If you're all set to watch the NBA finals tonight, you could get an extra dollop of telly terrificness. A TV spot is being released to debut during the finals for ABC's hot new Avengers spin-off show, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

They've kept things close to The Avengers with reprising his role of Agent Phil Coulson as he puts together an elite group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement group, S.H.I.E.L.D. The agents will look into weird and wonderful events across the globe, keeping ornery folks safe from extraordinary forces.

Coulson's team includes Agent Grant Ward (), an expert in the ancient arts of punching the other guy's lights out and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) hotshot pilot and martial artist (sigh, Asian stereotyping), Agent Leo Fitz(), who's an awesome engineer and Agent Jenna Simmons () who's a pro bio-chemist. Oh yeah - don't forget the mysterious new girl, computer hacker Skye ().

If you absolutely cannot wait to see it, ch-ch-check it out below. It basically condenses the previous trailers into a twenty second summary, with one exception I'll come to in just a sec:


The only new piece of material is the image below, which I for one am intrigued by.

What do we think - could that be the occasional Avenger, Dr Strange? I mean he looks pretty sparkly and magical - I wouldn't be surprised if he was the Sorcerer Supreme himself! But would Dr Strange really try to batter someone to death with what looks like a chair leg...? Sound off in the comments below.

If the video too short for your tastes, check out the full length trailer:
