ABC has given fans their first official look at Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The wildly anticipated series - whose pilot was written and directed by Joss Whedon and which airs on September 24th - stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge in the main, investigative roles.

Check out the comic book-based team, assembled for the first time, in this new poster:

Gregg, of course, has generated the most buzz for his role, considering Agent Coulston was killed off in The Avengers.

But the actor said he spoke to Whedon about how and why the character will be revived and hung up "very deeply on board" with the project.

So, just how is Agent Coulston alive and back in charge? That storyline “will be something of a drawn-out explanation,” Whedon told reporters yesterday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Quotes

Ward: You know, last time I suggested we work together you called me a deluded son of a bitch.
Coulson: Things change. I'm offering you a deal. Help me and I'll let you walk away; free and clear. No more looking over your shoulder.
Ward: When something's too good to be true, it's a lie.
Coulson: Not lying. I tried to stick with you before, didn't work so well. So, I'm offering a carrot.
Ward: I'm listening.
Coulson: Get me inside. After that, I put you through the T.A.H.I.T.I. protocol and then you're free to go.
Ward: Wipe my memories? Wow that sounds like a threat, not a carrot.

If Coulson doesn't make it out, you get that closure you've been searching for. Closure's not something I ever put much stock in. What I believe in, is moving forward. Never looking back.
