Agent Coulson will headline Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D.
Clark Gregg and Joss Whedon appeared at New York Comic-Con this weekend to confirm some fan-pleasing news…
“There was never going to be a S.H.I.E.L.D. show without Agent Phil Coulson.” And with those words from the mouth of Kevin Feige, hordes of Marvel fans at the New York Comic-Con and around the world breathed a sigh of relief. Agent Coulson would be appearing in Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. (the show’s current title), and Clark Gregg was there to prove it.
The news was announced with some trickery. Ostensibly, Gregg was at the Comic-Con to discuss his role on the animated Ultimate Spider-Man but during the panel, a video was shown of Whedon and Marvel head Kevin Feige discussing Agent Coulson’s role in Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. “He’s headlining the show and always was”, confirmed Whedon.
The Avengers viewers will know that Coulson’s appearance begs more questions than it answers at this stage, but however Whedon and co. are going to play it, let’s rest happy that for however long, in whatever circumstances, Coulson is back where he belongs.
