Agent Coulson Finally Gets a Poster for 'The Avengers'

He's played a role in most of the movies so doesn't he deserve his own poster?

A couple weeks ago, Disney and Marvel released six posters showing the Avengers fighting along side another teammate. There was one person missing from those posters, Agent Phil Coulson.

There might be some that would argue he isn't really a member of the the Avengers so that explains why he wasn't featured. Well, Nick Fury and Maria Hill had their own. How much of a role will Hill play in the movie? That's actually been a topic of discussion in a meeting we had at the office.

Fans of Agent Coulson can rejoice as it's finally been revealed that he will in fact get his own poster.

I guess now it's a matter of whether or not movie theaters will feature this poster front and center or if they'll keep the Black Widow one up instead.

Why is it that so few of the main characters have actual superpowers..........or at least a super suit? Coulson is cool and all but I don't want him or Hill for that matter to be front and center enough to have their own poster

YAY!!

excellent, I like Clark Gregg's acting and I think he brings a more light hearted comedic mood to the whole project.

If pressed though as to which poster I'd like to stare at though, it's Widow all the way :)

I still think coulsons weird demeanor is a sign of him being an LMD (life model decoy)

Where is Cobie's poster? :(

im glad to see that he has his own poster now. he is part of The Avengers, though his not a hero with a special power, but he is a hero in his own simple way. we in otakucastle.com are very excited to see it in the silver screen ;)

She was on Nick Fury's poster. Avengers would be her first movie hence why they are focusing on those who are known. Most already had one movie, or appeared in another movie (Looking at you, Hawkeye.) But who knows. Maybe she'll get one too.

Four years ago, first Iron Man movie, I thought this guy was douch-us ignoramus...now I'm this guy's biggest fan. ::Breaks out into cheer:: Coulson! Coulson! Coulson! Soooo curious as to what we can look forward to with him in the film. Ugh is it May yet??

I think he deserves a poster. Especially because he will probably play a bigger part in the Avengers movie.

Clearly the most important character in the movie.

Godspeed Coulson.

Posted by TheGoddamBatman

Why did they make him look really old?

Posted by CATPANEXE

Not sure if because they had a Coulson cinematic universe comic recently that they tried promoting heavily, but definitely certain that...

That. Something tells me it's going to be a bit of a surprise even with his character...

Posted by THEBlaqueBasterd

he is probably gonna be the administrator/laison for the the Avengers to SHIELD but also has a few surpises up his sleeve.. if you've noticed in his appearances he doesnt get fazed by ANYTHING.. Billionaire Playboys OR "Demi-Gods" so hes the ideal link-man between the two organisations

Posted by fourawesome

haha looks like a spy kids poster

Posted by fodigg

I kind of wish they'd shown him doing something less "action pose-y". It would fit the character better if he was, I dunno, cleaning up after a fight or filing paperwork or something. I mean, yeah he's a badass but the whole point is that he's a badass without making you think he's a badass.

It's easy to fall for the comic straight man. He and RDJ were great, and I hope they can have similar moments with him and the rest of the cast. He should be humorously exasperated by everything punctuated by moments of extreme badass that he then ignores.

That would be interesting. Not sure if I'd like that or be annoyed by it. It would depend on how they implemented it.

Posted by fodigg

You know, he's kind of the film Avengers version of Jarvis.

Posted by KidSupreme

They are gonna make a movie on Agent Coulson!! :D

Posted by nonfiction91

@fodigg: well, he really is one of those characters that producers don't expect to catch a fan-base.Really the guy hasn't done too much except get smacked by the destroyer and be on scene at these events. So if he is an LMD he is probably used like a bomb bot that finds IED's and disarms them so the actual people aren't harmed,that being why nick fury never handles these personally. Well... one reason out of about 5 why he's never there, anyway :P

second post by @fodigg: yeah now that you say that he's more Jarvis than anything, just liaison instead of butler, but he still basically cleans up their messes. It's funny that Avengers Coulsons' more Jarvis than Avengers Jarvis. XD
