Not long ago, it was revealed that a S.H.I.E.L.D Tv show was in the works, and that it would include none other than Agent Phil Coulson as one of its primary cast members. While Info was scarce about its time line and the production, it has now been confirmed today that it will indeed take place after The Avengers, which begs the question, Is Coulson alive? or will he be featured primarily in Flash Backs.
The report comes from none other than IGN, who caught up with ABC President Paul Lee, who revealed this about the TV shows pilot.
“There is no question that it is part of the Marvel Universe. In fact, the story takes place after the battle for New York.”
But despite its obvious Connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was also revealed that this show may be presented as more stand alone.
“This is S.H.I.E.L.D. They’re following their own particular stories. There are characters in it, Coulson, who clearly comes from Avengers. So it’s part of the world, but we’re going to be very, very careful that we don’t tread on the toes of the features and build a whole new world. And that’s what Joss Whedon does better than anybody else. He’s built a world for us.”
“I think if we’re lucky enough to have a great series, we’re obviously having fun with that. At this point though, we have a number of characters at the heart of the script who are real characters, who are the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and the first task is to make those guys great and relatable and everything that a great show needs. Beyond that, fingers crossed!”
