After Friday night's season (not series) finale of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvelites won't have to wait until next summer to get their Agent Phil Coulson fix. Actor Clark Gregg is returning to the Marvel Cinematic big screen Universe in spring 2019's Captain Marvel.
Gregg will apparently join Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) in Marvel Studios' vaunted de-aging machine, as both actors will be playing younger version of themselves in the Brie Larson-starrer set in the 1990s.
Gregg tells Entertainment Weekly Coulson will have just joined S.H.I.E.L.D. in the film.
“He’s a bit of a new guy in S.H.I.E.L.D.” Gregg revealed. “He’s a lot younger. It’s the earliest we will have seen him, so when he says, ‘Mr. Stark, this isn’t my first rodeo’ in Iron Man, this is maybe the rodeo he’s talking about.”
Gregg also tells the news oulet that Larson's Captain Marvel is maybe the most powerful character in the MCU (move over Thor and the Hulk) besides the now-Infinity Gauntlet-powered Thanos.
The fan-favorite actor also seemed to tease that the 1990's setting will allow Marvel to produce a soundtrack that could rival the more 60s-80s' Guardians of the Galaxy playlists.
Captain Marvel is scheduled for a March 6, 2019 release.
