Though Agent Phil Coulson is alive and well in “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,” it seems doubtful that he would greet Loki with a handshake if he saw him again after the disgraced Asgardian killed him in “The Avengers.” Fortunately the two men who play those characters are buds in real life, and even took to social media to prove that there are no hard feelings.
Clark Gregg attended the “Thor: The Dark World” premiere in Los Angeles, and there he bumped into Tom Hiddleston. The pair posed for an adorable picture together that Gregg then posted to his Instagram page.
“We worked it out,” Gregg writes as the caption.
The subject of Coulson’s death hasn’t been dealt with in the Marvel movies after “The Avengers,” but it has been a recurring discussion on “Agents of SHIELD.” That discussion reached a peak in the Nov. 5 episode “FZZT” when Coulson finally admitted that he doesn’t feel normal following his resurrection and is a changed man. Hopefully he and Loki will come face-to-face again on the big screen soon so Loki can see just how much of an impact he had on Phil Coulson.
“Thor: The Dark World” is due in theaters on Nov. 8. “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” airs Tuesdays on ABC at 8 p.m.
