There was a lot of shock and heartbreak when S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson (Clark Greg) died in the very first Avengers movie. Appearing in Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and in Thor, Coulson had become a staple, and fans became fond of the high-ranking member S.H.I.E.L.D.
Though the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Marvel TV series revealed that Coulson had survived the bullet that supposedly killed him in Marvel’s very first Avengers team-up movie, the character wasn’t allowed to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe – until Captain Marvel, that is.
Set in the 90’s, Brie Larson’s first standalone movie a Captain Marvel will see the return of Gregg’s Coulson to the MCU. Not only will the film feature the agent’s very first major super-powered S.H.I.E.L.D. assignment, but according to Gregg, Captain Marvel will also feature the beginning of the agen’ts working relationship with Nicky Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).
Speaking in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gregg talks about a cute moment when Coulson meets Fury, and it looks like fans are going to love the scene between characters in Captain Marvel.
“He’s a relatively new S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who is obsessed with MC Hammer and dresses just like him, and it makes Director Fury so angry,” Gregg revealed when spoke with the publication. “The genie pants don’t really go with the Armani.”
It really sounds like it’s going to be a delight to see Agent Coulson again on the big screen. We can’t wait to see the agent and the agent’s different quirks when he appears in Captain Marvel.
