Phil Coulson

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D – Quick Thoughts

Today was the premier of ABC’s new television show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., from producer Joss Whedon, and is basically a spin off or a tie in to the Marvel movies, and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Cobie Smulders reprises her role as Agent Maria Hill, as well as Clark Gregg returning as Agent Phil Coulson.  They touched on a bit on what happened to Phil after the event’s of NY, but they elude to the fact about ‘Tahiti‘.  Great hook if you ask me, as it’s still has me wondering what it is.  Anyway, I am just glad there is something new to watch, and something geeky too.  The cast I feel was fairly strong, and Chloe Bennet who plays Skye is just all kinds of cuteness.

Not My Photo – Chloe Bennet – just gorgeous

 

Ming Na‘s take down of the cop poser was pretty cool, albeit too quickly, but still cool.  She did play as Chun-Li back in the day before settling in as an ER Doctor.  Pacing of the show was good, as well as the set up to what the main subject matter is for the season (the centipede).  I like how it tied in the stuff that was in Iron Man 3.   I wonder if they will tie in stuff from the show in upcoming movies, and kind of continue back to the show.  hmm

Anyway, I am so looking forward to this show, and I am hoping it stays strong.  Something to look forward to at the early end of the week.

It’s official, Agent Coulson survived Loki’s attack!

My theory (and a lot of other nerd’s theory’s) has been confirmed (sort of).  Agent Coulson did not die in the Avengers.  Instead, Nick Fury lied, just to get the misguided superheroes head straight and focus on what needs to get done.  Anyway, I was a bit sad, and angered when I first saw the Avengers, then, when I saw it again a few more times on Blu-Ray, it just didn’t add up.  Why would Phil just die like that, after being in 2 Iron Man‘s and in Thor.  Then, the S.H.I.E.L.D TV series was announced and it was said that Phil was going to be in that show.

Now I know that comic book time lines are not quite arrow straight, but c’mon, a TV series based off of the movie.  Anyway, at SXSW during a panel, Whedon was asked if Coulson survived the Avengers, and his response;

I’ll tell you guys this: Heimlich.

 

So I wonder which of the upcoming Marvel movies will Clark Gregg get resurrected.

Anyway, Whedon just wrapped up the pilot episode, and I cannot wait to see this show.
