Joss Whedon - Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.. A fantastic take on the classic Jim Steranko cover art.

Shiny new iPad wallpaper :)
Is the new Avengers TV show going to be called S.H.I.E.L.D.? Because that would be confusing since there's already a show called The Shield.
Well, The Shield left the airwaves many many years ago so I don't think there would be much confusion.

Though I wouldn't be surprised if they end up using a different name.
Yes, it is called S.H.I.E.L.D. While Avengers universe, it isn't an Avengers spin off.
I'm betting the series will have a subtitle.
ABC love the one-word titles.
The spin off would be S.W.O.R.D.
I love that this is an easy title to copyright/trademark (because of the initials), and it seems to me to be a shout out to 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E." (I'm betting it would draw in a lot of older viewers who will think of that show when they seen this one on the schedule). I really think this show has a good chance to attract viewers (particularly everyone who saw 'Avengers') and be an entertaining successful show (fingers crossed).
Darkness I hate when my S.W.O.R.D. goes spinning off.

As to that cover...um...I...ah....well...um...huh.
never knew Mr Whedon had such ripped abs
Not to mention the delicate ankles.
SHIELD and UNCLE were both coat-tailing the James Bond craze, of course, and are contemporary with each other, mid-1960's.

Those un-exposed will be well-served by finding the Steranko/SHIELD stuff from that era...ground-breaking, and I know that Joss and team will bring the whiz-bang to evoke that greatness!

Just keepin' the historical peace, heh.
