^Like I keep saying, people in real life can potentially survive that kind of impalement injury with prompt medical attention, and the medics were on the scene pretty promptly. I don't think there needs to be any more complicated explanation than "Fury lied."

Nope. Just like how people don't refer to Tron as Disney's Tron.
I can top that -- "Dolph Lundgren is The Killing Machine."

And no, it's not the same thing as Chuck Norris is "Walker, Texas Ranger." The title is actually "Dolph Lundgren is the Killing Machine."

^^ That's pretty funny, I suspect that was an unintentional mistake, looking at the DVD cover I think that was just for the promotional aspect not that it was meant to be the title but that is indeed what it's titled at MPAA.org.

If you look at the back cover the credits show: "Dolph Lundgren is The Killing Machine" Dolph Lundgren Stefanie von Pfetten Samantha Ferris

While it's of course possible to explain it away like that, I think this would somewhat diminish the emotional impact of Coulson's death in the movie. That's why I suspect Whedon et al. have something a little more complicated in mind.

I don't know. Coulson's death was studio-mandated, so it's possible Whedon might just bring him back with as little explanation possible (like "Fury lied") just as a middle finger to the studio.

That's very likely. If there's one thing Whedon is known for, it's that he doesn't like it when fan favorite characters are killed.

Except we already knew in the movie that Fury used deceit about Coulson's death (faking the blood on the cards) to motivate the heroes to get over their differences. That was the point of Coulson's "last words" -- that they needed something to avenge, something to care about that would get them past their egos and forge them as a team.

Heck, the whole thing looked so faked to me that throughout the rest of the movie I was expecting Coulson to turn up alive in the final or post-credits scene. Between Coulson's last line and the fact that we didn't see him die, just heard Fury claim he was dead over the radio, it felt like they were setting the audience up for the surprise reveal that he was alive after all. (And that Whedon was playing with audience expectations -- we think of him as the guy who kills off beloved characters, so he'd make us think he'd done it again and then spring the surprise twist on us.) So his revival in the series just seems to me like the natural extension of what's already blatantly hinted at in the movie itself.

Not sure if serious.
