Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen are hard at work with Marvel developing the highly anticipated S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series.
There no information on when we will see the first episode hit, but we do know now that production will start in January or 2013.
Casting directors in Los Angeles and New York are holding auditions for series regulars, recurring roles and guest stars.
Here's what was included in a recent casting call...
S.H.I.E.L.D. will be independent from The Avengers film, and people who haven’t seen the Marvel flicks can jump right in and understand the storylines.
There will generally be new characters and agents who are not superheroes, and even though they are a large organization, they will be underdogs since they still exist in that superhero universe.
Clark Gregg is playing Agent Phil Coulson, the same role he has played in Iron Man I & II, Thor, and The Avengers.
The series will center on his character.
Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Ming-Na Wen has been cast as Agent Melinda May, an ace pilot and weapons expert.
If we're lucky we could see the show air during ABC's 2013 season line-up.
I'm really excited to see where this series goes.
I have no doubt it's going to be a big hit with fans.
