One of the longest running characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the moment is Clark Gregg’s ‘Phil Coulson’, who we first met in Iron Man. Following his introduction, the fan-favorite character went on to become an important piece of connective tissue for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the early days as well as an integral part behind-the-scenes in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Ever since the character was revived on the Marvel television series, fans have wondered if the films would eventually acknowledge this and re-unite the character with the members of The Avengers. While speaking with Zap2It, Clark Gregg again commented on the matter and revealed that he believes Coulson is ‘not happy’ with keeping this secret from his former friends.

I think Coulson is a moral person, and I think he feels really bad about it. He had great, obvious admiration for Captain America and fanboyed to the point where he almost burst into flames; despite all the snarky weariness he has about Tony Stark, he has a huge amount of admiration for him.

I think it hurts him that they don’t know. He hopes at some point he can make it clear to them that this was not a choice he made, but one that was made for him — and he can repair those relationships.

While Gregg is hopeful to see the characters re-united, he understands that Coulson has different focus at the moment and definitely has his hands full.

While I hope that scene happens someday, I think Coulson is really clear that he was given a job by Nick Fury that’s very specifically focused on re-building SHIELD with the people he has. And that has already proven necessary within this world to defeat a bubbling, underground, strong counter-attack from HYDRA and now an outbreak of Inhumans.

That’s his focus. He’s not biding his time, waiting for this [closure] to happen. He’s doing his thing, [The Avengers] are doing their thing.

While he’s not worry about when or if they will meet again, Gregg believes that if it happens and when “the time is right — if it’s done right — I’m sure that would be a terribly poignant and hilarious scene.” While I’d love to see the Son Of Coul cross paths with these characters again, I fully agree with Gregg that it needs to be done right. Here’s hoping Marvel has a plan for this one. Sound off with your thoughts on the subject in the comments section below.

    Infinity Wars should go all out and use characters from every Marvel property. If they’re all connected it’s the perfect time to truly show that.

      The operative word, being “IF”.

    “It really hurts my soul, that I got demoted to the little leagues, even though I’ve been a cheerleader for Marvel for the past 7 years. I called everyone a ‘hater’ for not watching AoShit, when the reality is, I was mad at myself for not getting the recognition I felt like I deserved. Because of the schism between Marvel TV, Netflix, and the movies, I’ve been benched. They keep telling me ‘#it’s all connected’, but they don’t even mention me on the Netflix shows. AoShit is the show that basically tows the line with all the dangling plotlines that no one cares about. FML.”

    • w0undedmagic

      It’s cool that you don’t like AoS, and I can agree that the #itsallconnected thing is a bit disingenuous, but still not untrue. I feel like people mistake a “shared universe” as being something that is ALWAYS all-inclusive to it’s characters and events-but that’s not how good stories are told. That’s not how the comics do it either-except “crossover events” and team books. Both AoS and the Netflix shows have acknowledged the events and characters of The Avengers-but the specific stories they’re telling are not (and shouldn’t have to be) relevant to each other. As far as Daredevil and Jessica Jones know-SHIELD was a shady organization that Cap helped dismantle. They don’t KNOW Steve Rogers, and Hydra isn’t part of their stories. How many comics have featured say, Ghost Rider and Gambit hanging out? Just because they’re in the same universe, doesn’t mean they must always be part of each other’s stories. Yes, I know that some of the business politics in Marvel Studios have allegedly played a part in the “lack” of crossover between AoS and the films. Even if that’s true, I think the writers have done a (mostly) good job telling all different kinds of stories in the same world, with some fun references thrown in.

I feel like people mistake a “shared universe” as being something that is ALWAYS all-inclusive to it’s characters and events-but that’s not how good stories are told.

        And you may be right, except that it’s the story that’s going on behind the scenes that’s driving the story that happens in front of the camera.

        The reality is, AoShit has struggled from the start. Which begs the major point that I continue to ask on all these comic-related sites:

        If this stuff is truly all connected, then why isn’t the movie-going audience getting that memo? How does the MCU movies go from 100M viewers (+/-) for those $B movies, to 4-5M viewers for these shows? AoShit is just the low end, but apparently DD and JJ suffer the same fate.

        I could see a 50% fall off, but a 95% fall off in viewership?? C’mon. It seems like the only people who are consistently tuning into these shows, are the Marvel die-hards. The casual viewer could really care less. Especially when people (re: kids) who rush out to watch the family friendly DIsney movies featuring their fave Marvel characters, can’t tune in to the Netflix stuff, where the drunken, psychotic JJ is giving her booty away (literally) to Luke Cage.

        That’s not how the comics do it either-except “crossover events” and team books.

        Well, when Marvel’s books are in a perpetual state of “events”, then that pretty much is how it works. But normally I would agree with you. It’s just that Marvel spent the past nearly 2 decades setting that precedent, but it’s one that they couldn’t maintain in other mediums.

        Both AoS and the Netflix shows have acknowledged the events and characters of The Avengers-but the specific stories they’re telling are not (and shouldn’t have to be) relevant to each other.

        I disagree. It’s alot easier to have a cameo from one of the AoShit actors on Netflix, or vice versa, than it would be for one of the Avengers to show up on those shows, or vice versa.

        This is especially the case, given the nature of SHIELD, as evinced on the show; if you’re going around hunting superhumans down (as is the show’s premise), then for you to not hop in your fancy jet, or flying car, and hop on over to NYC (which the show has used as a venue more than once, especially given the events of the first Avengers movie) and look into the tales of these fledgling “Defenders”, is not only downright nonsensical, but is also a letdown for those folks who were led to believe that “#it’s all connected”.

        There’s just too many reasons for why it should be happening, vs why it doesn’t.

        As far as Daredevil and Jessica Jones know-SHIELD was a shady organization that Cap helped dismantle. They don’t KNOW Steve Rogers, and Hydra isn’t part of their stories.

        I’ll grant you that. However, that knowledge shouldn’t be a one-way street. For AoShit to not at least mention the Defenders (when, again, it’s their job to know about all these super human people) is just an insult to the collective intelligence of the people watching these shows, based on the faulty premise. Especially when the first couple of seasons of AoShit was all about name-dropping the Avengers every chance they got.

        And you know it’s bad, when Robot Chicken is mocking you for this glaring elephant in the room (see the Youtube vid). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciWAI1YUxLA

        How many comics have featured say, Ghost Rider and Gambit hanging out?

        Not many (I only know of a couple), but that’s not the best example.

        Gambit and GR are not exactly going to cross paths in the MU. They’ve never really had any real reason to. However, DD, as a member of the Avengers (at least until recently, as far as I’m aware) would cross paths with Cap and other Avengers. During the AVX story, DD was front and center alongside Cap, as they were all standing on the SHIELD hellicarrier when they all invaded the X-Men.

        Even before he was an Avenger, DD and Cap were on great terms. There’s no reason that Cap, being from Brooklyn (in the MCU, but from Manhattan–not 20 blocks away from DD– in the comics) wouldn’t take interest in DD, or all these Defenders being that they live in roughly the same neighborhood.

        Incidentally, this is one of my main problems with the Marvel Universe proper (comics and film) mostly being centered around NYC. Between the X-Men, the Defenders, Avengers, FF, Spidey and others, you have a few 100 heroes living and operating within a 50 mile radius. This causes story problems on so many levels; there should be no reason whatsoever, that crime in NYC should be as high as it is in the MU. Never mind the fact that Marvel was dumb enough to put 911 in their comics as an actual event; you mean to tell me that Iron Man can fight the Hulk, and can have a few dozen “Mark 40-something” suits flying around, but neither he, nor anyone else in the Avengers can stop a couple of planes from crashing into the Towers? And that’s especially since Marvel’s NYC would look like super hero martial law has been declared. And not to mention, if a villain with half a brain decided to nuke NYC, then they would effectively wipe out 90% of the MU’s heroes.

        None of it makes any real sense.

        In other words, these MCU characters are far too closely “related” for them to not interact. Especially when NYC is ground-zero for alot of the events, just as it is in the comics. As big as NYC is, it’s really not that big, when you have a blind man fighting ninjas, and a military man fighting and killing the mob, and a (self)destructive superpowered chick stomping thru the city, and a (soon to be) superpowered Black dude (like that’s not gonna draw SHIELD’s attention??) doing the same, and a (soon to be) magical Kung-Fu dude also doing the same.

        If this were happening in various parts of the globe, then I could ALMOST understand it (although, we’ve seen SHIELD galavanting around the globe in their fancy jets and cars). But for all this to be happening in not only a single city, but within a 10-block radius, and for TPTB in the MCU to not take any notice, is down right silly.

        Just because they’re in the same universe, doesn’t mean they must always be part of each other’s stories. Yes, I know that some of the business politics in Marvel Studios have allegedly played a part in the “lack” of crossover between AoS and the films. Even if that’s true, I think the writers have done a (mostly) good job telling all different kinds of stories in the same world, with some fun references thrown in.

        The jury’s still out on that. I get the impression that, while I’m not sure if you’re a Marvel die-hard, you’re definitely not just the casual movie goer. As such, you can’t deny that there’s something to be said of the fact that Marvel hasn’t been able to maintain even half of their movie-going audience. The entire concept of “#it’s all connected” was a marketing tactic for that very purpose. And as such, it’s failed.

        The reality is, if Marvel never mentioned “#it’s all connected” beyond the movies, and never gave those nominal indicators in the first place, then you’d have to admit that it would be no different from watching DCTV, which does just as well as (if not better than) Marvel TV, and no one would be the wiser.

        • w0undedmagic

          It sounds more like you have a problem with how Marvel conducts business. As far as ratings-the shows are doing fine, they’ve found their audience and continue to get renewed AND have spinoffs in the works (Marvel’s Most Wanted). It would seem all of those numbers look good to them.
          Like I said, it’s cool that you don’t like AoS-and No, Daredevil [probably] won’t be beating guys to a pulp on ABC, or suing the Hulk for trashing the neighborhood. But, I’m still enjoying (most of) the content Marvel is putting out on all fronts-across their “shared universe”. And as a side-note, I can’t wait to begin the deep dive into DC’s universe in a few short weeks.

          • SAMURAI36

            It sound more like you have a problem with how Marvel conducts business.

            In part, yes. But I really don’t like the universe they created, in both the comics or the movies, nor most of their characters, a few exceptions (re: Spidey, Hulk, Black Panther, etc) notwithstanding.

            As far as ratings-the shows are doing fine, they’ve found their audience and continue to get renewed AND have spinoffs in the works (Marvel’s Most Wanted). It would seem all of those numbers look good to them.

            All you did here, was espouse the conventional wisdom, without actually examining or refuting my statements.

            Marvel has 2 shows on ABC, which is primetime TV on a MAJOR network. One of those shows is/was on the verge of being canceled (Agent Carter). Prior to getting in the syndication zone, the same thing applied to AoShit.

            The only reason these shows have survived, is because Marvel wants their own home-grown comic book TV content, in order to contend with their largest competitor, who is DOMINATING comic book TV right now.

            There’s no way that those numbers look good to them, when they are perfectly willing to pull the plug on shows that rank 1 or 2 points higher, even midway thru their seasons.

            Yet, AoShit’s numbers have continued to fall. Nobody in their right mind would view that as a good thing. And nobody does, as evinced by NUMEROUS sites reporting on it:

            http://tvseriesfinale.com/tv-show/marvels-agents-of-shield-season-three-ratings-38242/

            And Agent Carter was on the chopping block as well:

            http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2016/01/26/abc-renewcancel-standings-week-18-agent-carter-takes-a-fall/

            And for perspective, it makes no sense that AoShit and Carter are competing in ratings with shows like Flash and Arrow, when A) both those shows are on a small cable network, and B) neither of those shows have the backing of a HUGELY successful “cinematic universe”.

            And that’s to say nothing of Marvel Netflix. If the rumors are to be believed (and I personally do), then they are barely faring any better than Marvel ABC. People lauded the darker angle, and going the “streaming” route, but those shows are doing roughly the same numbers as their primetime counterparts.

            And if you think “Marvel’s Most Wanted” is gonna break the bank, then perhaps you really are a Marvel die-hard. This show is gonna tank harder than the other two.

            Like I said, it’s cool that you don’t like AoS-and No, Daredevil [probably] won’t be beating guys to a pulp on ABC, or suing the Hulk for trashing the neighborhood. But, I’m still enjoying (most of) the content Marvel is putting out on all fronts-across their “shared universe”.

            Fair enough. You like what you like. I’m merely pointing out the facts, is all.

            And as a side-note, I can’t wait to begin the deep dive into DC’s universe in a few short weeks.

            And on this one point, we definitely agree.

          • w0undedmagic

            Spinning numbers is a fools errand. Ask Ant-Man and Man of Steel-people are still arguing those films success. (And please, I don’t want to). I get it though, its a hobby for some people to become invested in ratings, reviews and BO grosses-but you’re kidding when you say you’re stating facts. The facts are that these shows continue to exist because they are profitable for Marvel. Synergy is their goal, but you’ve made it clear that its not what you wanted/expected.

          • SAMURAI36

            I’m not really sure how to respond to this, in any way that doesn’t result in ad hominem.

            Is it not true, that ABC has canceled shows with better ratings? Is it not true that AoShit has mediocre numbers, as reported by several of the “official” sites? Is it not true that AC was on the verge of cancellation?

            I’m just trying to figure out which aspects of my statements were false. Either it’s a fact, or it’s not.

            Now, the only thing that I’d admit to being conjecture on my part, is the reason WHY these shows continue to be renewed, in spite of faltering ratings. But I vehemently disagree as to your “profitable” reasoning. Now, if you are trying to say that Marvel TV exists for the sole purpose of pushing the movies, then I’d perhaps concede that point. Perhaps. But in and of themselves, those shows are no more profitable, than any other show that ABC has recently canceled with BETTER ratings. Hence, my earlier conclusion.

            As a part of a larger universe, I’d concede that Ant-Man was a “success”. But as a stand-alone film, Ant-Man was as mediocre as Marvel TV is, in both BO, as well as ratings. AND, if it were not a part of a shared universe, I posit that it would have tanked much harder (I’d surmise as much for most of the MCU, for that matter).

            I agree that synergy is indeed their goal, but that’s not what they achieved in their execution.

          • w0undedmagic

            “I agree that synergy is indeed their goal, but that’s not what they achieved in their execution.”

            …In your opinion.

            Basically, you want to argue semantics. Another fool’s errand. You want to be taken seriously with all of your stats and links to various sites that are bought and paid for by larger corporations, yet you not-so-cleverly refer to the show as “AoShit”. You use Robot Chicken to validate your opinion. You claim that AoS is a failure, even though it continues to get renewed and a spinoff show is being developed. Continuing to pump money into a “failure” is bad business-and Marvel, no-DISNEY (love them or hate them), doesn’t allow bad business. AoS hasn’t been canceled because people are watching it. I’m not interested in arguing semantics. Moving on…

          • SAMURAI36

            Basically, you want to argue semantics. Another fool’s errand.

            You’re calling it “semantics”, as a way of giving yourself an out. Not once have you really refuted what I’m saying. You want me to agree to disagree with you, because it saves you the trouble of conceding. You had no wins here from the start. I’ve been bombarding you with FACTS since my very first reply.

            You want to disagree, because it makes your precious Marvel look good in your mind. Sorry that I’m not allowing you that luxury.

            You want to be taken seriously with all of your stats and links to various sites that are bought and paid for by larger corporations, yet you not-so-cleverly refer to the show as “AoShit”. You use Robot Chicken to validate your opinion.

            Sooo, you’re debasing the merit of my arguments, because I call it AoShit, and offered RC as a joke? This is just your disingenuous way of looking for any excuse to justify your not having an actual rebuttal for anything I’ve said.

            And I really don’t get the “various sites….larger corporations” statement. So, would my points somehow have had more value, if I cited some fan-based blogs as my evidence? I thought the point of an argument, was to cite valid, universally trusted sources???

            You claim that AoS is a failure, even though it continues to get renewed and a spinoff show is being developed.

            And this makes any sort of sense…. How, exactly? These are mutually exclusive concepts. Not only do you not know/understand Marvel history, but you seem to not know/understand TV history as well.

            But again, you’re not really refuting anything here, just repeating yourself.

            Continuing to pump money into a “failure” is bad business-and Marvel, no-DISNEY (love them or hate them), doesn’t allow bad business.

            You are definitely sounding like a Marvel die-hard, if you think that both Marvel and/or Disney (either independently or separately) haven’t made bad business decisions, in either the distant or recent past.

            The same company (Marvel) whose CEO (Ike Perlmutter):

            1) nearly bankrupted the company, by

            2) being almost single handedly responsible for the comics implosion in the 90’s

            3) sold off all the multimedia rights to their characters

            4) got into a licensing embargo with Fox

            5) attempted to broker a comic book embargo with local comic shops against DC

            6) TWICE!! And failed both times

            7) got sued because of his discrimination against Black women

            I guess all of these are “semantics” too, right?

            <blockquoteAoS hasn't been canceled because people are watching it.

            So then, why have other shows with larger ratings get canceled? And what, IYO, would be the cut-off point for these shows, before they get canceled?

            Or, is this a question based on “semantics” too?

            I’m not interested in arguing semantics. Moving on…

            Yes, perhaps you should move on, since you couldn’t refute any of my FACTS. Let someone else have a try at bat.

          • Patrick Doyle

            3) sold off all the multimedia rights to their characters-

            ^*THIS*^ is how they MADE $$ back! DC did it too *BUT* DC put EVERYTHING under WB & a ‘mere’ 12 MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE movies later, The Justice League is *FINALLY* ready to play Washington Generals to the MCU’s Harlem Globetrotters! I’ve seen them *ALL* BUT when Singer’s Superman, the poor B!$+@RD behind GREEN LANTERN & even Nolan’s Batman trilogy CAN’T be used financially to start the DDCU WTF are the going to do when seamen, I mean Aquaman want’s to be taken seriously, call Spongebob? What Marvel managed to do w/ RDJr was AMAZING IMHO (he was ‘washed-up.’ When he mentions ‘A phoenix metaphor’ in IRON MAN 2, he might as well use his own name! He could even be talking about MARVEL or comic book sales) None of this takes away from DC, as IRON MAN was financially ‘spanked’ by THE DARK KNIGHT (WHAT WASN’T?) THOR & CAPTAIN AMERICA used the ring of ‘Avengers Assemble’ to best GREEN LANTERN & I was surprised, I liked & own all 3! Then MARVEL STUDIOS did something UNPRECEDENTED in cinema history, they merged 4 franchises into one cross-over event & MADE A PROFIT OPENING WEEKEND! ANT-MAN & GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, I’ll admit even die-hard fans were worried about those, but they must have met MARVEL’s #s as the sequels are coming.

            The fact that MARVEL sold *MOST* of their rights is HOW they made their $$ back (MARVEL STUDIOS gets a % of EVERY FOX, SONY/COLUMBIA ect. movie their characters are in) @ one point NOBODY in the AVENGERS movie was under MARVEL, BUT the rights reverted as contract stipulations lapsed (Studio X *MUST* have a characters movie on screen by –/–/—- & have a new movie out for said character every ‘?’ # of years or MARVEL STUDIOS gets them back ‘No Strings Attached ‘) I *STILL* CAN’T explain the HULK contract, all ‘answers’ about it have been legal non-answers. SONY/COLUMBIA is/was having similar problems to MARVEL’S past & agreed to ‘make nice’ w/ Spidey BUT he’s *STILL* ‘theirs. ‘

            The fact of the matter is that if you like either of these comic book companies, then *ANY* quality movie from EITHER is a WIN! $#!+ like FAN4STIC hurts *EVERYBODY!* I’m looking forward to BvsS: DAWN OF JUSTICE, BUT FIRST I will be watching DAREDEVIL SEASON 2 & PEE-WEE’S BIG MOVIE, then MAN OF STEEL! After all of that I’ll start my MARVEL MULTIMEDIA MARATHON from IRON MAN to ANT-MAN to prepare for CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (I WILL also be including AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. & AGENT CARTER therein)

            *IF* ANY of these aren’t to your liking (& some are better than others, even fans SHOULD be able to admit that) that’s cool too!

    • Jason Carpio

      Creatively probably ticks him off. But the TV show is a consistent paycheck unlike the movies. Especially for a lead character of a series vs a bit player in a movie. Plus Agents of Shield has been really good this year.

      • SAMURAI36

        If you say so. The numbers say otherwise.

  • breakerbaker

    The problem I have with this, aside from the fact that it’s completely implausible that they’d be able to keep these secrets from the Avengers (I mean, they portrayed the fact that he was alive as almost common knowledge within SHIELD during the first season of the show, and three of the Avengers were SHIELD operatives during that time–and then you have the fallout of Winter Soldier, which is when the cat should have come out of the bag), it’s the fact that there’s no good reason to keep up the charade any longer. At this point, it’s only a secret to the Avengers, and there’s not a good reason to keep it any longer.

    • SAMURAI36

      AGREED. Especially since Tony seems quite competent enough to find this out on his own, especially since he downloaded all of SHIELD’s files with a flick of the wrist in the first Avengers film. AND, nobody called him on it, or was able to stop him.

      But his rogue SHIELD faction is able to fly around the globe in their fancy black jets, pimping down the street in their flying cars, and fighting super villains in the street, and NOBODY has caught glimpse of it??

      I call BS, of the highest order.

    • Soumya Dham

      Winter Soldier would’ve been the perfect film to address this, as it was also a SHIELD-centric story. I don’t get it, The Avengers deserve to know that he is alive and well. The sooner this happens the better.

      • breakerbaker

        I understand the impulse to want to let the whole thing breathe a bit longer than the year between bringing him back (AoS Episode I) and the release of Winter Soldier. I don’t get the impulse behind saving it for Infinity Wars (assuming it’s even in the cards to do it then).

        Some may say that Inhumans is really the next logical place to do it, and that’s been pushed back beyond the Infinity War, and presumably after the death of at least one of the original Avengers (it’s going to have to happen at some point, right). I’m kind of leaning to the feeling that until that movie has a director and cast assigned to it, I don’t think it’s going to be made.

        If they never do bring Coulson, which seems like it could plausibly be the actual plan, then it will probably mean that the movies will never acknowledge any of the events of the show. And if that’s the case, it will be like the show never happened in the context of the movies (which is the way it already is). The question is how fans would respond if the thin connection between movies and film was officially severed.

        • Soumya Dham

          I get the waiting, but in a few more years it will become irrelevant (seeing the changing times in the MCU). And the show should remain separate from the movies, but Coulson WAS in the movies, so it would be pretty nice to bring him back. Not to mention, necessary.

  • Chris W

    I think as the more time passes, the more ridiculous it will be to reintroduce him in to the universe. It should have been done in winter soldier or something.

  • Fate Jacket X

    In terms of “snarky weariness,” I always felt Coulson and Stark had a genuine friendship going.

  • Soumya Dham

    His death was such an important part in uniting the team, one can even argue that he IS the reason The Avengers exist. And yet his revival is being handled so casually. This information of him being alive can possibly tear apart The Avengers, kill all remaining trust about Fury and much much worse. Moreover, The Avengers deserve to know about their friend being alive. This is very important and definitely needs to be addressed during Infinity War.

    • SAMURAI36

      His death was such an important part in uniting the team, one can even argue that he IS the reason The Avengers exist.

      Really? Because he had less than 20 minutes of screen time, between the 3-4 movies he was in. And here, I thought the Avengers formed, because Fury was pulling a team together. Shows what I know…..

      And LOL at them being “friends”. When did that happen? Perhaps at the same time as when Tony claims he and Cap were “friends” as well??

      Talk about revisionist history….

      • Soumya Dham

        Screen time doesn’t matter. Fury didn’t appear for long before the Avengers film either. Btw, Fury is a fantastic failure at everything (remember how he missed out HYDRA within his own organisation?). The Avengers were called in prematurely because Loki stole the Tesseract, but the emotional core behind them ‘assembling’ was Coulson’s death. He was the glue connecting all the Phase 1 films and characters, but then maybe your idea of friendship is different from mine.

        But i don’t need to convince u bro, just voicing my opinion. :)
