ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got off to a terrific start with its September 24th premiere. It was viewed by 12.12 million people and was the biggest network drama debut in four years. Actor Clark Gregg plays Agent Phil Coulson. He was not killed by Loki in the events that happened in the Avengers film, although he was dead for eight seconds. The pilot can be viewed on ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. website.
Gregg talked with Good Morning America about the highly entertaining new TV series. He pulled up in the same red car his character drives in the show. This interview took place just before the pilot premiered on ABC, which was amazing.
Gregg says the series is set in the world after the events of Avengers. People are aware now of aliens and superheroes and some people now covet powers of their own. Gregg says he thinks his character is like the stage manager who has to help keep all the superheroes in line. He says, "There is something quietly heroic about him." Take a look:

Ben Affleck to Play Batman in 2015 Movie
Ben Affleck has been announced as the next Batman. He will star alongside Henry Cavill as Superman in the July 17, 2015 movie directed by Zack Snyder. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will also star in the film. They will reprise their roles from Man of Steel. David S. Goyer is writing the screenplay.
Greg Silverman, president of Warner Bros. Pictures., said in a statement, "We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics' most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some. His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character."
Snyder says, "Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry's Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can't wait to work with him."
Ben Affleck played the Marvel comics superhero Matt Murdock / Daredevil in the 2003 film, Daredevil. Affleck also played George Reeves, an actor who played Superman, in the 2006 film, Hollywoodland.
