Default Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show? - Part 1

Maybe it's... just a huge oversimplification. Maybe Fury just ordered the EMT's into silence and had Coulson transported out in a hurry, where they were then able to start patching him up. Or it's the in-universe explanation everyone is given but as the show progresses we start getting hints that something more was going on. Or something.

But I just can't buy "holds his breath and remains perfectly still despite a sucking chest wound" and I don't think Whedon would write something like that and be satisfied with it either.

"When I was a fighting-man, the kettle-drums they beat,
The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back."
