S.H.I.E.L.D. Changes Title, Adds Names

Marvel’s “S.H.I.E.L.D.” has become “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” which will be the official name for the upcoming Joss Whedon-produced TV series.

A brief synopsis says the show will follow Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) as he “puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown.”

One of those names will be a name familiar to Whedon fans – his regular “Angel” cast member J. August Richards who has just scored a secret role. Richards and Coulson star alongside a cast that includes Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Ming-Na Wen and Chloe Bennet.
