New Details On Marvel's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D & Coulson's Resurrection
Ahead of next week's SDCC panel, EW have managed to uncover some new details on Marvel's upcoming tv series, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. The site reveal a couple of very interesting things about Agent Coulson's (Clark Gregg) return too, so if you don't mind mild SPOILERS, click on..
Next week is Comic-Con time, and one tv panel that has fanboys very excited indeed is Marvels Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. In anticipation of that Hall H presentation, EW have managed to uncover some early info ABC's plans; including some new details on Agent Coulson's much speculated upon return from the great beyond -- It would seem that Coulson is not aware that he was ever dead in the first place! There's also info on how the series will tie into Marvel's big screen output, and whether we'll finally find out who J. August Richards in playing (hint: it probably is Rage) at SDCC.
1. The pilot hints at how mild-mannered kick-ass bureaucrat Agent Coulson (Clarke Gregg) was resurrected to lead the team after being killed off in The Avengers (his S.H.I.E.L.D. colleagues say he must “never know the truth” about his death). Yet you’ll have to keep watching to learn the full story. “We can’t wait to pull the curtain back on that,” says co-creator Jed Whedon. “[But] we’re going to take our time.”
2. The S.H.I.E.L.D. story will work in tandem with the Marvel films, both past and upcoming. In fact, the first episode will pick up a storyline that’s familiar from one of the Marvel hits — and it’s not The Avengers. “We plan on trying to weave in between the films and try to make them more rewarding on both ends,” says Jed Whedon, who points out the trick is to make the audience not ask a certain fanboy-bar-fight-style question: “In any of these [episodes], you can always ask: ‘Why don’t they just call Iron Man?’” Yeah, that would be annoying! So our next question is: Why don’t they just call Iron Man? “They are aware of each other,” Whedon says of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team and the metal-suited Malibu playboy, “but they do have to have their own lives.”
3. Here’s a question from the Internets that will be answered in the pilot: Does J. August Richards play Rage? Expect that and other revelations at the Comic-Con panel, just not a ton of them. “We’ll finally be able to answer some questions,” says co-creator Maurissa Tancharoen. “Though I’m sure we’ll have to stay on the vague end of the spectrum.”
