My new favorite series…S.H.I.E.L.D.!!!

Huge news that just came out way…ABC is going to make a S.H.I.E.L.D. show, and non other than The Avengers headliner Joss Wheadon is going to write, and possibly direct the pilot!

Deadline reported that ABC has given the go-ahead to begin work on Whedon’s show about S.H.I.E.L.D., the top secret organization that flies around in an invisible aircraft carrier. Many people had suspected this would happen after copious marketing behind the S.H.I.E.L.D.-centric short Item 47. And deadline says the series will continue it’s growing focus on the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Whedon’s brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen will be joining Whedon on this project, plus the big guy might direct the pilot. No word on when we’ll see the pilot, or who has been cast, or even who the main characters will be, since Samuel L. Jackson is unlikely to star in a weekly TV series.

But my speculation, and this is more hope than speculation, is that Maria Hill, (Colby Smuthers) will be the lead, I mean come on, she took over for awhile in the books, her other TV series is coming to an end, and who better than her to take the lead in a show like this!
