Coulson lives! And it’s not just fanboyism! Since we were attending the Marvel TV panel expecting to learn about the company’s upcoming animation lineup, imagine our surprise to find an appearance by Agent Phil Coulson himself, Clarg Gregg! And what magnanimous announcement should Joss Whedon himself deliver via video? Coulson indeed lives, and will headline ABC’s 'SHIELD' TV series!
Coulson lives! The two words Marvels 'The Avengers' fans have been longing to hear ever since the movie's credits rolled, and Marvel began announcing all the various films and projects that would comprise "Phase 2" of its superhero empire. But with ABC's recent announcement of a 'S.H.I.E.L.D' TV series under Joss Whedon set for the future, is there any real chance of seeing Clark Gregg return to his beloved role as Agent Phil Coulson?
If you haven't seen 'The Avengers' yet, click away from the story right now. Seriously. Spoilers are going to begin once this sentence has concluded and there will be no further warnings. As over one billions dollars worth of people know, SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson was killed by the evil Loki during the events of 'The Avengers' and gave the titular team the needed motivation to come together and save the day. However, death is easily overturned in the comic book world, so why not here? MTV got Clark Gregg, Coulson himself, to set the record straight.
