Do we ever find out who Coulson's parents are?

  • The MCU wiki gives their names as Robert and Julie but I'm not sure where they're getting them from.

    @OrangeDog Don't we? We certainly don't mind it here and in a lot of cases it is very positively received. Maybe you're thinking of M&TV where they have the trivia close reason. Also in this case when you go digging into it, the answer is (maybe) there and it's quite interesting from a research perspective.

    I'll just go ask "Who are Caoulson's grandparents in AoS", "What colour ties does Fury own", and "In S4E12 what brand is the phone on the desk" then?

There's a S.H.I.E.L.D. file out there on Coulson which lists his father and mother's names as Robert and Julie.

Two SHIELD Files on Coulson, Family section quoted below

Robert Coulson, Father DECEASED 09-22-1987
Julie Coulson, Mother DECEASED 09-22-1992

However, this source is a bit dubious. It appears to have been present on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Files page of the MCU Wiki at one point in time but has since been removed. I found this one over on the Marvel Cinematic Database's page S.H.I.E.L.D. Files but this wiki is less trustworthy than the MCU Wiki. On top of that the dates for the parents being the same apart from the years is a tad odd.

This is the only source I've found so far for their names but I'm not entirely sure where it has come from so I wouldn't trust it completely as I know there were fan creations of these files going around at one point. I could be wrong and it might be legitimate so I'd be interested in finding out where it came from.

  • The file may come from The Avengers DVD extras but I can't check that myself to be sure.
