Last night ABC premiered the first trailer for what’s sure to be this fall’s most anticipated show – Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Fans of The Avengers film should be pleased to hear that Agent Phil Coulson (played by Clark Gregg) will be back and taking his turn in the spotlight for the ABC drama.

The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. web site is asking enthusiasts to tweet with the hashtag #coulsonlives to unlock another trailer for the show.

Curious what Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be about?

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
