Joss Whedon stated that Agent Coulson will "remain dead" for Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, with the strong tie-in between Agents of SHIELD and the movies, is there any information if Agent Coulson will return to cinema in the future (for example in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War)?

I'm not asking for speculations. I just found it curious that Joss Whedon said, that Coulson will remain dead "for Avengers: Age of Ultron", instead of saying "for the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe".

  • I've voted to close this as primarily opinion based - we simply have no idea about the plans for the character moving forward beyond the obvious Agents of SHIELD season 3. That being said, the in fighting between the Marvel Studios film and TV departments makes it seem unlikely, at least to me. – Dr R Dizzle Jun 15 '15 at 8:52

    @DrRDizzle: “the in fighting between the Marvel Studios film and TV departments” — that kind of sounds like the start of a reasonable answer! You tease. – Paul D. Waite Jun 15 '15 at 8:54

    @AlexanderMills Well then as of right now, no. Clark Gregg (the actor who plays Agent Coulson) has not been cast in any Marvel Cinematic Universe films currently in production. That being said, thanks to the events of the show Coulson now has the potential to be involved in a number of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, including Captain America: Civil War and The Inhumans. – Dr R Dizzle Jun 15 '15 at 9:03

    Yes. He's slated to appear in Captain Marvel. But that's kind of cheating, since that takes place in the 90's. – DonielF May 8 '18 at 21:39

When Joss Whedon was in charge like you said there was never going be a Coulson, but now that he is not longer attached to the Avengers movies who knows.

Coulson is definitely a fan favourite, which is why he was put on Agents of Shield. I wouldn't be surprised if he starts appearing again to tie tv and movies closer together since Joss isn't there to stop it.

It really makes a lot of marketing sense to have more crossover with tv and movies like the way Winter Solider really had an impact on the show, while Age of Ultron was barely a passing remark and had essentially no impact.
