New York Comic Con 2012: Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson Will Return In S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel Comics were responsible for one of the highlights of New York Comic Con 2012: the appearance of Clark Gregg AKA Agent Coulson.

The head of Marvel Television took to the stage at the comic book convention, to update fans with the latest developments in the land of Marvel TV and that included the news that Agent Coulson lives on!

Clark Gregg is the first actor to have been cast in Joss Whedon’s forthcoming movie S.H.I.E.L.D; the news had the gathered throng chanting “Coulson, Coulson, Coulson,” to demonstrate their love both for the character and of course, for the actor that has played the role in a number of Marvel movies, including Iron Man, Thor and Avengers Assemble as well as the Ultimate Spider-Man TV series. A trailer of some of Coulson’s finest moments, revealed the words “An Honest Man. An Honorable Man. A Man of S.H.I.E.L.D… We thank him for his bravery.” By the time the trailer has scanned to his death scene, it read “We remember his Legacy. Always. Rest in Peace, Agent Phil Coulson 1969 - 2012.” By the time the trailer had drawn to a close, Gregg looked to be crying, according to the report from comicbookresources.com.

Joss Whedon later appeared on screen to pay tribute to Coulson, saying “We all love Clark Gregg, there’s no doubt about that. 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… He's headlining the S.H.I.E.L.D. show and always was.” Coulson fans, relax. He’s back.
