Marvel has what amounts to an unspoiled track record when it comes to their films. So when it came time to expand their cinematic universe to include the realm of television, it made sense that they'd turn to the man who helmed their biggest box office success to date: Joss Whedon. With such cult shows as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly under his belt, Whedon was the perfect choice to bring the Marvel brand to the small screen. But with DC already dominating primetime with Arrow, Marvel had some catching up to do. Luckily, the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are more than up to the task.
