With Iron Man 3 heading towards the 1 billion mark at an incredible pace Marvel has proven once again how lucrative their franchise has become. Their universe keeps expanding and also covering new ground. This fall we will see a live action Marvel TV show centered around the secret organisation known as S.H.I.E.L.D.
The series will bring back Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) – whose death was the motivator for the Avengers to get their stuff together and fight. So in a way the TV-series will start what comics have done over the last decades: take death very lightly.
