The first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is in the books, but that doesn’t mean Marvel’s flagship TV property didn’t leave a few unanswered questions. So what does Agent Coulson himself want answered — and might he show up on those new Netflix shows?

Clark Gregg, who brought everyone’s favorite agent back to life in S.H.I.E.L.D., was the subject of a central mystery throughout the first season surrounding his resurrection. We got some answers, but there’s still the matter of that big blue alien and the WTF-ery surrounding him. Here’s what Gregg told Movie Pilot about those dangling threads:

“I don’t think it’s fully played out, but what it turned out to be and all the different layers, I was really excited about that. This mysterious blue gentleman who seems to have brought me back to life, I love the whole idea that the biggest mystery for Coulson in season one is to find out who’s been lying to him and why about how he was really brought back to life, and that the version he was told is completely untrue. The crisis of faith he has with S.H.I.E.L.D. and Director Fury who only in the very last episode of this season do we find out why he’s been deceived in a way that restores a lot of his faith in what he’s been doing.”

Though Gregg will be pretty busy rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D. and trying to take out the remnants of HYDRA next season, he said he’s still hoping Marvel gives him a chance to pop up in the upcoming Netflix miniseries that’ll focus on heroes like Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist:

“I’d be really disappointed if I don’t get to show up in New York for Daredevil, or Iron Fist was a huge favorite of mind in comic books as a kid. I’ve had more than my share so I shouldn’t be greedy but it would be a huge geek out moment for me if I got to meet Daniel Rand.”

Considering the fact that he’s tasked with getting S.H.I.E.L.D. back together, it makes enough sense that Coulson might catch wind of some new heroes kicking butt and taking names in NYC. Here’s hoping, because Gregg didn’t sound too keen on his odds to pop up in Avengers: Age of Ultron, noting, “I don’t think so,” when asked about Joss Whedon’s upcoming sequel. 

What do you think, should Coulson cameo in the Netflix shows? What questions do you want answered next season on S.H.I.E.L.D.?
