Joss Whedon Dishes on S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series

In a series of tweets made late last night, Variety writer Cynthia Littleton brought fans their first hints at what ABC's forthcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV pilot might be like, straight from the mouth of Joss Whedon during a Q&A session in promotion of Ira Glass and Mike Birbiglia's Sleepwalk With Me.

In a series of tweets reporting from the Q&A, Littleton said:

The filmmaker also reassure fans that the long-awaited sequel to his Internet sensation Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog was still in the cards, and wouldn't be affected by his exclusivity deal with Marvel. He said he hopes to get the follow-up into production very soon.
