Marvel Finds Part of San Diego That Isn’t Plastered with Advertising; Brands It with AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

     July 9, 2013


Just about anywhere you look during Comic-Con, you’ll see advertising for some movie or TV series.  You can even see it on the flight in if a studio has taken over the windows for the Hilton Bayfront.  However, one part of the city that has remarkably gone untouched is the trolley system…until now.  Marvel has taken the red trolley, painted it black, and slapped it with the logo for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  The only thing that’s missing is Agent Coulson’s stern glare on the front of the train like a disapproving Thomas the Tank Engine.

Hit the jump to check out the trolley.  Marvel’s Agents of Shield will have its Comic-Con panel in Ballroom 20 on Friday, July 19th.  The series will be on Tuesdays this fall on ABC.

Here’s the official synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series.  “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
