After the death of Marvel's The Avengers' Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), and his eventual resurrection on the ABC TV series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., many have wondered if the character will be back on the big screen in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
While writer-director Joss Whedon revealed that may be possible down the road, he currently isn't pursuing that story line at the moment.
"He could. Right now it's not something I'm pursuing because I have so much going on in Avengers 2. Finding out that Coulson is alive would be an entire B story. And I already have too much movie. That's better than the other thing."
Marvel's announcement of The Avengers: Age of Ultron title was one of the biggest stories coming out of Comic-Con 2013 last week in San Diego. While official story details are scant at the moment, we reported that the Ultron character will get a completely different origin story in the sequel. In the Marvel comic books, Ultron is an android creation of scientist Hank Pym (a.k.a. Ant-Man), who becomes sentient and devotes his existence to wiping out all of humanity.
We'll keep you posted as soon as more information is revealed regarding The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
