Agent Coulson is a true testament to the majesty of The Avengers, and the Marvel universe in general. It’s a no-brainer that a bunch of superheroes will demand attention — human-cyborg hybrids, genetically altered psychotics, you know the team. But when the secret agent whose job it is to rally the troops together is awesome enough to warrant his own poster, that’s when you know you’ve got a movie worth watching.
Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) has shown up in Iron Man and Thor as a representative of S.H.I.E.L.D., helping to create the superhero team you’ll see at the center of the upcoming The Avengers. And in this movie, Coulson looks to finally get the spotlight he deserves. The Avengers comes to theaters May 4.
