WATCH: Clark Gregg Teases New Non-Coulson Role on ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’

After that intriguing, cryptic season six teaser trailer that Marvel released at the end of last month, the question on everyone’s mind was: is that really Coulson at the end? How is he still alive, if so? Well, the man himself has answered those questions – leaving us with a whole set of new ones in the process, of course.

Clark Gregg sat down at the Marvel LA studio to talk about his new role on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the upcoming season, and although the video of his chat is short, it’s revealing. Watch it here:

So, bottom line: seems that Coulson is dead, for real this time. (*sniff*) But Clark Gregg is still on the show, as some mysterious non-Coulson character who happens to look like the beloved SHIELD director for some reason. Hmm.

The new season still doesn’t have an exact release date, but we’ll all be waiting for this summer on ABC to see how Agents of SHIELD dives into this latest mystery – among many others!
