The first teaser trailer for new TV series, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has been previewed by the comic book giants and it looks like it’s going to be just as action-packed as you’re all anticipating.

Now the clip is just 30 seconds or so long, but even in that time frame it fits in plenty of high-tailing, high risk, explosive action, while in the background Agent Coulson – played by Clark Gregg – says "We work the cases that S.H.I.E.L.D. hasn't classified: The strange, the unknown," adding "It's not just spy vs. spy anymore. The whole world is in on the action." The footage provides first glimpses of the stars of the forthcoming series, Ming-Na, Chloe Bennet and Brett Dalton and looks at Hulk as well as Thor’s hammer and Captain America’s shield. This is going to be pure TV porn for Marvel fans we reckon.

It’s pretty apt that Joss Whedon is directing the show – which will air on ABC from Autumn on wards – given that it tails off from The Avengers film, of which he wrote and directed, the film going on to be the third highest-grossing film of all time. ABC only announced over the weekend that they’d bought the show, bringing to an end months of speculation as to whether it was definitely going ahead. Now that it is, we can all begin to get excited. Check out the trailer below.
