Marvel's Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada talks more here about bringing back Clark Gregg's 'Agent Coulson' for small screen project Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D., and also shares his thoughts on why he believes that the series will appeal to new and old fans alike.
In a chat with at this weekend's New York Comic Con, Marvel's Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada has shared a few more details about the highly anticipated debut of Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. We don't know a lot of details at this point about the direction that the series will take, but the fact that Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) will return after seemingly being killed off in Marvel's The Avengers, has led to an awful lot of theories!

"He plays Agent Coulson. I really can't tell too much more than that because I'd be revealing too much of the show's structure, but we're thrilled to build the show around him. First of all, aside from being an amazing actor, Clark is one of the sweetest guys you'd ever encounter. We cast him as Agent Coulson in the 'Ultimate Spider-Man' cartoon and we got his permission to do his likeness and of course, he voices the character. You've just never seen anybody who's so happy to have this character that's built around him and he' part of this mythology. My best moment is when I said to him, 'Hey Clark, you're going to be in the comics, too. Coulson is going to be in the Marvel Universe.' And he literally melted, it was like fanboy glee."
"We have incredibly high hopes for the TV show. I think Clark is obviously going to be a huge breakout star. Again, I read, I know what the show's about and I think Marvel fans are going to be absolutely over the moon with it and those people who watched "The Avengers" movie -- not many people who didn't -- are going to be incredibly happy with it and satisfied with it. Those who don't know anything about "The Avengers" or the Marvel Universe are going to love it as well because it's a very unique show that we're creating."
