So… Clark Gregg tweeted out this idea a day ago.
I regret nothing.
EDIT: And since people asked, here’s a link to a shirt version too:
Well, it’s true.
Full size version is on my DeviantArt page
So while I was shut in for a couple days thanks to Hurricane Sandy… well… this happened.
Clicky the pic for the High Res version.
Agents of SHIELD, samurai style. Yes, I’m doing a whole series of these.
Alright, here’s my overly extensive write up of the NYCC Marvel TV panel, complete with rough drawings of what the video looked like. If you want to know what really happened, the exact order things went down in, and how certain quotes should have been taken, read on. But be warned, get some cocoa and sit somewhere comfy, because as usual, I wrote a thesis.
I’m starting to get a wee bit annoyed at all the articles about the Whedon/Feige video at Marvel TV panel at NYCC that 1) aren’t mentioning the context of Whedon’s comments and an extra comment he added in because of a thing that happened, 2) aren’t mentioning the gag at the very end of the video and 3) aren’t mentioning Whedon’s line from the very beginning of the video. Also, some articles are flat out misquoting the whole thing. Digital Spy, I’m looking square at you.
So… I’m kind of on the verge of storyboarding out the video so everyone can see a very rough idea of how the video looked and how the build up to it actually went down, because it would sure as hell be more accurate than anything I’ve read so far.
Would anyone be interested? Or is the video online somewhere I don’t know about? Because it’s a real shame if no one gets to see it.

But, guys. You guys. GUYS.
I know I’m late with this, but damnit Fury…
New Agent Coulson design, up on Redbubble.
The Avengers has absorbed my life in fangirlish ways I haven’t felt in years. If you’d told me a year ago I’d be up for seeing The Avengers a fifth time even with The Dark Knight Rises right around the corner, I’d have called you a crazy person, asked how you knew so much about me, and dialed the cops while I pepper sprayed you into oblivion. In other words, I dig the movie.
What’s made The Avengers stand out against other comic book movies before it is its ability to precision hit all the right chords when it comes to tropes that fans naturally gravitate to. You’ve got your super-powered boy band- erm, team, color coordinated down to their costumes. You’ve got your bad guy who’s dealing with big boy problems while still managing to be a snappy dresser. With the other movies leading the way, you’ve got each character coming in preloaded with their own distinct backstories, so from the first frame on, it’s GO time. The movie knows what it is and it knows what story it’s going to tell. Not a lot of other summer movies can claim that (The Amazing Spider-man, I’m looking at you). It’s also one of the most unabashedly un-cynical things out there, something much needed in a sea of angsty, downer stories.
Though as much as I adore it, The Avengers isn’t a perfect movie. Some characters don’t get to do much (here’s hoping in Iron Man 3 Maria Hill will be allowed to do more than stand really close to Fury!) and its score only seems to give a shit during the last hour.
But there’s one major sticking point that keeps gnawing at me: Agent Phil Coulson, specifically his “death”.
