Trailer: ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ - June 7th
Directed by Joss Whedon, starring Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Clark Gregg, Nathan Fillion, Fran Kranz, Reed Diamond, Sean Maher, Tom Lenk and Ashley Johnson.
This is legit. But also like watching an all-too chummy theater troupe put on a show. The mix of DIY low-budget and calculated cinematography is down right charming.

Director Joss Whedon “Endorses” Mitt Romney | BuzzFeed
Agent Grant Ward is deadly, precise and cool under fire. He’s just doesn’t play well with others due to his not-so-great people skills. He’s volatile, but a decent guy with morals whose charm will eventually come through.
Soulful and quiet, Agent Althea Rice (a.k.a. “The Cavalry”) is an ace pilot, weapons expert and soldier who is a bit damaged from her combat experience and has gone beyond the call of duty.
Finally, there’s Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons, also known as “Fitz-Simmons” as the two spend all their time together. Think more along the lines of a brother and sister who always bicker and annoy one another. They came up together and are masters in their fields: Fitz is good with weapons and gadgets while Simmons is into science. Yes, they are huge nerds (and also attractive).
’S.H.I.E.L.D’ is set to be written by Whedon, his bother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. Joss Whedon will direct the pilot if his schedule permits. Production on the pilot is set to start as soon as possible. Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Tancharoen are going to executive produce with Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.
