Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on the mind of every fan of the film franchise. Almost everything about the show has been kept under wraps until just recently. At San Diego Comic-Con director Joss Whedon and company shocked their panel attendees when they screened the entire pilot. At the Television Critics Association Press Tour the entire pilot was screened once again, many questions were also asked regarding the show. Closer towards the end of the Critic's panel Clark Gregg announced that they were sharing pieces of a brand new poster that will be unveiled if enough people re-tweeted the first piece featuring the actor.

After many tweets and teases, the first poster was finally unveiled to the general public. A short question and answer session featuring the cast and crew of the show shed more light on the highly anticipated television series. Regarding if Samuel L. Jackson would ever reprise his role as Nick Fury in the show director Joss Whedon said the following 

"love to have him [Sam Jackson]," on the show. He's a movie star and a workaholic, so whether or not he makes time for us I can't say yet. I hope so." 

On the topic of whether other characters from the films such as Thor's Chris Hemsworth would return, Whedon also had more to say.

"I'm not going to go begging, and I'm not going to use up favors I need for The Avengers 2. As I say, the DNA of the show is the show. Those guys would be a delightful bonus, but we're not building our arcs around them."

The director was then asked if the stars would overpower the smaller characters on the show. 

"The good thing about the universe is that they're superstars in that universe. So if they showed up, if they overbalanced it slightly, that would actually make sense. That's how people would react to them in the universe of the show, so I don't think that's problem. I do think it's a problem if you have them too regularly and people are just wondering, 'When do I get to see a movie star again?' Instead of concentrating on these guys."

It is so refreshing to finally have some information on the new show. Enjoy Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. when it hits network television on September 24th at ABC.
