Though the crew behind ABC’s S.H.I.E.L.D. series has been giving us a lot of sneak peeks along the way, they’ve managed to keep the actual headquarters under wraps—until now. Well, kind of.

Producer Maurissa Tanchareon shared a photo from the set, showing a sign hanging in the S.H.I.E.L.D. offices. It looks like the series will definitely be dealing with alien tech, especially if they have to seperate entire sections to keep them clear.

Though it is just a sign, if does offer some insight into the design style Joss Whedon is going for with the show. It has big, snazzy typography that echoes the look of The Avengers sets, and you have to think S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ is going to look sharp. 

The brief peek we got at a downtown set shows the series will have some rocking production values, and this latest shot just peels back another layer of what Whedon and his cohorts are putting together.

The show stars Clark Gregg (The Avengers), Ming-Na Wen (Stargate Universe), Brett Dalton, Elizabeth Henstridge, Chloe Bennet and Iain De Caestecker. It hasn’t gotten an official pick up from the network, but it seems it’s only a formality. Especially if they’re letting Marvel go to these levels of self-promotion during the pilot shoot.

How do you think the show will turn out? Have you been waiting for Whedon to come back home to TV?
