Agent Coulson is in 616 as of tomorrow's conclusion to Battle Scars #6.

Also to follow up Marcus Johnson is revealed as the son of Nick Fury, the article further implies as Rich has been talking about the last few months since Battle Scars started, that Marvel may intend him to replace his father. He's essentially the 616 version of Ultimate Fury.
Until we find out about what's going on with "Alpha" Nick Fury I'm reserving judgement.

My cursory opinion is this unnecessary mixing up of the "Nick's". It's not like the movies bring in a significant amount of new readers to comics. If it did and those readers stayed Marvel would have better justification for this. Instead it just screams of "playing in the moment", retconning for the sake of doing so by editorial fiat.
Meh, batman comic did the same thing in the 1990s for the Burton films for the most part.
