Marvel Launches Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Tie-in Products
While we see an avalanche of tie-ins for Marvel movies, there’s been a drought of items leading up to last week’s premiere of Marvel’s television show Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The show not shockingly debuted to solid ratings, with a first place finish in the coveted adult 18-49 demographic. That success is leading to a range of new products including T-shirts, accessories, and posters which are immediately available for purchase at ABC.com, Marvel.com, Hot Topic and other specialty retailers.
The series stars Clark Gregg reprising his role as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons. This dynamic, action-packed one-hour drama brings back Agent Phil Coulson to lead a team of highly skilled agents with one mission: to investigate the new, the strange and the unknown around the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary.
Marking Marvel Television’s first live action television production, the series was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeph Loeb and Jeffrey Bell. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
