I am so incredibly late to this party. Last night I was getting ready to fold laundry, and looking for something to watch while I did. Galavant came up in our “recommended” section, so I figured I would check it out. I’m so freaking happy that I did.
Agent Coulson- I’m Agent Coulson with the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. Pepper- That’s quite a mouthful.
Agent Coulson- I know. We’re working on it.
-Iron Man, 2008
Ever since S.H.I.E.L.D’s first brief intro in Iron Man back in 2008, fans have wanted more of the organization and of Agent Coulson himself. Played by the illustrious Clark Gregg, Coulson quickly became a fan favorite. His somewhat brief appearances in Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Thor left us wanting to know more about him and about this verse’s version of S.H.I.E.L.D., and our wish is coming true. ABC has given the go ahead for a pilot episode directed by Joss Whedon, and if they like it (and let’s be real, who wouldn’t), then the show will premiere in fall of this year, and is to be set after the events of The Avengers. For those of you who had their hearts ripped out when Coulson was killed in The Avengers, I’m sure you’re wondering about his role in the upcoming show.
