Full "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Teaser

And now, here it is: The first teaser for "Agents of S.H.I.E.LD.," which effectively frames the show as "'The X-Files' But More Funny And With Those Guys From 'The Avengers.'" The mysterious-man sequence is now unblurred, and we can now clearly see that the unnamed superhuman in question is indeed a black man wearing a hoodie. I still say it's probably Luke Cage.

Gotta chuckle at how they manage to work in ultra-short "cameos" for The Avengers without having to show (and thus pay) the actors associated with them - Thor's hammer, Cap's shield, Iron Man flying, Banner in Hulk-form, etc.

I'm excited about this. There's a lot of fun stuff to mess around with in the Marvel universe that may not need or warrant a full movie or full act in a movie - you could probably get a solid syndication-worthy run of shows JUST out of having them chase B and C-list supervillains around every week.
