KAPOW '12: Joe Quesada Shares His Thoughts On Agent Coulson As Vision Rumors

Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada was in the UK this past weekend at the Kapow! Comic Convention, and talk soon turned to the fate of Agent Coulson. He also discusses the importance of Tony Stark to Marvel and reveals which studio holds the rights to Namor.

There has been a lot of talk recently about Marvel Studios bringing back Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson as the Vision after his tragic death at the hands of Loki in Marvel's The Avengers. It started off as a rumoured extra after-credits scene and soon took on a life of its own, with MTV even compiling a list featuring their thoughts on why they think it's a likely development in the history of the popular character who made his debut in 2008's Iron Man. During the Avengers Vs. X-Men panel on Sunday at the Kapow! Comic Convention in London, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada had this to say when asked about the theory.

"The fans desire for him to become the Vision? I dunno man, it doesn't feel right. That's strictly just fan speak. I don't where that came from. I heard that for the first time yesterday. So, nah...no comment!"

He then went on to talk about making Coulson a part of the comic book universe and how that (and the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series) are a way of him being able to live on. As for the importance of Tony Stark, the panel (which also comprised of C.B Cebulski and Kieron Gillen) discussed how his role in the Marvel Universe has changed massively since both Civil War and the Iron Man movie. They acknowledged that he has become as popular as Spider-Man, and Quesada made it clear just how important the Armoured Avenger is to them.

"Iron Man is it. He's the icon. Everything revolves around Tony Stark for us right now. I think a part of the wonderful draw of The Avengers movie was that people wanted to see Downey go play that character. He's really beloved, so yes, he's very, very important to us."

On Saturday (during the Cup O' Joe panel) Quesada was also quizzed on how it was decided which characters belonged to the other studios when Marvel sold the rights to the likes of Spider-Man and the X-Men. He revealed that lists were made when they were sold, and that a character's first appearance often dictates which "family" they belong to. There are some exceptions he explained - for example, it was decided that the Kingpin was a Daredevil villain despite first appearing in an issue of The Amazing Spider-Man - and emphasised that it's a very complicated process. However, he did confirm that, to the best of his knowledge, the rights to Namor the Sub-Mariner are held by Marvel Studios. Quesada was unable to reveal which movies are on the way, but said that they are meeting soon and that there will be some very exciting announcements for fans, although the their main focus is on developing "tentpole" movies rather than those focusing on obscure characters.
