Phil Coulson Lives! And We Now (Possibly) Know Why
There have been many rumours as to how S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson will return in the ABC TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but /Film seem to have the answer. Of course spoilers for the show lie ahead so read on at your own risk.
In The Avengers we saw Coulson die after being stabbed by Loki’s sceptre. The idea is that he didn’t actually die, he just faked his death in order to motivate the team of heroes. This was said to be known by various members of S.H.I.E.L.D. but as we well know, not by The Avengers. The plan was ordered by Nick Fury, who made Coulson hold his breath for as long as possible to make The Avengers think he was dead. Once things had died down after the events in the movie, he became an active member of S.H.I.E.L.D. once again. Of course, we can imagine that The Avengers won’t be all to pleased about this and hopefully this idea will be explored further in either upcoming movies or the TV show. What do you think of this idea? Tell me in the comments section below. At first I thought it sounded quite rubbish and not very imaginative but as we uncover more details it makes more sense and actually seems like something that would happen in the MCU.
