Honestly, if you watch the sequence in The Avengers, the only person who "confirms" that Coulson died is Nick Fury, before the medics even touch him. We don't see his body, we don't see a funeral for the guy, which is weird given how much of a big deal they make about his death. On top of that, Fury's whole bit with the bloodstained cards is revealed to be a ruse, and when asked about it he says he needed a lie to bring them all together. Who says the lie stopped at the bloodstained cards?

Even before that, we see Coulson go to a top secret area, but we don't see him get the BFG, from there. Its possible he activated a LMD and used it to confront Loki, instead of going himself.
And Stark references Life Model Decoys at the beginning of the film, so its not impossible SHIELD had them
 
2012-10-13 08:28:53 PM
There could be like four different guys that all are kinda like Agent Coulson, and we could spend the first season trying to figure out which was the real Agent Coulson, but then the REAL real Agent Coulson would come back and kick all their asses. I think that would be cool.
 
2012-10-13 08:49:42 PM
But won't the Avengers feel stupid for getting all worked up and calling themselves the Avengers when they found out they had just been tricked by Nick Fury? And why was it called the Avengers Iniative way before they had anything to avenge?

That book became crap, when they decided on using the idea that multiple past lives is somehow how you get connected to the universe to become the Kwisatz Haderach, when no hints were made in the books that I read. Granted I can't find Chapterhouse anywhere.

Pretty much this. I noticed too how they went out of their way to avoid actually showing Coulson's death, instead having Fury telling of his death. A director as adept as Whedon doesn't do something as uncinematic as that without a reason.

As an aside, isn't there a version of Marvel continuity where the Vision is an updated version of the original Human Torch, who in the Golden Age was a contemporary of Captain America (and also Namor)? Wikipedia also asserts that there is a brief glimpse of the Torch during the Stark Expo sequence in the Captain America movie... so maybe all of that ties into the persistent rumors that Coulson is an android (and may even not know it himself)?

When Immortus defeated the Human Torch, he split the corpse into two chronal duplicates.

One was found and restored by the Mad Thinker then used to battle the Fantastic Four. Later, when the West Coast Avengers were investigating the Vision's origins, they revived it and the Human Torch became part of their team.

Ultron found the other and used it to attack Henry Pym and the Avengers, this version became the Vision.

Dude, you realize that them giving a single flying fark about Coulson in the first place was completely unbelievable to begin with, right? The only guy that knew him for more than a couple days was Stark (who is a sociopath), and Banner essentially hadn't even been introduced to the guy. Honestly, I'm still trying to figure out how most of the audience just accepted the guy as magically important somehow, usually even dim audiences call directors/writers on bullshiat that blatant. Anyhow, just roll with it.

You forget that Coulson was both Hawkeye and Black Widow's handler, Captain America is easy to guilt trip into things (hence the bloody cards), and no one at any point tells Banner because Banner doesn't care. Thor is also never told (only Captain America, Black Widow, and Iron Man are told, and only Captain America and Iron Man are shown the bloody cards).

And Iron Man is in it for the entire saving the world thing. Hard to be a douchebag playboy billionaire when the world is a cinder block ruled by Loki.

Captain America is a boyscout, 'Someone died who believed in you' is all he needs to get going. What they needed was a reason to get Tony to be willing to work with everyone, since Black Widow and Hawkeye would've just taken orders anyway. And since they make a big point of implying that he and Coulson and Pepper are friends, it had the impact necessary.

The big announcement was a little over the top though.

Coulson was quite obviously stabbed. I'm sure there was plenty of blood to go around from that.

Isn't the point of Coulson that every teenage geek and nerd in the audience wants to be him when they grow up? He's the one character in the entire franchise that they can plausibly identify with, and he's at the center of everything. Most (all?) of us think of ourselves as the hero of our own story, so it's easy for the audience to accept Coulson as the Avengers' inspiration. It's a "parking lot moment" -- the momentum of the film carries it along, and it's not until you are out in the parking lot afterwards that you go "hey... hold on...".

Shedim: And more importantly, where did he get the blood?

Nothing even says it was Coulson's blood. There were plenty of dead and wounded from the firefight.

That article was horribly written. I wanted to stab my eyes out at one point, but I was hoping to gain something from it but the headline misled me.

I hope he doesn't come back. While I was sad to see him die, it would be incredibly silly to bring him back at this point. It kinda screws up your cred. "Oh no, Iron Man died....I'm sure he'll be back, the agent came back after all." etc.
