Maurissa Tancharoen posted a link via twitter to a YouTube video with a first look at Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

We start out with some kind of hooded character with seemingly super-human powers. Will we be seeing minor Marvel characters showing up, ones that probably won’t make it onto the big screen, or will these be all new? Hopefully it’s a mix of both because there are several smaller characters who deserve their moment but at the same time the show will want to keep things fresh.

The rest of the sneak, which is woefully short, is a bunch of normal fighting between normal looking people. So there does look like a lot of action in the pilot but not of the super-human type. This makes sense as a) they have to keep the threat below ‘get the Avengers’ and b) they have to keep the budget below what Disney is willing to pay. But there is a little tech in there so it doesn’t look like it’ll be completely ignored.

No idea on the overall theme or tone (other than action packed) but we do get a nice look at Coulson there at the end with the proclamation that #CoulsonLives. Yes, yes he does… and we couldn’t be happier.

I don’t know if this is the same sneak that will be aired tonight during Once Upon a Time, but I’ll be watching in either case.

Repost of the news from Deadline:

No surprise here — ABC’s first new series order for next season has gone to Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., from The Avengers’ Joss Whedon. The network will air a first-look at the series, officially titled Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., during the season finale of Once Upon A Time on Sunday. This marks the first pilot and first series for Disney-owned Marvel on ABC. Detailed description below:

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 across 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). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series.  “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
