Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

COULSON IS ALIVE!!!





Oh, yeah, also ABC is planning on airing this show in its fall lineup. Pilot co-written and directed by Joss Whedon.

Quote:
Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, Marvel’s The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
http://spinoff.comicbookresources.co...ther-new-name/

I almost don't care if it's a huge flop and cancelled in the third episode. Coulson is alive and they CAN'T cancel it by summarily bumping him off again!

Well, so far, the show has yet to be officially ordered to series. It's almost a total impossibility that wouldn't happen, though.

The rumor I heard is that Phil Coulson becomes the Vision for Avengers II.

I don't think that was an actual rumor...just fans saying "Wouldn't it be cool if..."

I'm not sure I believe that. Is there anybody in Hollywood powerful enough to force Joss Whedon to do that? Because I doubt he would on his own.

Maybe it's a fake leak to cover up the LMD speculation, which really is a perfect solution.

No one ever dies in the Marvel Universe. NO ONE.

Except "Uncle" Ben Parker. He died for our sins.

I thought that "solution" seemed kind of obvious, actually. Even in the movie, when there was no possibility of this TV show.

Just caught an Agents of SHIELD preview during Once Upon a Time, with "Coming Soon" at the end.

Coulson has a really nice car....

I think the way in the link is what I kind of expected, even while watching The Avengers. That's what I thought they were setting up for.

Though of course, with Joss, making Coulson a Buffy-bot wouldn't be out of the question either.

There is a Spider-Man cartoon on these days. Agent Coulson is in that show as well. It looks just like him and I bet the actor voices him as well. I think he is the principal at the school Peter Parker goes to. To keep an eye on him and a couple other young superheroes.

Not that this relates to anything. Just something I thought of and I felt like typing.

What's the current Spider-Man cartoon on now?

The most recent one I watched was the one with Neil Patrick Harris, on MTV.

It's not the worst cartoon in the world, but not the best animated version of Spidey either.

Ultimate Spider-Man is a re-imagining. Luke Cage and Iron Fist are also neophyte superheroes in the same high school as Spidey. The Marvel Ultimate universe doesn't have the Avengers, it has the Ultimates. And Agent/Principal Coulsen dated Aunt May, who's much younger and hipper than her 616 counterpart.

After watching the extended preview, I'm guessing the answer to my question is yes.

I don't know what other Marvel character he could be, unless they've given Joss carte blanche to create his own superhero.

I hope hope this is good. Been wanting a sci-fi show worthy of live viewing since Heroes.

My guess is that the super powered folks will mostly be new creations. They would do that to avoid copyright battles with all the various studios that hold the rights to all the various characters. Easier to just create your own and then you can do whatever you like with them.

The only characters who other studios have now are Spidey, the FF, and the X-Men (none of whom would be wasted in a SHIELD TV show anyway). And if it were easier just to create their own, they would have done it in the comics, where the last seriously successful character created was, what, Wolverine? 1974?

Nah, if they're going to use super-heroes (I haven't seen the trailer yet), then they'll plunder Marvel's vast catalog. They'd be fools not to.

More than likely the C List. Doubt we will see any heavy hitters.
