Maybe it’s telling, but all I can fucking think about when reading that Mark Waid will be bringing Agents of SHIELD to Marvel’s comic universe is this: “What the fuck is going to happen to Weaver and Hickman’s SHIELD?” Cause honestly? If the former is going to cause the latter’s demise — fuck that.
Clark Gregg wants Agent Coulson to get into the Marvel action poppin’ off on Netflix. The geek-turned-actor has lamented that he will be “totally butt hurt” and “rife with fanboy gloom” (I’m paraphrasing) if he doesn’t get a shot to act next to whomever shall play Danny Rand. I mean yeah dude I appreciate your zeal and shit, but like. Everybody in the MCU thinks you’re mortis.
Hey, it’s a new promo for Agents of SHIELD. It’s really short. Doesn’t feature much. However, it’s pretty neat that this show exists. A couple of days ago I mentioned to my Dad that Coulson lived, and he’d be on the TV show. Goddamn blew his ass out. Couldn’t believe we were getting a TV show from the Avengers movie. It served as a reminder that the entire enterprise is pretty cool.
Still on the fence as to whether Coulson lives? Watch this trailer. Now we can sit around and speculate about other characters. Oh yeah, and the trailer is pretty dope.
Interesting. Here are a bunch of viral videos for Agents of SHIELD. They’re neat enough. What is intriguing about them however is that they raise the question of when the show takes place. Many a person has speculated that Coulson is actually dead, and the television show takes place prior to Avengers. These videos could corroborate such a belief. I mean, the Hulk is a “real life creature” being investigated? Seeing Iron Man on film a big deal? Motherfuckers are both wayyy out in open by the time of the Avengers credits roll.
Here is a fairly unexciting debut trailer for ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. You have Coulson (and while it is antithetical to say, I don’t really care about him) and friends tackling strange events and stuff. My guess? Superhero procedural. I’ll be there, even if I am fairly apathetic towards this first glimpse.
Recently at SXSW, Joss Whedon broke down why Agent Coulson ain’t fucking dead. I mean, I thought that Whedon got a legitimate erection when he killed off a character. A throbbing, pulsating dong-hammer. So bringing the Agent back has to be for a good reason, right? Right?! Whedon’s reasoning makes sense to me.
Here is the thing about working NYCC: I go nowhere, see nothing, learn about less. I just heard that Agent Coulson lives, which is a total jolt to my geek g-spot. Enough to pay for the fucking wi-fi here at the convention center so I could post about it. Cyeah!
The Avengers should be as necessary to you this weekend as breathing, if:
– You saw and enjoyed the Marvel Universe films of the past five years — like Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America.
– You read and enjoy superhero comic books.
– You have a fucking pulse.
If two of these things apply, you’ve probably already seen it. If all three do, you saw it last night at midnight like the rest of us.
Here’s a poster for the Avengers with Nick Fury and Agent Coulson. Legit question: does anyone actually give a fuck about Agent Coulson? I’m genuinely interested.
