisions in her hands. (Job and marriage.)
As of the girl doesn’t have enough issues to deal with.
