Okay so the last we heard from Joss Whedon’s Marvel TV series pilot it was renamed as , now we are getting a small segment of information about the show from the man of the hour Clark Gregg aka Agent Phil Coulson. The following information comes from my favourite place, superherohype:
“Attending the Tribeca Film Festival to promote his second directorial effort, Trust Me, the multitalented Clark Gregg spoke with Screen Rant about his return as Agent Phil Coulson in ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”.
“I don’t know how you could not change going through what he went through,” Gregg says of Coulson’s state of mind during the show. “I think if he hadn’t gone through some kind of change, it wouldn’t be any good. That said, I don’t know if he understands how much he’s changed.”
For the time being, the method of Coulson’s return is going to remain a mystery. Gregg promises, however, that fans won’t be disappointed.
“When Joss described to me the mystery,” he explains, “…and the complexity and the unanswered questions about Phil Coulson standing there trying to deal with this, I found it so fascinating and so true to the world of the comics and mythology in general as I understand them that I was immediately in.”
While we may not yet know exactly the method of Coulson’s return, it sounds like his resurrection will be kept a secret from some of the Earth’s mightiest heroes.
“[S]ome level of deception must have been perpetrated on the Avengers,” Gregg teases. “It must have been. I think.”

Even though we don’t get too much in the way of new information we do get some interesting facts about Coulson’s character and how he changes after the events of The Avengers. It’s great to see Clark Gregg so enthusiastic about his character and the way he talks about Coulson’s return makes me hopeful that Joss Whedon did a good job on resurrecting the character. I like how there was talk about how the battle of New York has affected Coulson and changed him, some elements like those aren’t always taken into consideration so its nice that to know that big events like those don’t just disappear from people’s minds. We see that for all the stuff that Gregg knows there’s a lot of things he doesn’t know and he’s still waiting to find out some info just as much as us fans are. I seriously can’t wait to see what kind of material Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. has in store for us when the pilot hits later on this year.
