The Fangirl Life: Favorite Phil Coulson Moments

Phil Coulson is one of my favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agents both in MCU and in the spin-off TV show of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” The Captain America fanboy is played by Clark Gregg.

Marvel is notorious for its credit scenes, sometimes having two in the credits instead of just one. Each reveals a piece of a plot to a future movie of some kind which leaves the fans to guess and hypothesize as to what it could mean. In some, at least Thor, prior to The Avengers, Coulson was a minor character with a great impact. In The Avengers, he gained importance that eventually led to heartbreak.

You can see the reference to the events of Thor, Coulson’s contrast to Loki’s devious character. I still fangirl every time I watch this scene full of so many emotions. And the line “So that’s what it does,” gets me every single time. This scene is a prime example of Coulson’s selfless and amazing character in the Cinematic Universe.

In the remaining scenes of the movie, you can see the impact his death has on the Avengers and what it leads them to inevitably do.

Coulson just makes me laugh at the best times. One of my favorites is a scene from the first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Coulson just blows Grant Ward out of the water with what he says at the end of the clip. I have to refrain myself from bursting out in laughter that would disturb those around me.
