1:57
Blake Wright: Moving straight into Q&A...

1:58
Blake Wright: It's a Make-A-Wish foundation kid. Asking about heroes and villains from the movies showing up in the show.

1:59
Blake Wright: Joss says we may see some people... and some newer people. He ends with a 'probably', but he won't say when.

1:59
Blake Wright: Next question... Will Deadpool show up?

1:59

1:59

2:00
Comment From Jacob B.
What is the story to Coulson's miraculous recovery?

2:00
Blake Wright: They are going to show the pilot!!!

2:00
EDouglasCS: I'm guessing they won't reveal that immediately... or maybe the show is a prequel.

2:00
EDouglasCS: The whole pilot? Wowzers? Guess we won't hear from you for a bit Blake? :)

2:00
Blake Wright: People just went nuts!

2:01
ComingSoon.net: Have fun Blake! Stay tuned readers...

2:01
Blake Wright: Here is comes!

2:01
Blake Wright: Making me shut down. Bye!

2:01
Comment From Fanamir
Will any plot elements from the one-shots, such as Jasper Sitwell, the duo from Item 47, or the Zodiac key set to appear in Agent Carter?

2:02
EDouglasCS: I have to imagine they will try to include some of that stuff... but I get the impression Agent Carter might be in the past if Dominic Cooper is in that One Shot

2:02
EDouglasCS: Like maybe the early days of SHIELD

2:02
Comment From Hythlodeus
a running commentary for the pilot? pretty please?

2:03
EDouglasCS: They have to shut down electronics whenever they show footage including laptops so Blake may be offline for the next 45 minutes. Hopefully he'll have some things to say.

2:07
EDouglasCS: If it's a 90 minute pilot then it's probably 70 minutes of footage although the panel only goes until 3 Pacific so maybe they won't show the whole pilot.

2:09
Comment From Aerialgreen
Will you please consider a non-spoiler review SHH? really, I want SO much to know what happens on the pilot but I'd hate myself if I don't watch it properly come Sept 24

2:09
EDouglasCS: I've asked Blake to post a couple thoughts here but post something longer on SHH... not sure what kind of spoilers they'll show

2:14
Spencer Perry-SHH: So anybody know any good jokes?

2:15
EDouglasCS: Nope

2:15
Spencer Perry-SHH: I've got one!

2:15
Spencer Perry-SHH: Where does Napoleon keep his armies?

2:15
Spencer Perry-SHH: In his sleevies!

2:16
Comment From AgentPhil
"Why won't Marvel say how Coulson survived?" "They want to keep it Loki."

2:16
Spencer Perry-SHH: That's the spirit!

2:17
Comment From Sam H
when does the panel start?

2:17
Spencer Perry-SHH: It's already begun but they're screening the pilot for those in attendance, and they're not allowed to blog during the screening.

2:18
Comment From Jamie
I don't want to link off the site, but there is a live blog of the pilot going on right now over at Marvel's site.

2:19
EDouglasCS: Jamie we're not linking to Marvel's site. We'll have our own write-up one it's done which will be more than just bits of quotes.

2:19
Spencer Perry-SHH: and context!

2:38
Comment From Roku
Does agents of shield connect to avengers 2 or is it its own thing?

2:38
Spencer Perry-SHH: Its set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but as far as direct connections we'll just have to wait and see.

2:38
EDouglasCS: I don't think it connects to Avengers but you'll probably see people with powers in it.

2:39
EDouglasCS: Not sure about Samuel L Jackson either... he's pretty firmly in the Cinematic universe

2:39
Spencer Perry-SHH: Maybe Level 7 is above Fury's paygrade

2:40
EDouglasCS: What is this Level 7 thing?

2:40
Comment From TheDarkNut
is it a 1/2 hour show or an hour long show?

2:40
EDouglasCS: I believe an hour long.

2:42
EDouglasCS: Marvel's Agent M was just asked to shut off his computer too

2:42
EDouglasCS: Ha ha

2:42
EDouglasCS: Oh I see re: Level 7... I thought that refererred to the level of superheroes/villains they'd go after

2:42
Spencer Perry-SHH: I can't imagine it's going to be much longer, panel is supposed to end at 3

2:42
Comment From TV-Watcher
Do you think there's going to be the same press issue as there was with Dollhouse and 'things will pickup from episode 6' - 'the network want's standalone and not continuing storylines? For comic fans you've got to be worried they might dumb it down to be more accessible for channel hoppers.

2:43
EDouglasCS: Probably more standalone I'd guess... that generally works better on television.

2:43
Spencer Perry-SHH: I'm sure there will be an arc for the season though

2:44
Spencer Perry-SHH: Blake is currently watching the pilot and should be back with us momentarily

2:44
EDouglasCS: Silas has just started live blogging Game of Thrones if you need something to do while waiting for Blake's thoughts on the pilot

2:44
EDouglasCS: http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=106651

2:45
EDouglasCS: I'm skipping that because I've barely seen Season 3

2:45
Comment From Nexus
LOLA is a SHIELD hover car!

2:45
Spencer Perry-SHH: She better be!

2:46
EDouglasCS: The pilot is over... hopefully Blake will be back with some thoughts before he runs over to Hall H

2:46
EDouglasCS: Blake?

2:48
Blake Wright: I'm back!

2:49
Blake Wright: Wow! That was excellent.

2:49
EDouglasCS: How was it!?!?

2:49
EDouglasCS: Let's hear some spoilers... do we see any supervillains or heroes we might know? :)

2:49
Comment From Fanamir
So, what's the scoop on Michael Peterson (J. August Richard's character)?

2:49
Blake Wright: Pitch perfect Joss.

2:50
Blake Wright: @Fanamir.... He is a down and out single dad... with a secret.

2:52
Blake Wright: @Khan... Coulson's death was faked. Pure and simple. No smoke and mirrors there... but there was a joke about how long he had to hold his breath.

2:52
Spencer Perry-SHH: Well that's underwhelming....

2:53
Blake Wright: @Aerialgreen... Lola is a star.

2:53
Blake Wright: @Fanamir... Yes, there is something going on there. Just remember... Tahiti.

2:54
ComingSoon.net: Alright guys, Blake's gotta get going. Let's wrap this up.

2:54
EDouglasCS: So it does take place after Avengers though, not as a prequel?

2:54
EDouglasCS: what about any superheroes/villains? Do we see them facing any?

2:54
Blake Wright: After Avengers, yes.

2:54
Comment From GB
Any Marvel characters show up other than Hill?

2:55
Blake Wright: Pilot had no other heroes or villains in the flesh, but some big time name dropping.

2:55
Blake Wright: @Nexus... Tahiti is the key.

2:56
Blake Wright: I'm outta here! Thanks guys... Tune in Sept. 24!
