Marvel released the first official trailer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season six and the return of Phil Coulson has fans theorizing that the supposedly deceased hero could actually be a Skrull.
After revealing his brief time as Ghost Rider burned through the Kree DNA that healed the fatal wound he sustained in Avengers, Phil Coulson left S.H.I.E.L.D. to spend the remainder of his life in Tahiti at the end of the fifth season. While most of the trailer for the upcoming sixth season explored how the team was coping with the loss of their beloved leader, the final moments revealed Phil Coulson returning with no memory of what S.H.I.E.L.D. was, leading to fan speculation on how the former director could still be alive.
One theory suggests the real Coulson is dead and that the character featured at the end of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. trailer is a Skrull, the shape-shifting alien villains who will make their first MCU appearance in Captain Marvel. However, some fans are going as far as to suggest that the Phil Coulson we’ve known for years is a Skrull and the character featured in the trailer is the real one, who has been gone since the events of Captain Marvel due to unknown circumstances.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
