Clark Gregg on when 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' answers why Coulson lives

brightcove.createExperiences(); One of the biggest surprises after Marvel Studios announced it would be creating a "S.H.I.E.L.D." television show for ABC was the fact that Clark Gregg's character Agent Phil Coulson would have a central role in it. Considering Joss Whedon killed Coulson off in "The Avengers," there were some big storytelling hurdles that need to be jumped to explain why Coulson is still alive in the post-"Avengers" chronology of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." The full trailer for the show that was revealed at ABC's Upfronts didn't give more of an explanation for Coulson's continued life than the fact that information is relegated to S.H.I.E.L.D. agents with access to "Level 7." During a recent conversation with Zap2it, Gregg confirmed that even he isn't fully sure how Coulson managed to come back from the grave. "He's an android. I'm lying, I'm lying! He's the Vision. He's a Life Model Decoy," Gregg jokes, referencing fan-favorite "Coulson lives"...
