Despite a heroic death in The Avengers, fans of Agent Phil Coulson have been calling on the powers that be to bring him back.
One popular solution is to turn the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent into the comics’ synthezoid member, the Vision.
Actor Clark Gregg, who has played the agent in Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Thor, however, has told MTV Splashpage that he’s not a fan of that idea.
“Vision is cool,” the actor said. “But I would hate to be any A.I. life form. If I got to come back, I would need to still be somebody who could wisecrack, because my favorite part of the job was that if anybody was going to tease anybody about their diva superhero outfit or whatever, it would be me.”
Agent Coulson can still be seen (voiced by Gregg) in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon series.
