I’m sure I’m not the only person who did a little bit of an excitement-wee when they saw the new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D promo revealed. So let’s have a little look at it together shall we…
Well first of all, we need to hear the ins and outs of how he manages to survive before we jump to any rash conclusions. We never actually see a dead Coulson carted off now, do we?
It’s already known that Nick Fury, in his infinite eye-patched wisdom, fudged the details a little to make Coulson’s death more dramatic (if you remember rightly, those trading cards were in Coulson’s locker… not his jacket pocket). My spidey-senses tell me there could have been more fakery going on there than we thought in order to inspire those crazy messed up superheroes to pull together. Credit to you Fury, it did one hell of a job!
If that’s the case, it will see Fury as more of a leader, almost a puppet-master, which is true to character and almost enhances the non-death of Coulson rather than cheapening it.
All in all, I think we can expect a very Whedon-humoured (“Don’t touch Lola”), action packed, true to the comic books series, littered with nerd-on inducing references. My guess is it’ll be following lesser known arcs and characters, and setting up for some truly badass cameos in Avengers 2.
Who are you hoping to see in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D? What are your thoughts on the survival of Agent Coulson? Let us know!
