If you're wondering why the comic book stores are empty tonight, it's because fans across the nation will be tuned in to watch the series premiere of "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." The comic studio is trying their lucky with a weekly format, taking the beloved Agent Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, and making him the center of the action. But one the sticking point for many will be: didn't he die in "The Avengers"? Wasn't that the crucial motivation in getting the team to work together to defeat Loki? While the answer to both those questions is "yes," it's now moot as the character lives, but you won't believe how it's being explained away.

As word of a brand new, "Harry Potter"-inspired film series dropped this morning, it's reminder that studios are continuing to seek ways to build on existing properties, because you make your money investing in stuff people already know, instead of trying to launch something new. And so we come to "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." which sees the Marvel-verse expanding on the small screen, and with the show to kick off in a just a couple weeks, some new peeks have arrived.

There's been a lot of speculation as to how Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) would be brought back for the new ABC series set within the Marvel Universe, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." The series, which is being spearheaded by "Avengers" director Joss Whedon, but has yet to get an official green light from the network, would revive the Coulson character, last seen with a giant fucking spear through his chest in "The Avengers," and focus on the super-spy organization he works for. Well, details on how he will be resurrected have been revealed (supposedly) and a spoiler warning should be issued, along with a "prepared to be incredibly disappointed" warning.

It takes some audacity to open your film with an homage to "Sunset Boulevard," but that doesn't seem to worry Clark Gregg. A journeyman actor valued by filmmakers like David Mamet, Gregg has had a dynamic few years, making his directorial debut with Chuck Palahniuk adaptation "Choke" and an attention-getting role in "The Avengers." Bold as all that may be, he has used this clout to front "Trust Me" as both an actor and director, and you wonder if this reliable screen vet isn't stretching himself a bit thin at this point.

We suppose it was inevitable. No other medium loves to resurrect its characters as much as the comic. While killing characters makes for great drama, the nature of the soap-opera-esque form and the kowtowing to fans generally means if anyone "dies," sit tight, they're coming back to life in the near-future once the sturm-und-drang and consequences of a death have been throughly milked.

Since making his directorial debut with the Chuck Palahniuk adaptation “Choke” in 2008, Clark Gregg has appeared in some of the most successful films of the past four years. But now that his relationship with Marvel is seemingly at an end -- provided the studio doesn’t just retcon his death in "The Avengers" -- the character actor is gearing up to return behind the camera with “Trust Me.”
