How Clark Gregg returns in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series has been revealed
Spoiler Alert! It looks like the explanation behind how the late Agent Coulson will be returning to life on the upcoming ABC series AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. has been revealed online. There have been many theories about how the show would tackle having Clark Gregg as a main character on the series. Some thought the show would take place prior to the events in THE AVENGERS while others considered more cosmic ways to resurrect him. But, the explanation offered by Slash Film is nowhere near what I was expecting.
Again, if you don't want to know how they will be bringing Coulson back, you shouldn't even be reading this. But, if you are, please continue and feel free to chastise me in the talk backs below for even posting this to begin with.
In the pilot, itís revealed Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the ultimate super spy, faked Agent Coulsonís death on purpose to motivate The Avengers. Some S.H.I.E.L.D. members were in on it (including, possibly, Maria Hill played by Cobie Smulders) but The Avengers were not. Their security clearance wasnít high enough. Coulson was forced to hold his breath as part of the ruse and thatís a point of contention among his colleagues After the fact, Fury moved him to a remote location until things died down, and then he was reinserted into duty at the time of the show.
That seems a little lame, if you ask me. How the hell do you fake a death witnessed by other characters? Thor was there when Loki stabbed Coulson while Nick Fury and Maria Hill were there at his death. I mean, you see him die in THE AVENGERS. Why would they fake the death for dramatic effect? Something sounds fishy about this story, which Slash Film presents with no source. So, at this point take it as a rumor. If it does turn out to be true, what do you think?
AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. is expected to air this Fall on ABC.
|Extra Tidbit:||It does seem kind of cool that Samuel L. Jackson may make a cameo in the pilot.|
