ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres in the fall and one of the more intriguing aspects of the show is how a supposedly dead Agent Coulson will return. Marvel creative consultant Joss Whedon has spoken to EW about the return of the fan-favorite character, admitting that the Agent Coulson comeback has been handled with care:
We’re gonna earn it. That’s not something you take lightly.
The last time we saw Agent Coulson he was bleeding out on the floor at the hands of Loki so I'm excited to see how the show runners explain his return. I've heard rumors that Agent Coulson faked his own death in order to inspire the Avengers to defeat Loki and the Chitauri but I guess we'll have to wait until the Season premiere in the fall to find out for sure.
