S.H.I.E.L.D TV series with Clark Gregg tops best news of NYCC
In all the fuss of New York's Comic Con this past weekend, one of the most exciting announcements came from Marvel head of television Jeph Loeb involving The Avengers TV spinoff S.H.I.E.L.D.: Clark Gregg will be reviving his praised role as Agent Phil Coulson.
Coulson first appeared in the modern Marvel film universe in 2008's Iron Man as a mere consultant with a plan, but tragically bowed out in the past year's Avengers. Executive producer Joss Whedon has assured fans that there will be no stretching of time and reality, so speculation has run wild on timeline, cloning, etcetera. The only certainty is that Gregg will portray Coulson again in the pilot, Whedon co-writing with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.
Further character, story, and casting are all too murky right now, not to mention that Marvel is rushing ahead with the The Avengers' sequel (again to be helmed by King Whedon) and respective character films.
The spinoff will be distrubted in Disney's realm on ABC sometime in 2013. Get excited with Clark Gregg in an interview from NYCC below, right after the announcement hit ears.
