NYCC 2012: Marvel TV - Agent Coulson Returning to S.H.I.E.L.D.

Boy what a panel. Let me just get the great, awesome, fantastic news out of the way first.

Coulson lives.

Yeah that’s right. In the upcoming SHIELD TV series for ABC executively produced by Joss Whedon, Clark Gregg AKA Agent Phil Coulson will be leading the ensemble of SHIELD Operatives. Gregg announced it himself in the flesh, along with Whedon and Kevin Feige who were there via a prerecorded video.

There was also a tribute video for Agent Coulson which brought Gregg to tears.

On the animated side of things we were shown Hulk: Agents of SMASH test footage. As much as it was action packed I just can’t get over the Hulk speaking in complete fully worded sentences. Seth Green was announced among the voice cast as A-Bomb. The upcoming season of Ultimate Spider-Man will focus on the Sinister Six. Lastly, we were shown footage of the new animated Avengers series to replace Avenger: EMH titled Avengers Assemble -- simply put it looked awesome, from the humorous dynamics to the over the top action, the only thing I didn’t like? Hawkeye is wearing a red uniform. Call me a purist but I like him in his classic purple.

Well that was it! The Marvel TV panel blew me away and for good reason.

What show are you most excited for?
