Special guest announcements, who the mystery hero is, anything else 😀
Spencer Perry-SHH: Fingers crossed they reveal who J. August Richards is playing in the pilot!
Comment From Guest
whether Coulson was an LMD in the Avengers!
Spencer Perry-SHH: We’re itching to know that as well…
Comment From Brooks
How long until it starts?
Spencer Perry-SHH: Should be in about 15 more minutes!
Spencer Perry-SHH: And Blake Wright has just joined us from Ballroom 20!
Blake Wright: Hello everyone! I’m here in Ballroom 20 where the Bones panel is wrapping up. Stay tuned for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!
Comment From Hythlodeus
will the pilot be screened at the panel?
ComingSoon.net: If they are going to screen the pilot, you won’t hear from Blake for a while
Spencer Perry-SHH: It’s certainly long enough for them to show it, but we have our doubts it will be screened in its entirety
Blake Wright: Bones is done. Won’t be long now!
Spencer Perry-SHH: About time!
Blake Wright: @Aerialgreen – I was in line for a little under two hours, but I’ve been in Ballroom 20 for over two hours!
Spencer Perry-SHH: Panel should be starting in about five minutes or so (hopefully!)
ComingSoon.net: Come on guys and gals, the Walking Dead live blog is beating you in viewers. Invite your friends!
Comment From Kevin
Walking Dead has quantity, we’ve got quality!
Blake Wright: Ok. Here we go!
Blake Wright: Here’s Jeph Loeb!
Blake Wright: Sporting his Coulson Lives shirt…
Blake Wright: He’s thanking folks that made the show possible…
Blake Wright: Show premieres September 24 on ABC… He’s making the crowd chant it.
Blake Wright: Here are the writers…
Blake Wright: Producer/writer Jeff Bell enters…
Blake Wright: Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge are here (Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons)…
Blake Wright: Chloe Bennet (Skye) enters…
Blake Wright: Brett Dalton (Agent Ward) is here…
Blake Wright: Ming-Na Wen (Agent May) joins the panel…

ComingSoon.net: He’s Alive!!
Blake Wright: And he gets a standing ‘O’ from the panel and crowd!
Blake Wright: Joss Whedon in the house!
Spencer Perry-SHH: EW just revealed that Cobie Smulders WILL be in the pilot and is expected to guest star in a few episodes
Blake Wright: Moving straight into Q&A…
Blake Wright: It’s a Make-A-Wish foundation kid. Asking about heroes and villains from the movies showing up in the show.
Blake Wright: Joss says we may see some people… and some newer people. He ends with a ‘probably’, but he won’t say when.
Blake Wright: Next question… Will Deadpool show up?
Blake Wright: Jed says that’s Level 7… but probably not.
EDouglasCS: Deadpool belongs to Fox, ya dummy!
Comment From Jacob B.
What is the story to Coulson’s miraculous recovery?
Blake Wright: They are going to show the pilot!!!
EDouglasCS: I’m guessing they won’t reveal that immediately… or maybe the show is a prequel.
EDouglasCS: The whole pilot? Wowzers? Guess we won’t hear from you for a bit Blake?
Blake Wright: People just went nuts!
ComingSoon.net: Have fun Blake! Stay tuned readers…
Blake Wright: Here is comes!
Blake Wright: Making me shut down. Bye!
Comment From Fanamir
Will any plot elements from the one-shots, such as Jasper Sitwell, the duo from Item 47, or the Zodiac key set to appear in Agent Carter?
EDouglasCS: I have to imagine they will try to include some of that stuff… but I get the impression Agent Carter might be in the past if Dominic Cooper is in that One Shot
EDouglasCS: Like maybe the early days of SHIELD
Comment From Hythlodeus
a running commentary for the pilot? pretty please?
EDouglasCS: They have to shut down electronics whenever they show footage including laptops so Blake may be offline for the next 45 minutes. Hopefully he’ll have some things to say.
EDouglasCS: If it’s a 90 minute pilot then it’s probably 70 minutes of footage although the panel only goes until 3 Pacific so maybe they won’t show the whole pilot.
Comment From Aerialgreen
Will you please consider a non-spoiler review SHH? really, I want SO much to know what happens on the pilot but I’d hate myself if I don’t watch it properly come Sept 24
EDouglasCS: I’ve asked Blake to post a couple thoughts here but post something longer on SHH… not sure what kind of spoilers they’ll show
Spencer Perry-SHH: So anybody know any good jokes?
Spencer Perry-SHH: I’ve got one!
Spencer Perry-SHH: Where does Napoleon keep his armies?
Spencer Perry-SHH: In his sleevies!
Comment From AgentPhil
“Why won’t Marvel say how Coulson survived?” “They want to keep it Loki.”
Spencer Perry-SHH: That’s the spirit!
Comment From Sam H
when does the panel start?
Spencer Perry-SHH: It’s already begun but they’re screening the pilot for those in attendance, and they’re not allowed to blog during the screening.
Comment From Jamie
I don’t want to link off the site, but there is a live blog of the pilot going on right now over at Marvel’s site.
EDouglasCS: Jamie we’re not linking to Marvel’s site. We’ll have our own write-up one it’s done which will be more than just bits of quotes.
Spencer Perry-SHH: and context!
Comment From Roku
Does agents of shield connect to avengers 2 or is it its own thing?
Spencer Perry-SHH: Its set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but as far as direct connections we’ll just have to wait and see.
EDouglasCS: I don’t think it connects to Avengers but you’ll probably see people with powers in it.
EDouglasCS: Not sure about Samuel L Jackson either… he’s pretty firmly in the Cinematic universe
Spencer Perry-SHH: Maybe Level 7 is above Fury’s paygrade
EDouglasCS: What is this Level 7 thing?
Comment From TheDarkNut
is it a 1/2 hour show or an hour long show?
EDouglasCS: I believe an hour long.
EDouglasCS: Marvel’s Agent M was just asked to shut off his computer too
EDouglasCS: Ha ha
EDouglasCS: Oh I see re: Level 7… I thought that refererred to the level of superheroes/villains they’d go after
Spencer Perry-SHH: I can’t imagine it’s going to be much longer, panel is supposed to end at 3
Comment From TV-Watcher
Do you think there’s going to be the same press issue as there was with Dollhouse and ‘things will pickup from episode 6’ – ‘the network want’s standalone and not continuing storylines? For comic fans you’ve got to be worried they might dumb it down to be more accessible for channel hoppers.
EDouglasCS: Probably more standalone I’d guess… that generally works better on television.
Spencer Perry-SHH: I’m sure there will be an arc for the season though
Spencer Perry-SHH: Blake is currently watching the pilot and should be back with us momentarily
EDouglasCS: Silas has just started live blogging Game of Thrones if you need something to do while waiting for Blake’s thoughts on the pilot
EDouglasCS: I’m skipping that because I’ve barely seen Season 3
Comment From Nexus
LOLA is a SHIELD hover car!
Spencer Perry-SHH: She better be!
EDouglasCS: The pilot is over… hopefully Blake will be back with some thoughts before he runs over to Hall H
Blake Wright: I’m back!
Blake Wright: Wow! That was excellent.
EDouglasCS: How was it!?!?
EDouglasCS: Let’s hear some spoilers… do we see any supervillains or heroes we might know?
Comment From Fanamir
So, what’s the scoop on Michael Peterson (J. August Richard’s character)?
Blake Wright: Pitch perfect Joss.
Blake Wright: @Fanamir…. He is a down and out single dad… with a secret.
Blake Wright: @Khan… Coulson’s death was faked. Pure and simple. No smoke and mirrors there… but there was a joke about how long he had to hold his breath.
Spencer Perry-SHH: Well that’s underwhelming….
Blake Wright: @Aerialgreen… Lola is a star.
Blake Wright: @Fanamir… Yes, there is something going on there. Just remember… Tahiti.
ComingSoon.net: Alright guys, Blake’s gotta get going. Let’s wrap this up.
EDouglasCS: So it does take place after Avengers though, not as a prequel?
EDouglasCS: what about any superheroes/villains? Do we see them facing any?
Blake Wright: After Avengers, yes.
Comment From GB
Any Marvel characters show up other than Hill?
Blake Wright: Pilot had no other heroes or villains in the flesh, but some big time name dropping.
Blake Wright: @Nexus… Tahiti is the key.
Blake Wright: I’m outta here! Thanks guys… Tune in Sept. 24!
