No, it’s Not a Prequel: ABC President Confirms S.H.I.E.L.D. Takes Place After The Avengers
Ever since it was announced that Clark Gregg would be part of the cast of S.H.I.E.L.D., the question all of us who saw The Avengers had was how could that be? How could Agent Phil Coulson, who appeared to die in that film, return? While there are plenty of theories on that, another question was if the series would even have to “resurrect” Coulson at all, with some wondering if maybe it was a prequel, set before the events of Avengers.

Last night at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, I spoke to ABC president Paul Lee about S.H.I.E.L.D. and when I asked him how tied into the ongoing Marvel films the series would be, he replied, “There is no question that it is part of the Marvel Universe. In fact, the story takes place after the battle for New York.

Aww, no problem, guys I'm beyond excited for this!

Any thoughts on Coulson and how he "lives"? Some people are speculating that he'll only appear in flashbacks, but I doubt it. I think his death was faked after all.

Isn't he the main character? Why would he appear in flashbacks only? There is no way they would announce Coulson as a main character at a press conference and then use him that way only. I think that would be a disservice to the fans and to Clark, as he is Phil's biggest fan. If he was only going to be used in flashbacks, then they should have let that be a surprise for us to find out.

As to how Coulson lives, we only have Fury's word that he died. We "saw" him die, but who's to say that S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't have some kind of life serum? It will be fun speculating and then finding out what really happened!

He's not exactly the lead, Ming Na is top-billed. And you'd be surprised what executives do to make a buck... but I agree, Joss would never do that. And now that he's got more clout, I think he wouldn't let the suits get away with that either.

I think Coulson died but medics probably revived him off screen and Fury just took advantage of that. Maybe in TA2 the team will start off that the team finds out Fury lied to them and will initially refuse to team up again. It would be fun to see Tony get in Fury's face

I don't think he will only be appearing in flashbacks, that'll be cheating the fans cheered when they found out that SHIELD will be a sequel instead of a prequel because it means Coulson lives and yeah, they probably will just come up with excuses like they revived Coulson but they didn't tell the Avengers because they needed the push

Should I be worried that it's listed in IMDB as a "TV movie"?

I'm very curious about this one.

But since this is Joss show, I must remember not to ship any characters. Ever.

Looks like filming has started! I remember reading that Joss was just going to be directing the first episode. Have they decided who is going to be directing the rest of the show?
