Joss Whedon Confirms Agent Coulson Is Returning From The Dead In S.H.I.E.L.D.
It seems you can put those theories of Life Model Decoys, holograms, clones, Skrull impostor and any other presumptive rationales about how Agent Coulson will return to star in ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D. show away.
From previous interviews, we knew Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) would be the lead of ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D. show but we didn't know how showrunners Maurissa Tancharoen, Joss,Jed, Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb would accomplish this seeing as how Coulson died at the hands of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in The Avengers. With the show taking place after the climatic battle with the Chituari in NYC many theorized that Coulson would be seen in flashback, that he was really a robot, a Skrull shape-shifter or something else equally outlandish. Well S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Joss Whedon told the crowd at SXSW that Coulson is in fact returning from the dead.
“I’ll tell you guys this, Heimlich,” Whedon joked, before effectively clamming up about the show. “I can’t talk about it,” he admitted, but said that he did bring Coulson back from the dead for the ABC drama. “Yes. For realsies.”
Now that it's established that Coulson really did die in The Avengers and that Fury didn't lie to the other Avengers, the question now is HOW does Coulson come back from the dead? There are a number of items and methods that this could be used to accomplish this in the pages of Marvel Comics but the vast majority of such devices have yet to be presented in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
And for anyone still doubting, Agent Coulson himself, Clark Gregg is spreading the news on twitter.
