Word from Deadline Hollywood is that Marvel and ABC have signed off on creating the pilot for S.H.I.E.L.D, the live action TV series. Joss Whedon is supposed to be co-writing it, with his brother Jed (Dollhouse, Doctor Horrible) who will also be directing. Joss always had the best TV series going (Buffy, Firefly, you can name the rest as well as I can), and I can not wait to see his work back on the small screen again. They pretty much started production when they left the room after signing the contracts, so it may just be available fairly soon. Thanks to TOR for the heads up on this one.
