For a television series based on an agency like S.H.I.E.L.D. it seems fitting that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. be shrouded in secrecy. It is close to 8 months since ABC announced they fast tracked a pilot order for the series and in those long months very little has actually been revealed.
We know the main cast includes Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge. We know the series is created by Joss Whedon along with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. We know the series is set post-The Avengers and we know it is about the the "every day" people in a world of superheros... but that's about it.
We were the first to reveal last month that actor J August Richards (Angel) is involved in the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot but beyond that closely guarded secret we get the distinct impression ABC and the creative geniuses behind S.H.I.E.L.D. are holding back much more.
There is little doubt we will learn more this Tuesday as ABC reveal their Fall schedules at the Upfronts and we may even be fortunate enough to see a clip or two but we want to hear your theories about what secrets you think (or would like) the S.H.I.E.L.D. team to be hiding!
Do you think there may be a secret cameo appearance from one or more of the Avengers, Jeremy Renner perhaps? Do you think there is something huge and unexpected surrounding Agent Coulson's "resurrection"? Or perhaps there will be a non-Avengers surprise guest star like Nathan Fillion or Anna Torv!
Tell us in the comments below what S.H.I.E.L.D. secrets would blow your mind.
