ABC have released a trailer for Agents of SHIELD, the TV spin-off from The Avengers and the other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. Joss Whedon is producing the new show and has directed the pilot. The show is expected to start airing in September.

The show picks up shortly after the events of The Avengers and will explain how Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) survived the apparently fatal injuries he sustained in that movie. Gregg - who appeared as Coulson in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers - will headline the show, which will also star Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Chloe Bennett as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons. Former Whedon regular J. August Richards (who played Gunn on Angel) will guest star in the pilot episode.

Whedon is expected to supervise the first season before taking a back seat whilst he concentrates on The Avengers 2, which is expected to hit cinemas in the summer of 2015.
