    Filming for the pilot starts this January. It would be cool if it went to series by next Fall.

    ABC is basically married to this now. Thinking about a Sunday Night slot.

    ABC has already committed to multiple episode scripts. That's about as good as it gets.

    ABC president Paul Lee says that S.H.I.E.L.D. takes place after The Avengers http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/174417-marvels-shield-will-take-place-after-the-avengers

    Hoop-de-doo. A SHIELD series without Nick Fury. That sounds like fun.

    Considering that Damage Control wasn't (and isn't that well-known outside of the people who read it, I don 't think that there ever will be a TV show based on it. Also, with all of the cameos by superheroes in the show, it would be impossible to pull off due to budget.

    Dugan is dead in this version of the S.H.I.E.L.D. franchise, as is Gabe and everybody else involved with Captain America back in WWII.

    That's good news about Cobie Smulders. I doubt there would ever be room in the Avengers movies (or any of the individual titles) to develop the character. But if she's in the S.H.I.E.L.D. series then Maria Hill can certainly be developed.

    ABC announced the official title and released a plot synopsis today:
    It's looking increasingly likely that ABC will take this one to series.

    Some info regarding "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
    http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/05/02/iron-man-3-marvel-phase-two/5/
    Given how many characters Marvel Studios controls, and the fact that they only want to produce two films a year, could we see some of the as-yet-unused heroes – like Black Panther — turn up here?
    “If that works the way everyone expects it to work I think that would open up another avenue, another outlet for some of those characters,” Feige acknowledes. “Maybe they guest star, I don’t know. I think they’re avoiding the cameo of the week on that show, which is very smart.”
    But, well, there is one other question: Would Robert Downey Jr. ever return to TV for a guest appearance as Iron Man?
    EW asked him straight-up. Downey Jr.’s response: “You know what? There’s no telling. I am open to everything.”

    Some reports are coming out the ABC has picked up "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." for next season. No confirmation yet from the most reliable TV new sites.

    Would be smart for some of the big movie names to cameo every so often. Makes sense given the universe the show takes place...plus it would be a huge ratings boost.
