Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D Wouldn’t Be the Same Without Clark Gregg
If you felt a hint of sadness when Agent Phil Coulson died in the arms of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury – incidentally, that was the moment when The Avengers became more than just a movie for me – then it might interest you to know we have not seen the last of that brave man who gave his life to hinder the plans of Loki. He may be dead, but Marvel has found a way to bring him back when they need to and in a way that makes total and complete sense within the grounds of reality. And all it took was to create a television series.
According to Marvel, during the Marvel Television Presents panel at New York Comic Con, it was was announced Clark Gregg would reprise his Agent Coulson role in the upcoming live-action series Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. The announcement came when Gregg was speaking about doing his work on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, when a video featuring Avengers director Joss Whedon and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige broke the news that Gregg would be “headlining” the S.H.I.E.L.D. series, and it would take place before Coulson’s death, thus enabling it to still be a part of the same continuity as the movies without making his sacrifice meaningless. I don’t think anyone would’ve been okay with him being resurrected by magic or whatever.
The pilot will be co-written by Whedon with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. The writers will also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb. Gregg has been a key part of holding the Marvel Cinematic Universe together by appearing in nearly every film, those being Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers. Seeing a series revolving around S.H.I.E.L.D. just wouldn’t feel right without his presence in some capacity. The series pilot is being shot for ABC. Fingers crossed it gets picked up for a full series order.
