Joss Whedon To Make SHIELD Series For ABC, Movie Unlikely?

It's good news for Whedon and Marvel fans as Disney/ABC announces via Deadline that Joss Whedon will write, produce and possibly direct a SHIELD pilot. The series will see his longtime writing collaborators Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen also involved with the project. No word if the likes of Samuel L. Jackson (cameos?) or the more TV friendly Cobie Smulders will be appearing on the series. This seemingly gives the impression that Marvel Studios won't be pursuing a SHIELD film and will likely be absorbed into the Captain America and Avengers franchises.

It's likely that actors such as Eliza Dushku (Buffy, Dollhouse), Summer Glau (Serenity, The Unit, Terminator) and Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck) along with other loyal Joss Whedon cast members could be involved with the pilot.
