Agent Coulson is Actually Alive, Returning in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Show

So after all that speculation about Coulson’s death and fandom’s refusal to actually believe it, here’s word from New York Comic Con – Agent Coulson is in fact (probably) alive and well. Actor Clark Gregg surprised a Marvel television panel to talk about Coulson’s ongoing role in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon when a special mesage came via Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige. It seems that Coulson was always going to be the lead in the S.H.I.E.L.D. television show. We’ve also been promised that Agent Phil won’t be used in flashback or Force-ghost style, so it would appear that he is indeed somehow alive. Speculations?

Seems as though Avengers fans knew it in their hearts way ahead of the pack.
