Marvel and Joss Whedon apparently threw a swerve with Agent Phil Coulson’s outcome in The Avengers. Today at the New York Comic-Con, Whedon and Marvel’s Kevin Feige revealed to fans that Coulson is making a return as the lead in ABC’s S.H.I.E.L.D.

They didn’t shine any light on how Coulson is back, but nonetheless, it’s a big and very welcomed surprise. Agent Coulson stole the show whenever he was on screen in previous Marvel films. He’s bound to make the perfect lead in a television series.

A video was released as well with actor Clark Gregg, which you can watch HERE.
