MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Confirmed for Comic-Con; Joss Whedon to Appear

     June 20, 2013


While it was a bit of a no-brainer, ABC has confirmed that the anticipated new series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will indeed have a panel at Comic-Con next month.  Executive producer/writer/director Joss Whedon will appear alongside Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb on the panel, which is also a strong indicator that Whedon will make an appearance during Marvel’s Hall H panel as well.  While the studio’s big movie panel will likely focus on Thor 2 and Captain America 2, I wouldn’t be surprised if the full character lineup for The Avengers 2 is revealed during the presentation.  Either way, Collider will be at Comic-Con in full force to bring you extensive coverage from all the panels.  Hit the jump for more, including the full press release.
