All Signs Point To ABC Picking Up Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD

Excelsior!

Hold on to your Hulk, it looks like Agents of SHIELD has been picked up! 

Late yesterday, Sitcoms Online posted a tweet saying ABC had indeed decided to pick up Marvel’s new television series from Joss Whedon. They also said the first promo would air during the Once Upon a Time finale on Sunday.

But wait, there’s more!

Then actor Clark Gregg posted a link to a page with a video supposedly depicting a rampaging Hulk. And it was posted on ABC’s official YouTube. It was quickly removed, of course, and continues to be whenever it pops up but could this mean we’ll be getting a Hulk cameo in the pilot?

Finally, The Hollywood Reporter says the official word should come down any minute now so it looks like it’s a sure thing. Hooray for more nerdy television!
