As the comics, so the movies.Johnny Novgorod said:Marvel wants to 1) forward a character's arc and 2) increase the stakes, but they refuse to lock themselves out of a character by killing him. So they end up undermining a perfectly functional death scene by resurrecting characters for TV shows and movie deals or simply because they want to keep their options open. They never commit, they always compromise. So why should I be moved by Coulson's death?
That is a pretty painful one. And they don't even really stop to mourn him or anything.Silk_Sk said:Excuse me. Where's Eddie from Jurassic Park: The Lost World? No side-character death pisses me off more than that one. Every time I watch the movie I feel like crying at that scene. In the minutes leading up to his death, he saved his friends' lives with a rope, winched his car to their truck to keep it from falling off a cliff, and kept his foot on the gas WHILE BEING ATTACKED BY TWO T-REXES. In the history of heroic movie deaths, this one gets overlooked far too much.

When I was in the theater, that silence was broken by a little girl stage whispering "Dad, can I have $3? They have sour patch straws!"Zontar said:Uh, his name is 'Agent'.EeviStev said:
On a serious note, it was weird being in the theater when that moment happened. There was no sound at all, no one said a dame thing. There wasn't even that obligatory "that guy" who said something funny or stupid or just made a loud, obscene sound.
Personally I think there was plans for a series post-Avengers right after the first weekend due to the box office return, and with fans demanding Coulson be brought back it seemed inevitable. It's not like Sci-fi series haven't turned bringing back characters due to fans demanding it isn't the norm.
