Cobie Smulders Says S.H.I.E.L.D. Is Agent Coulson's Show

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Cobie Smulders reaffirms ongoing discussions with ABC about guest starring and/or joining their television show based on Marvel Comics' S.H.I.E.L.D. and drops a clue as to which character will be the focus.

I can't really talk too much about it because there's some talks about it, regarding Maria Hill. But Joss Whedon is a genius and any opportunity that I have to say words that he has written I will take. Clark [Gregg] this is sort of his show. I love Clark and want to be apart of it. But we'll see.

We know pretty much nothing about the plot of the show and this is our first indication that Coulson is indeed the focus of the show. Initially rumored as being just a cameo in the pilot, it was then revealed that Coulson will be an ongoing cast member and now we have this clue from Smulders that Coulson will be the Capt. Mal Reynolds of the group. If you look at Whedon's past television work, his history is rich in ensembles but there's always a clear-cut central character among the cast. Looks like Agent Coulson's legend will be growing ever larger.
