Believe it or not, I’m a Private Investigator ( ). Before you ask, no I do not own a hat nor do I skulk around in the shadows wearing long jackets!

The reality is that the majority of an investigation is done online.  There is such a wealth of information on wesbsites such as Facebook, Gumtree, Companies House as well as Electoral Rolls, that you very quickly find what your looking for.

Without going into any detail, I was recently conducting an investigation that led to a profile on an internet dating website. After flicking through a few profiles, I noticed one common theme… Marvel films.

I find it fascinating that Marvel is on the brink of creating a new genre in film. As a self-confessed geek, this is truly to ahem… Marvel at… (had to be done) Perhaps the term ‘geek’ no longer applies as how can I identify myself as someone who is not ‘normal’ when ‘normal’ includes one of my main passions in life?

Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate

Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate (S.H.I.E.L.D. for short) has often been the focus of Marvel’s comic-book Universe. Comprised of superheros and special agents, they have been both the villan and hero on countless occasions.

A few months ago, it was announced that a television series based on S.H.I.E.L.D. had been greenlit by ABC, marking the beginning of a new exciting chapter in the Marvel Universe.

In the wake of ABC‘s announcement that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is to air later this year, information has been pouring in, including casting, teaser trailers and rumours.

misses? And they didn’t, so I was really surprised to get that call and I wanted to make sure it didn’t do anything to undermine what we achieved there and when [writer-director Joss Whedon] explained the mystery and how they planned to deal with it, with Agent Coulson being around, I was very sold…  He’s back. He’s thinks he knows how he’s back. We’ll have to see.”

Recent spy reports suggest that Stana Katic’s character Agent Con will play Agent Coulson’s love interest during the first series.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Air Date

On May 14th, 2013 ABC announced that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. this Fall.

ABC went on to comment:

We are taking some big swings with groundbreaking shows this season, and staying close to our roots with smart and sophisticated storytelling. ABC is known for its combination of innovation and stability, and our new

schedule reflects that. We’re bringing back the shows that viewers have embraced and enhancing the lineup with a slate of exciting new series,

Chloe Bennet recently spoke with reporter Samantha Highfill about Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:

“If you love The Avengers, if you love any of Joss Whedon’s work, you’re going to absolutely love the show. It’s about these people living in a super world dealing with being human. You see these superhero movies and you see the superheroes struggle but you don’t see how humans do in a world like that. That’s what will draw people in. It’s so human. And it’s so super and awesome still

I have said it time and time again, but we are beginning to witness something truly spectacular (again… it had to be done!).  As a fan, it’s sometimes hard to comprehend everything that is going on and to see it finally come to fruition is breathtaking.

As a side note, when did you witness so many movie websites (including this Good Movies Bad Movies) building so much hype around a television series?

My fellow geeks, we are the norm and Marvel is no longer a brand, it’s a genre.
