This is crazy good news, I'm so excited! Could only make this better if it turns out to be a Runaways tv series. (I can dream big, kthx.)
Sounds great. Here's hoping that he develops a TV show that the network actually "gets" too. I always got the feeling that Dollhouse was far too much of a slow burn & high concept affair for FOX's execs. Never mind what they did to Firefly, the Whedon space epic that never was. Hopefully, Avengers has bought him some real power with the suits.
I vote for a Coulson & Hill SHIELD series. Could be Marvel's own X-Files. Yeah. I know he's dead. Bring him back as a LMD or something. He's too good of a character. Plus, Clark Gregg is just a great, underrated actor.More interesting is the news of the TV show...
This is very good news, the television series has so many possibilities am impatient already.
They must have driven a dump truck full of money up to Whedon's house.
The monster saved them all. And in their fear, they betrayed him. As they always have. As they always will.

1. Gregg isn't going to get any younger. Better to place it after the film instead of before.
2. Making him a LMD would be both fun AND morbid. Imagine having to work alongside a decoy of a co-worker who recently died. Your feelings would be mixed. On the one hand, it'd be comforting, as if he never died. On the other, you're working alongside a cheap knockoff. If we're looking at a LMD that's not perfectly human, it'd certainly allow Gregg to stretch his comedic chops some more.
That said, it's not even really necessary to go the LMD route. The way Coulson died makes for a really easy out. You basically just say that Fury was full of shit (In an effort to guilt trip the Avengers into getting the job done) and the paramedic team managed to stabilize him.
I'm happy for Whedon. Good to know that the series wont be anywhere near Fox.
