Agent Coulson Poster The Avengers Agent Coulson Poster Looks Dapper

A lot of information was shared yesterday when Disney lifted the embargo on The Avengers set visits. We didn’t visit the set ourselves but we did round up all of the important bits of information learned from the two-day event, which included interviews with most of the principal cast.

Standing alongside the titular heroes Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye all throughout Marvel Studios’ series of films is S.H.I.E.L.D., the organization led by Nick Fury which is in charge of The Avengers initiative. One key player integral to recruiting and supervising the heroes is fan-favorite Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) and as such, he gets to star in his own movie poster.

Agent Phil Coulson is a character who – unlike the rest of the cast – originated in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and not the comic books. He’s an operative of S.H.I.E.L.D. who first appeared in Iron Man in a minor role, then later exploded as a face for the franchise and Marvel’s marketing efforts.

Clark Gregg’s performance as Coulson and the fan response earned him a multi-picture contract with Marvel Studios, bringing back the character for key parts in Iron Man 2, Thor and this summer for The Avengers (Marvel’s biggest movie to date), where Clark Gregg says he’ll have a prominent role and some cool action scenes.

He’s also featured in the viral marketing campaign for SHIELD and starred in the Marvel one-shots, while also making appearances in the comics, including Ultimate Spider-Man. We can now also add cool poster to his list of Agent Coulson’s appearances, as shared by Clark Gregg himself over Twitter:

Good on Marvel for giving Coulson (and Gregg) his due. I wouldn’t want to be the target of that stink eye. Be sure to check out the rest of The Avengers character posters.

The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Clark Gregg, Tom Hiddleston and Stellan Skarsgard. It is of course written and directed by Joss Whedon, opening in theaters on May 4, 2012.

  1. The posters and standees released for this movie are poor in my opinion. Same picture/background. I hate the fake looking backdrop. You would think they could atleast drop a nice poster or something but they just keep reausing the same one in diffrent sizes.

    • To me these posters are in line with MOST action movie posters. Not sure what you were expecting.

      • just goes to show age doesnt matter if your in hollywood, money buys everything

        • I was expectkng them to be up to par with motst marvel movies.

        • Every marvel movie I’ve seen has released completely diffrent posters atleast 2 and a unique standee. I’ve seen the same generic stuff from this movie

  2. Happy birthday to Clark Gregg!
    Can’t believe he’s 50… he looks about 40-ish IMO – just goes to show, age doesn’t matter that much if you can kick some serious ass ;)
    Anyway, awesome poster…

  3. I don’t know anything about Agent Phil Coulson, other than his brief cameos in movies. Does he have any unique abilities, or is he just an elite agent, with special rank and/or skills?

    • Just an agent as far as we know.

    • you can see him pick a fight with two thieves in the Captain America featurette “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer”. Not a lot, but you’ll see some skills he has.

  4. rightfully deserved

    • When the workd goes to s***, Keep Calm and Call Coulson.

      • If I may ask, where can I get a larger image like the one you have as your avatar?

            • Thanks man! :D

      • fanastic avatar man!

        • If they put that on a T-shirt… I’d buy it.

          • I can email you the image and you can go to a create your own t-shirt website and make the shirt yourself. You can prolly find a local store thst does the same with a good google search.

            • That’s a great idea (I’ll probably even save some money that way).
              I got the pic, so I’ll try to find a T-shirt shop next week.

  5. Coulsen is like the harley quinn of marvel.

  6. Is Nick Fury using him as a human shield? Kinda neat how he got his own poster…

  7. Ha! I’ve only just noticed the “Avengers” “A” in May. Nice touch.

  8. I like how Fury is about to p*ss himself and Coulson just stands there … daring anyone and anything to come at him.

  9. I’m all for a Coulson poster but having Fury behind him like that that seems odd.

    • Should have been Maria Hill…

      • <<—-agrees

    • It’s because they created a large, wide image with all the characters, and chopped into smaller posters. Some of the characters are overlapping or in the background like Fury.

    • He should lead the cast in a SHIELD movie. I’d watch that.

  10. Glad Agent Coulson got his own poster! He is the man.

  11. Good for him!

  12. coulson is awesome

  13. Coulson is Captain Marvel, or maybe a super-skrull. He’s too cool to be human.

    But Dannyboy is right,
    Fury is totally using Coulson as a S.H.I.E.L.D.!!!! That’s what Jules (pulp fiction) or Ordell (jackie brown) would do, not Fury.

  14. i just rewatched IM1 last night,

    and i remembered that i yelped with elation in theaters when coulson cooly says, “just call us S.H.I.E.L.D.”

    so badass haha

  15. Love Coulson. Just wish it was possible for this movie to be made about ten years ago. Sam Jackson LOOKS old. Plus he IS old. So I’m not sure how many more movies we can expect to see physical action from him. I’m loving it all though!

    • What’s age matter. Stallone is pushing seventy and he’s still doing action.

  16. Coulson is so unflappable that I’m starting to wonder if they finally managed to make an LMD with a wry sense of humor.

  17. We have a candidate to last year’s First Class’ posters lol

    • Not even close. XMFC posters were legends of crappiness.

  18. Better “dapper” than in a “diaper”!

      • Great banner posters…way too busy & cluttered to use as wallpapers though.

  19. love how nick fury is hiding behind him and he’s acting all nonchalant
