Yesterday we got a 30 second teaser for TV's ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." series and now we've been treated to an extended look at the superhero show. And the first thing that jumped out at me, other than the fact that there's a live-action TV series that exists in-continuity with a massively successful movie series based on a bunch of comics, is how Joss Whedony this sucker is going to be. Sure, Whedon is the man behind both the series and "Marvel's The Avengers" (which makes him the creative bus driver of the whole shebang). But for fans of Joss and his cult classics like "Buffy," "Angel," the original draft of "Alien Ressurection," "Firefly," and a few lines in "Speed," there's going to be a whole lot of those patented clever, cute, quick, and witty Whedonisms to get all shiny about.

Here are 8 bits and bites that I found.

By now, you've probably heard the news that ABC has ordered a full season of "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.," the show set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and masterminded by Joss Whedon. But what you might not be familiar with, if you're not a hardcore comic reader, is the background of this mysterious S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. We break it down for you, in MTV Geek's History of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Rage _marvel

By Matt Wilson

The rumors that former "Angel" co-star J. August Richards would be playing Luke Cage in the new "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." TV series seemed to be confirmed by the teaser trailer ABC and Marvel released over the weekend. In it, a young, black man performs some pretty incredible feats of strength and agility.

But Luke Cage obviously isn't the only black, super-powered hero in the Marvel Universe, and it wasn't long before former UGO editor Chris Radtke sussed out who the character really is. According to the two-second Marvel bumper at the start of the trailer, it's Elvin Daryl Haliday, a.k.a. Rage, best known for his run as a New Warrior in the early 1990s, later as one of the trainers in the "Avengers: The Initiative" series.

So what makes Rage tick? Here are the basics:

In our newest, exclusive look behind the scenes of Marvel NOW!, writer Sam Humphries (and his fantastic hair) takes us on a tour of the various real-life Los Angeles locations from "Uncanny X-Force."

Although it was announced last year, there hasn't been a lot of news out of Walt Disney Animation Studios' "Big Hero 6," the adaptation of the pair of Marvel miniseries from Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau.

And while the feature film won't be out until 2014, we've got some concept art and a synopsis describing the journey of the five heroes recruited by a Japanese teen (here it seems the Disney script has created a Japan/U.S. hybrid state) to save their city of San Fransokyo from the criminal element.
