Joss Whedon opens up about Agent Coulson’s Death in Marvel’s The Avengers and his return in the up-coming S.H.I.E.L.D TV Show

Yes that’s right, Coulson’s death. It’s not a spoiler now, it’s fact. One of the most shocking momnets in film history, well for sci-fi fans anyway, was when Loki killed Agent Phil Coulson in Marvel’s The Avengers. During an interview with assignmentx.com, Joss Whedon talked about the iconic scene. I haven’t read much on this before so this is very exciting for me.
“Coulson’s death was mandated in the first meeting by Kevin Feige,” says Whedon. “ 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.” – Joss Whedon
Whedon does like to have a bit of death in his stories but that’s life. He tells it like it his and that’s why the Avengers was so successful.
