Marvel resurrects Agent Coulson for S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series — and why not?

Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson (Marvel/Disney)Comic Book Resources today broke the news Marvel fans have been dying to hear: At New York Comic Con, Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel’s television initiatives, and Joss Whedon, who directed The Avengers for the big screen and will produce and direct the pilot for a TV spinoff centered around S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, announced that Clark Gregg was the first actor to be cast in the show.

We’re still reeling from the fact that there will be a S.H.I.E.L.D. series, and now Agent Phil Coulson himself, the unflappable everyman who had been the glue that held the Marvel cinematic universe together until his demise at the hands of Loki in The Avengers, is going to be leading the charge. Somehow. We don’t care how.

Coulson lives!

Head over to Comic Book Resources for the post-op intel on how it all went down.

  • In the first episode, Coulson should fight his way back from Hel, perhaps striking a deal with Hella, who has been known to do that kind of thing before. The explanation could be as simple as, if a Norse God kills you, your death is on Norse-mythological terms!
