Clark Gregg Seemingly Confirms Return Of 'Agent Coulson' In Iron Man 3!

Clark Gregg Seemingly Confirms Return Of 'Agent Coulson' In <i>Iron Man 3</i>!

Responding to a fans request that Joss Whedon doesn't kill off the popular Agent Coulson in The Avengers, Clark Gregg may have quite possible confirmed that he'll be back for the third installment in the Iron Man franchise...

Ok, it's best not to get too excited about this just yet. When questioned about his future in the upcoming Marvel Studios movies, Clark Gregg (who has acheived near cult status with fans after his portrayal of S.H.I.E.L.D Agent Coulson in 2008's Iron Man) has remained pretty tight lipped, but the following Tweet may mean Joss Whedon won't have to worry about an angry mob coming after him should he decide to kill off Coulson in The Avengers.

This is of course a bit of a tease by the actor, and is in no way solid confirmation that he'll be back. Of course, that doesn't mean we can't look on the bright side and hope that this is indeed a good indication that we'll see Coulson up on the big screen for a long time to come!

I think he said a while back that he wasn't sure if he'd be back, but would know in a few weeks. I'd say it's been a few weeks. ;P
Hope he's back though, he's one of the best things in the MCU.

he is the glue!
jasonicus - 9/1/2011, 11:15 AM
I wouldn't notice if he didn't show up or not. Anyone could fill in for his role in this.

marvel72 - 9/1/2011, 11:18 AM
he'll be pretty much every marvel movie made,one way of keeping them all linked.

The dude got himself a sweet gig over at Marvel…if he plays his card right (so far he is), his Agent Coulson character could live on the big screen for years to come

I wonder if Clark ever imagined that he'd be the glue to the whole MCU.

I'm really happy on how his character turned out.

See? He's not a Skrull!
Fogs - 9/1/2011, 11:39 AM
LOL @nuck82!!!

I really like Coulson. I hope Marvel decide to put his character into the comics - like when DC put Harley Quinn into their comicbook storylines.

I could give two [frick]s about agent coulson

I want a tee-shirt, or possibly a keychain -- maybe even just a bumper sticker -- which reads "What Would Agent Coulson Do?"

Coulson = Wedge Antilles of the Marvel Cinematic U.

@BackwardGalaxy "Coulson = Wedge Antilles of the Marvel Cinematic U."

i dont understand why people like this guy so much,he's a corny cartoonish character with out emotion or purpose he just shows up and does nothing but make smart ass remarks in serious situations???he was ok in ironman 1 and that was it!

Clark Gregg is one awesome dude for answering my tweets. Gotta love an actor who engages with the fans on a daily basis. I've totally stopped worrying that Coulson is gonna be Whed-whacked in the Avengers. He's too cool to die!
ElBicho - 9/1/2011, 1:55 PM

Great call! Love them both!
agentofshield - 9/1/2011, 1:56 PM
awe. i was really really hoping he would turn out to be a skrull

:::crosses fingers for maria hill:::

Coulson is bad ass!!!!
Urban8er - 9/1/2011, 2:11 PM
Yeah!!!!! That'll be amazing to see him again!!!
soaponapope - 9/1/2011, 2:31 PM
well he is a cool character. usually when they make up new characters for films that were not in the source material it fails. but coulson has been a nice success, i think because they didn't over-do him or over expose him. we only see him here and there, for a little bit at a time and then he's gone. yet he manages to seem important to the story. they struck a nice balance with coulson, so i think that's a big reason why fans of the comics haven't turned on him and ravaged him
HULK2099 - 9/1/2011, 6:58 PM
Wait until actual comic shield agents come into the movies, steal the spot light away from him, like dum dum Dugan :D
Prophet - 9/1/2011, 7:22 PM
Ya, turns out Agent Coulson is an easier character to market than the patently ridiculous Dum Dum :p

I would love to see an Agent Coulsen version of "Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe."
