AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Reportedly Had a Script Issue, So Joss Whedon Was Called In



While Marvel fans are eagerly anticipating the debut of Agents of SHIELD on September 24, at 8.p.m. on ABC, the show has been moving forward shooting new episodes to round out its first season. During the filming process the production is usually a bunch of episodes ahead of the episode that's about to air on television.

Also during this process the showrunners—Joss Whedon's brother Jed and sister-in-law Maurissa Tancharoen—are at the helm of the new series. But the writing is reportedly not up to par. According to Defamer, who is a part of Gawker's online network, Joss needed to be called in to fix a writing issue. Defamer wrote:

"A source close to the show tells us that the latest scripts that have come in have been so bad, Whedon had to pull off a page one rewrite just an hour before the table read. Given that Whedon is supposed to be transitioning full show runner responsibilities to his brother Jed Whedon and sister-in-law Maurissa Tancharoen so that he can focus on his 83 other film projects, this ain't a good sign."

Having Joss come off his writing duties of finishing up the script for the much anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron is a big deal. Fans should be concerned only if Joss keeps getting phone calls to come in and do some more writing for Agents of SHIELD. This is most likely a one-time thing and it could've happened because Joss needed to come in and help better integrate the show to co-exist with something new that will happen in an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film.

As of right now The Daily SuperHero will label this as a one-time hiccup. Hopefully...
