Attending the Tribeca Film Festival to promote his own sophomore directorial effort titled Trust Me, the multihyphenate Clark Gregg spoke about his return as Agent Phil Coulson in Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’.
The actor discusses Phil Coulson’s return from the dead, but the method of Coulson’s return is going to remain a mystery:
I don’t know how you could not change going through what he went through. I think if he hadn’t gone through some kind of change, it wouldn’t be any good. That said, I don’t know if he understands how much he’s changed.
However, fans won’t be disappointed:
When Joss described to me the mystery… and the complexity and the unanswered questions about Phil Coulson standing there trying to deal with this, I found it so fascinating and so true to the world of the comics and mythology in general as I understand them that I was immediately in.
It seems like his resurrection will be kept a secret from some of the Earth’s mightiest heroes. Therefore, Gregg teases;
Some level of deception must have been perpetrated on the Avengers. It must have been. I think.
Besides, the entire Avengers crew mourned his death so must be affected by his return. ABC will hopefully announce a full season pick up soon.
