Spoilerific details on how Coulson’s still alive in S.H.I.E.L.D show!

Big fat SPOILER alert!

You know how Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) was killed in “The Avengers”? And you know how Agent Coulson is somehow alive in the upcoming sequel series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”? And you know how nobody knows how the heck that’s even possible? Yep? Well, someone might have the answer.

Again, spoiler alert!

Can we please get that in capitals now, editor?

SPOILER ALERT.

Thank you. That’s better. I Appreciate it. Don’t want people having their shows ruined for them.

So, according to /Film, here’s how Agent Coulson ‘survives’ “The Avengers” and therefore is able to be a part of the “S.H.I.E.L.D” series…

In the pilot, it’s revealed Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the ultimate super spy, faked Agent Coulson’s death on purpose to motivate The Avengers. Some S.H.I.E.L.D. members were in on it (including, possibly, Maria Hill played by Cobie Smulders) but The Avengers were not. Their security clearance wasn’t high enough. Coulson was forced to hold his breath as part of the ruse and that’s a point of contention among his colleagues After the fact, Fury moved him to a remote location until things died down, and then he was reinserted into duty at the time of the show.

Hold his breath!?

Ahem.

Anyway, we’ll see whether Joss Whedon can make it work when “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” hits the air later this year.

Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).

Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.
