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.
