Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: Cast Photo and "Coulson Lives" Teaser

After months of production teases and photos, Marvel has finally unveiled the curtain and details to their upcoming new live action TV Series that spins directly off their Marvel Cinematic Universe - Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD!

The big highlight is, of course, the return of Clark Gregg in his signature role of Agent Phil Coulson, who was last seen in "The Avengers" and seemingly met a tragic demise that inspired Earth's Mightiest Heroes to rally up and take down Loki once and for all. Apparently that isn't the case, and Coulson's back to bring together a new team of agents for the "Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division". How he came back is the mystery we all want to know... As well as seeing the new TV series that's been picked up by ABC!

Via Bleeding Cool, here's the full press release for the series:

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. 

Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). 

From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.

Also a trailer is sure to follow up anytime soon. In the meantime, the official Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Twitter account has released a new Vine teaser that's aptly hastagged with "Coulson Lives".

No exact release date has been given yet for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, but expect it sometime before the year ends... Hopefully!
