Throughout his TV career, Joss Whedon has successfully used the "monster of the week" and "big bad" villain tropes in his shows, but it was previously unclear if "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." will employ the same tactics.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen were asked about the show's villains specifically, and whether it would be one or the other type for the show's inaugural season.

"There are gods and aliens," Whedon said. "So we have a lot to play with. There's a spy aspect of the show and SHIELD is some of the most sci-fi in the Marvel universe because it's about gadgets. So we have a lot of different things to play with. It will be a mixture of both. We will be focusing on having every story having a beginning, middle and end, but some of it will be mythology and some of it will standalone. And our character runs will continue through all of that."

"Marvel is a very vast and diverse universe," added Tancharoen.

"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." will premiere on ABC tonight, Tuesday, September 24, at 8 p.m.
