Marvel dropped a bombshell at their New York Comic-Con panel today, announcing Clark Gregg will reprise his role as Agent Phil Coulson in Joss Whedon's live-action television series Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. The actor made a surprise appearance at the Marvel Television Presents panel, promoting Ultimate Spiderman.
This comes as welcome news, especially after Gregg's well-received appearances in recent Marvel films. Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. will be produced by Joss and Jed Whedon, along with Maurissa Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.
