Agent Coulson Lays Down the Law in a New Extended Trailer for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD


Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennett and Brent Dalton in MARVEL'S AGENTS OF SHIELD TV Series 2

Marvel and ABC have released a new, extended trailer for their upcoming “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”, and it’s Coulson-rific. The idea behind the pilot seems to be introducing audiences to the world of SHIELD through the eyes of new agent Grant Ward (played by Brett Dalton). You can definitely tell the pilot was co-written by Joss Whedon given all the snappy patter in just these two and a half minutes. “Oh,” indeed.

“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” is scheduled to lay down the law this Fall on ABC.

“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, who assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).

Starring Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennett, Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker.

    I’m sorry but Coulson being alive is fucking stupid. Whether he turns out to be a life model decoy or a cyborg or secretly a Skrull the whole time or an earth-X iteration, it’s still Clark Gregg onscreen so walking back the death that formed “The Avengers’s” second act inciting action is cheap. Frankly, it’s loosey-goosey continuity/retcon crap like this that keeps me from getting back into superhero comic books again.

    Now that I’ve burned my soapbox, still waiting/hoping for signs of Clay Quartermain

      I agree, this is a dickslap to the face of everybody who liked The Avengers. I really think his death in the movie was kind of a bad plot device; the rift caused by everyone “fighting” while under the influence of the mind gem really shouldn’t have needed a death to unify them. Loki mindfucking them should have been enough to unify them alone.

      The scene where they fight with each other is the only scene I really cringe through in that movie; as an afterthought, and not a complaint, I would rather have seen then fight with each other AFTER the Hulk destroyed the airship- They would have all blamed each other for what went wrong, and there would have been more legitimacy behind the scene. Fury’s lie about reverse engineering Hydra and Asgardian tech could have still been a factor as well- he could have introduced those weapons for use in that scene.

      That way, they could have been pissed that the mind gem interfered with them saving everyone, and would have had enough motivation to unify against Loki, and prove they could work as a team. Same warm and fuzzies, except it would make sense that Coulson is alive. Not a complaint, just an afterthought.

        With the kind of egos involved messing with their minds would’ve made it personal but not enough for them to really gel. They’d have been all after Loki for their personal reasons, not as a team.

    Can’t wait!

    Okay seriously. You guys are complaining but I can easily see this just beeing A Bait and Switch. Coulson never died. Got injured bad, but never died. Like the man himself said, The Avengers wouldn’t work without something to Avenge. Coulson and Fury had it planned out from the get go. This is exactly the sort of plan I see fury coming up with, it may have happened differently than planned (they couldn’t forsee the Helicarrier attack) but it was always “in the cards” (See what I did there with the pun, and Coulson’s Captain America cards and…ah forget it!) Also the whole thing about Level 7 being a secret has been in play from “The Consultant” so him faking his death isn’t really that hard to swallow.

    I really can’t wait for this. Oh and if people hadn’t heard apparently J. August Richards is playing Elvin Holiday aka Rage of the New Warriors.

      New Warriors? Smart!!!!

    • Juggernaut

      That makes a whole lot of sense! I was wondering why they would include such a potentially huge character in the cannon like Luke Cage used in a tv series. Rage, however, is a really good idea. There are so many gateway characters in the New Warriors alone! Having these second and third tier characters explored in the series should be great.

    “Don’t ever tell me there’s no way!!”

    Coulson lives!!
