Phil Coulson is back! Clark Gregg's scene-stealing S.H.I.E.L.D. agent headlines a forthcoming TV show called Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for Walt Disney's (NYSE: DIS ) ABC television network. Plans have been in the works since the House of Mouse signed creator Joss Whedon to a long-term contract that includes directing 2015's Avengers 2.
Coulson is an important character. He first appeared in Iron Man and remained a constant through several of the Marvel Studios films, right up until his on-screen death in Marvel's The Avengers. Fans have been mourning him ever since, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova in the following interview with the Fool's Erin Miller.
For investors, the key is that Disney is taking the Rule Breaking step of creating a universal continuity that stretches from comic books to films to television. It's an advantage that Sony (NYSE: SNE ) and News Corp. (NASDAQ: FOXA ) , despite their interests in Marvel properties Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four, can't touch. Look to buy shares of Disney stock on weakness, Tim says.
