This just in agent Coulson isn’t dead! Clark Gregg will reprise his role as agent Phil Coulson in Joss Wheadon’s television adaptation of Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot for ABC television which he played in the Iron Man movies, Thor and most recently The Avengers.
I sure hope this show succeeds because I love anything Marvel related and I’ve heard talk that it may even be adding some Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast members to the show as well. Right now it only has a pilot order but if that changes will let you know.
