Hey, you — out there watching TV. Did you know Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a spinoff from The Avengers? Well, this should clear it up.
With the series’ Sept. 24 premiere date getting closer and closer, Marvel has rolled out a new promo trailer with a voiceover intro from Avengers co-star Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) talking about how the series picks up after the battle of New York.
It’s a smart bit of cross-promotion (especially since Smulders cameos in the pilot) and should help catch the eye of your average TV fan, who might not realize exactly how the ABC series fits into the Marvel continuity they already know and love.
The teaser also shows off some snippets of new action footage, with explosions and gunplay galore. They’re definitely playing up the movie-like budget to connect the two worlds, and we can’t wait to see Coulson’s gang in action for ourselves.
Check out the new teaser above and let us know what you think.
