4 Best Theories On How Coulson Is Still Alive
#4 The Scarlet Witch Resurrection
In The Avengers script by Joss Whedon, Tony Stark makes a reference to Coulson evidently dating somebody. The best way to introduce a new character for the next Avengers would be to have Coulson's mystery lady be The Scarlet Witch. She has magical powers, it would make sense that she would want to bring back her lover, and she has been known for raising the dead in the Marvel Comics. Also it's worth mentioning that in theAgents of SHIELD pilot, they use the word "magical" references to Tahiti. If you recall, Coulson is said to have been spending his time in Tahiti.
Could Coulson have been reanimated by the Scarlet Witch? It would explain why the other agents seem to be hiding something from Coulson. Are they trying to keep him from freaking out over the fact that he died and his girlfriend has magical powers that brought him back from the dead? This could be very interesting...
