Agent Coulson Exclusive Reveal
A long time coming, a while overdue IMHO. Actor Clark Gregg is now part of the 616 Marvel Universe. Coulson will be revealed to be the long-time friend of Marcus Johnson, the long-lost son of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Nick Fury.
Special Agent Phil Coulson is a fictional character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which crosses over several Marvel Studios superhero films. Coulson first appeared as a member of the fictional agency S.H.I.E.L.D. in Jon Favreau's 2008 film Iron Man, where he was portrayed by American actor Clark Gregg. Gregg then signed a multi-film deal with Marvel Studios and reprised the role in Favreau's 2010 film Iron Man 2 and Kenneth Branagh's 2011 film Thor. Gregg also stars as Coulson in Joss Whedon's 2012 film The Avengers and be the subject of a series of short films and "digicomics". Gregg voices the character in the cartoon series Ultimate Spider-Man, where he is undercover as Peter Parker's school principal.
Coulson will make his Marvel 616 debut in the sixth and final issue of the Marvel Comics miniseries Battle Scars.
