Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. officially picked up by ABC [*Updated with Promo Video]

It's official, ABC has announced that it has ordered a full season of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.The Hollywood Reporter says that ABC will begin it's marketing push with the show this Sunday where a special sneak peak at the series will air before the season finale of "Once Upon a Time."

When we first heard that the series was being produced we found out that Clark Gregg would be reprising his role as Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films, although we're not sure yet how they will be explaining his return (my bet is that either the Coulson that died in the Avengers movie was a S.H.I.E.L.D. "Life Model Decoy" duplicate or the one in the TV series will be a LMD.)

The show will follow Agent Coulson as he assembles a small group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D.  His select team will consist of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) engineer, Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) bio-chemist and new recruit/computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).   Joss Whedon (Marvel’s The Avengers, ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen are the Executive Producers.  This will be Marvel’s first TV series.  Stay tuned to Idol Threat for any future developments.
