Clark Gregg's ‘Agent Coulson’ Confirmed To Live Again On Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series

In rather surprising news, it's been officially announced that actor Clark Gregg will somehow reprise the role of Marvel's The Avengers late Agent Coulson, on Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. series!

During today's Marvel Television panel at New York Comic-Con, which is still underway, the Head of Television for Marvel, Jeph Loeb, announced that Marvel's The Avengers late fan-favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent, Phil Coulson, will live again! Backed by Clark Gregg himself, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon appeared in a video where they confirmed that Gregg will surely reprise the role in the planned S.H.I.E.L.D. series with ABC.

“We all love Clark Gregg, there's no doubt about that,” Whedon said. “From before we made 'The Avengers,' we discussed whether there was a way for him to be a part of the Marvel Universe, perhaps a part of a TV show even after his death. … The fact of the matter is, as much as we love him, now that I'm really running Marvel, I like to keep a type of artistic integrity, which means we don't stretch the bounds of reality.” Marvel producer Kevin Feige added that, “There was never going to be a 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' show without Agent Phil Coulson!” “He's headlining the S.H.I.E.L.D. show and always was.” said Whedon.

For the full panel's coverage, head over to Comic Book Resources. This news comes as a surprise, considering all of the outlandish fan-made possibilities that'd allow Coulson's revival, which Clark Gregg has modestly dismissed. Anyhow, Gregg is the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot's first cast member, with details revealed earlier this month for five other characters that'll appear. And it's also unclear how exactly Agent Phil Coulson will be revived, whether it's as a life model decoy or if the series will be a prequel to the events of Marvel's The Avengers. But what do you think?

Last month, Joss Whedon said the series will be adjacent to the Marvel cinematic universe, but is structured so that it deals with agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. who are “the humans in a superhero world and how they deal with that and how it makes them vulnerable.” Whedon penned the pilot with his brother, Jed Whedon & his wife Maurissa Tancharoen. And the trio will also executive produce the pilot with Jeffrey Bell and Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb.




In addition to “Marvel's The Avengers” sequel on May 1, 2015, Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; and “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014.
