Kept waiting for someone else to post this here.  Apparently he's not only doing Avengers 2, but he's doing an Avengers or SHIELD related spinoff for TV.

I must admit I'm quite disappointed in this, but I'm no big fan of superheroes anyway. I'd rather see Joss Whedon do another series based on his own properties.

Give the man a chance to play in the big leagues for a little while.  We've all known what a great writer and director he is, but the world at large hasn't.  I don't begrudge him his moment in the spotlight.  Besides, maybe he'll be able to get his side projects financed that much more quickly now that he's playing on the A team.

I doubt he has much hands on with any TV series. The far bigger money machine is the next round of "Avenger movies" coming which I'm sure is his #1 priority.

I've been thinking this for a while, but I think people might be expecting the wrong thing from this show.

I don't think we're going to see superheroes much, if at all.  I'm predicting that the focus of the show is going to be personnel.  Probably a lot of desk grunt moments interspersed with some human agents in the field.  And then, every once in a while, they'll go ask The Vision a question or something.

EDIT: And I just watched the video (thumbsup), and I think that's kind of like what we'll be seeing, actually.

I think you're underestimating Joss's ability to film action sequences.  I'm sure there will be plenty of droll scenes of office life with the requisite drama and comedy, but I believe we'll also have a big bad each season that will require some fun fights and other bouts of secret agent insanity.

Oh, I don't mean to imply that the whole show will be like the opening sequence of Cabin in the Woods.

I think it'll be like most Whedon shows.  Lots of humorous character-building downtime followed by nice bouts of action.

I'm just saying I don't think a lot of that is going to involve superheroes.  I'm betting it'll be more about the unsung heroes in the background.

Some of my guess has to do with how Joss has worked in the past.  A lot of it has to do with TV budgets. 

I'm sure there will be guest bits from superheroes, since the networks are going to want to sell the show, but my hunch is that they won't be the focus.

It doesn't say anything about being a flashback, and it does state that the actor in question may appear in the next Thor and Iron Man films.

True but it doesn't not say anything about it not being a flashback, either. Not not.

Didn't Joss say somewhere that he wouldn't lessen the impact of that scene?

If it's not a flash back, then

Spoiler for Hiden:
The beginning of the show would have to have some exchange like:
"I thought you were dead."
"No, they only wanted it to seem that way so that I could work on this secret project.  Let me get you up to speed."

Lame.  

It would come off as they brought back the character because they knew he'd be popular on the show, but it would be a cop out.  Whereas, if it takes place in the past, it's logical that the character would be there.  It's also more poignant that way.  Plus it's an easy explanation for why we never see Iron Man or Thor or Black Widow or Captain America or the Hulk or Hawkeye or any other actor that would be too expensive for a TV show.  Except Nick Fury.  I don't know how they're going to get around that, exactly.  I imagine he'll make a (very expensive) appearance in the pilot and send them on their way.

"Character X will not appear in some kind of flashback/Obi-Wan role". I realize that comic book properties have been heretofore averse in resurrecting dead characters, but it seems like they're making an exception slywink.

Of course, that doesn't mean the show won't take place in the past, but I'm sure that's not the case (as does the fact that they said the show is concurrent).

I know characters get resurrected all the time in comic books, but it feels cheap to me.

Still, happy to have him back.  Happy to have another Whedon show on the air, too.  So I'm sure I'll be watching anyway.

So a did a quick search and found some stuff I'm not sure if it was mentioned already in this thread, more speculation, but backed up with some findings:

Spoiler for Hiden:
So remember in The Avengers where Coulson was talking about dating a cellist in Portland, or some city that I forget?

Well, in the Marvel universe, there's the Scarlet Witch character who is a cellist. She's also the main squeeze for Vision, the character a bunch of people rumored that Coulson was going to become. Of course, that's probably where the rumors started from, but cool nonetheless.

Also, the Item 47 short is pretty cool, and actually works as a test bed episode for the TV show. I know I'm looking forward to this show.

There's just something I liked about how they try to portray SHIELD agents in the films and shorts so far, they're all competent, well trained and equipped, but get a little wacky with all the crazy stuff they have to deal with.

    Joss Whedon shows us not all heroes are super with "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

    Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, Marvel's The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. 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. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).

    Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.

    Executive Produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen ("Dollhouse," "Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog"), Jeffrey Bell ("Angel," "Alias") and Jeph Loeb ("Smallville," "Lost," "Heroes") comes Marvel’s first live-action TV series, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

At least we can make a difference until a supervillain shows up and then we have to hide in the helicarrier and call Iron Man  Tongue
