As Marvel prepares to finally show off a little more of Joss Whedon’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. at San Diego Comic-Con in a few weeks, it's decided to drop some new footage to whet our appetites even more.

Focusing on Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), this looks like the first in a potential series of mini-featurettes focusing on each character. We get some insight into Ward via some new scenes, which shows he is the field op expert for the team — but he doesn’t exactly have a lot of tact around the office.

We get to see a pretty hilarious scene between Ward and Coulson (Clark Gregg), which shows a bit more of what the dynamic will be for this super-secret team. Plus, some nice action and a few more hints at the super-heroics hovering around the edges.

Check out the footage below, and keep your fingers crossed that there’s a lot more where it came from:

What do you think? Can Whedon capture his signature magic, along with the box-office buzz of The Avengers?
