Joss Whedon's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been one of the most rumor-generating TV series in recent memory.

Some of that comes from its franchise tie-in nature. It's automatically connected to The Avengers, one of the biggest movies of all time, which also makes it connected to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Add to that all the fanboy and fangirl enthusiasm surrounding the cast, crew and potential storylines, plus a good bit of secrecy on Marvel's part, and you're bound to get a lot of dubious information.

Now, with less than a month to go until the show finally premieres, we're here to set the record straight. We've gathered some of the biggest rumors swirling around the series in the gallery below, and noted whether they appear to be true or not. Sadly, most of the rumors we've heard about the show have been just that — rumors — but the good news is they're all still (mostly) plausible things that could happen if the show takes off. 

Check out the rumors below, and let us know which one you'd most like to see become reality. 

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 8/7 C on ABC.
