ABC orders Joss Whedon's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot

The man who brought us a mega Marvel success this summer with "The Avengers" is aiming to do the same on the small screen.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, ABC has placed a pilot order for "S.H.I.E.L.D.," which will be co-written by "Avengers" writer/director Joss Whedon and possibly also directed by him, if he has the time for it. (As it stands, Whedon already has an "Avengers" sequel to consider.)

Inspired by the comic created by Jack Kirby, S.H.I.E.L.D. - the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate - is a secret law enforcement agency led by Nick Fury, who recruits aid from Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the Hulk.

The live-action series would be a return to TV for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"  and "Firefly" creator Whedon, who has a three-year exclusive deal in place with Walt Disney.
