SDCC '13: Joss Whedon Says Agent Coulson Is Not In The Current Draft Of 'AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON'

Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) seemingly met his demise at the hands of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in Marvel's The Avengers but he's coming back this September in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Will he also be back for The Avengers sequel?


Speaking at SDCC 2013, "Avengers: Age of Ultron" director and screenwriter Joss Whedon said that Agent Phil Coulson is currently not in his draft of the film. However, he didn't rule out a possible change in the plan of action admitting, "He could. Right now it's not something I'm pursuing because I have so much going on in "Avengers" 2. Finding out that Coulson is alive would be an entire B story. And I already have too much movie. That's better than the other thing." Indeed, there's new additions of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch along with an evil sentient robot named Ultron - there's definitely going to be a lot going on in The Avengers sequel.

In the interview, Whedon also discussed Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury and the possibility of the character appearing in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Whedon stated that they have to walk a fine line with crossing over into the films, "Well, I don't need to see that movie. I saw it on TV."
