VIDEO: New 3 Minute Trailer For Marvel's Upcoming Television Series - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Hollywood Gone Geek, @HwoodGoneGeek, HGG, Entertainment, Movie News, Superhero, Agents of Shield, Trailer, Video, Coulsen Lives, Marvel Universe, Marvel Comics, Clark Gregg, Phil Coulson, S.H.I.E.L.D., Grant Ward, Brett Dalton), Melinda May, Ming-Na Wen, Leo Fitz, Iain De Caestecker), Agent Jemma Simmons, Elizabeth Henstridge, Skye, Chloe Bennet
This new three minute trailer for the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is actually pretty happening. I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't on board with this idea. I didn't like the little mini-movie Item 47 and this initially felt derivative of the Marvel Cinematic U, because you know you're not going to see any of the stars. So, I think that's why I wasn't buying into it. But having watched this trailer, I'm a little more receptive. I'm not sold on it just yet, but we'll see.

In this trailer, while we do see some of the same clips we've seen before, we do get a little more. Check it out:

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is coming to the ABC network this September.

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).

I just wrote about the upcoming Marvel animated series Avengers Assemble that is coming to Disney XD this summer and now I have more cool news about the show. Here are 3 promo clips promoting the series. We see everyone in action - Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widwow, Falcon and Hawkeye. Villian wise - I saw Modok and what looked like the Red Skull in Iron Man's armor.

All are very short and don't give too much away, however one line did stand out - "We had our reasons for disbanding the Avengers..." Makes me wonder if this is a reference to Avengers: The Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the previous animated series, or the Avengers movie.

Check out the clips:

As noted, Disney XD is giving viewers a sneak hour long preview next week, May 26th with the series launched in July.
