"Coulson Lives" - that totally ruins that tear jerking bloody trading cards bit in 'The Avengers'.

One of Whedon's biggest flaws IMHO.  I'll never forget the annoyance of seeing Spike die heroically in Buffy's finale only to have him show up in Angel five minutes later.  See also: Darla.

Oh c'mon - it's an adaptation of a comic book - resurrections are the norm.

Sounds like they're going to use his resurrection as a plot thread anyway.

We didn't see a corpse...

Fury does often lie...

I half expected an injured Coulson at the end of Avengers, so in my head. Fury lied, smeared the cards in blood himself & Coulson was in intensive care while the team thought he was in the morgue.

Simples.

Sure, but in comics it usually undermines whatever was good or dramatic about the death in the first place, and Coulson's death in particular is at the schmaltzy heart of The Avengers movie.  None of which means I won't enjoy seeing Clark Gregg doing his thing again.

Looking forward to Minty: The Return now!

Or it could be before The Avengers film?

And is that Luke Cage at the start of the trailer??

At least Buffy's mum stayed dead.
We never really die.

From what I've read it's set after the Avengers.

It doesn't bother me, I can still enjoy Aliens despite the events of Alien 3 making it pointless.

Apart from that one time.  Which was very cool.

Should clarify that I think Whedon is a living god, and any criticisms I have are those of a devout worshipper.  It just seems odd for a creator who makes great dramatic mileage out of sudden and unexpected death among his beloved casts to be going about resurrecting them (See also: Jehovah).  Basically what I'm saying is WHY NOT ANYA OR WASH, YOU BASTARD.

Lots of things are the norm in comics, like alienating female audience members, poor characters and dodgy racial politics - doesn't mean we should endorse them in other media.

Of course, Coulson is a brand character now, appearing in the comics, videogames and cartoons, so Marvel naturally want their mileage out of him.
