ABC ordered Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot

Since The Avengers made enough money for Disney to fill an Olympic swimming pool with beluga caviar and sail across it in yachts made out of gold and mink fur, it probably shouldn’t be too surprising that they’re already planning on turning it into a TV show. So prepare yourselves for the best news ever, as ABC has ordered a pilot from Joss Whedon for a show called S.H.I.E.L.D., which will focus on Nick Fury’s law enforcement gang. Entertainment Weekly reports …

Joss Whedon might be coming back to TV. ABC has ordered a pilot from Marvel TV executive produced by Whedon titled S.H.I.E.L.D. The project is set in the same universe as Whedon’s Avengers film and follows the law enforcement group headed by Nick Fury. The pilot will be written by Whedon and his brother Jed, along with Maurissa Tancharoen. Deadline reports that Whedon also might direct the pilot too. In the Marvel universe, S.H.I.E.L.D stands for which stands for the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate (or Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division). Production on the pilot is expected to begin ASAP.

Please oh please oh please tell me that they’ll be brining in Samuel L. Jackson to reprise the role, along with Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill. Yeah, I don’t know why, but every time I saw her onscreen, I sort of started clapping like “Look! It’s Robin!” I’m easy like that, I know.
