It’s been confirmed that my (perhaps everybody’s) favorite SHIELD agent, Phil Coulson, will be in Joss Whedon’s new ABC pilot based on the Marvel universe government agency.
Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, was first introduced in 2008’s Iron Man and was in three of the five movies leading up to Marvel’s The Avengers (Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Thor), and then in The Avengers. The only news that could be as equally awesome would be if somebody told me How I Met Your Mother was finally ending so Cobie Smulders could reprise her Avengers role as well. Somebody make that happen; the clock is ticking for Ted to meet The Mother.
