Joss Whedon: Avengers' Coulson was always going to die

Dec 28 2012, 4:16am CST | by

Joss Whedon has revealed Agent Phil Coulson was always going to die in 'The Avengers'.

The film's director said Marvel Studios, which produced the movie, always intended to kill off the fan favourite S.H.I.E.L.D. agent - played by Clark Gregg - in the epic superhero blockbuster, although his character will return in a spin-off TV show.

Speaking at a screening of the film at the Directors Guild in Hollywood, he said: ''Coulson's death was mandated in the first meeting by Kevin Feige (producer).

''I can't say that enough times. Apparently I have some kind of reputation that we won't discuss right now, but I do love to kill people. Clark himself said when we were shooting that it was obvious that it had to happen, otherwise all of this becomes irresponsible. There's no toll or actual downside to this very bad idea of bringing all of these people together. As a film it's just irresponsible. That's why we're bringing him back for a 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' series.''

Clark Gregg - who also appeared as Coulson in 'Iron Man', 'Iron Man 2' and 'Thor' - will reprise his role in the spin-off TV show, 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' which is set to begin shooting next year.

'The Avengers' - which saw heroes Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk and Captain America unite for the first time on the big screen - has grossed more than $1.5 billion worldwide.

Whedon is returning to write and direct a sequel which has a tentative release date of May 2015.

Hulk and Hawkeye Get the Spotlight in New ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Images

Aug 27 2014 12:20pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

If we had any complaint about the first Avengers, it was that there wasn’t nearly enough of Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk or Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye. Fortunately, Kevin Feige has already promised to remedy that lack in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the latest batch of images indicate that he plans to deliver. Hulk and Hawkeye figure prominently in these new stills, along with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Quicksilver (Aaron Tayl ...

I am a huge horror buff. For years, my friend and I have spent many an evening hunting down some of the most interesting, most terrifying horror movies around. This search has most often lead us to some really awful films. Films so bad we're not sure how they even convinced anyone to fund them. The search has also lead to a whole subgenre that has filled us with much joy – the crappy but still funny and hugely entertaining horror movie that isn ...

Avengers 3: Is Marvel Killing The Magic?

Aug 15 2014 10:42pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

I can see the headline - "Guardians of the Galaxy Astounds with 165 million dollar debut!" Really, it is astounding because without promos who even knew who the Guardians of the Galaxy were. But you had the name "Marvel Comics" on the project so what did you expect? People flock to the theaters like stampeding cattle because its another Marvel movie and the reason why all comes down to The Avengers. Financially, the first Avenger's movie ...

Don’t Expect to See Thanos in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

Jul 31 2014 2:15pm CDT | Source: slash film

The Marvel supervillain Thanos was first teased in the post-credits sequence for The Avengers, and his influence is felt in this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy. But it’ll be a while before we really get to know him better. Kevin Feige confirmed that the Mad Titan is “not a part” of Avengers: Age of Ultron — though in typically coy fashion, he admits “nothing’s definitive” at this point. Hit the ...

Star Wars: Episode VII, Fantastic Four, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part One, Chappie... these are only a few of the major release that aren't coming to Comic Con this year. Either a lot of these movies simply don't have enough footage ready or some studios are beginning to care less about Comic Con. Hopefully it's not the latter case. Some of those films listed will make some sort of an apperance, but it's a shame they ...
