Agent Coulson Will Return for Joss Whedon’s SHIELD Series

I think none of us believed we had seen the last of Agent Coulson, and we were right! Turns out Clark Gregg is returning to his most famous role for Joss Whedon’s upcoming SHIELD series.

The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, and his casting means he’ll be in a supervisory role to the five other main characters who have already been announced (but not yet casted).

(Avengers spoilers follow)

THR says in their piece that this means “The casting brings Agent Coulson back to life after the character died in Disney’s The Avengers,” but I’m not so sure. Do we actually have confirmation anywhere that the SHIELD show takes place AFTER The Avengers? I mean it could, and Coulson could come back to life in some magical way, but I doubt it. Once Whedon kills characters (and he does so often) they don’t usually rise from their graves.

This is great news though, as it’s a good bridge between the movies and show. If I had to guess, I bet we’ll see Sam Jackson in a few episodes, and maybe some of the other main heroes will guest star as well at some point.
