Clark Gregg Discusses Marvel's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
You've now seen the trailers and have been introduced to the characters of Joss Whedon's Agent's of S.H.I.E.L.D. It looks like it's going to be pretty damn fun TV series. The show's star Clark Gregg recently spoke to EW about the series, and how Agent Coulson fits into the epic mythology of the Marvel universe.
Agent Coulson represents the people who don’t have superpowers, the guys who actually can be killed — or at least seem to be and yet come back sometimes … Marvel has such a lock on how to do really incredibly visual effects and stunts that we’ve got stuff on our show that I just don’t think we’ve seen on TV before.
He then goes on to explain why we're going to love the show.
If you love The Avengers, if you love any of Joss Whedon’s work, you’re going to absolutely love the show. It’s about these people living in a super world dealing with being human. You see these superhero movies and you see the superheroes struggle but you don’t see how humans do in a world like that. That’s what will draw people in. It’s so human. And it’s so super and awesome still.
Gregg still won't confirm how Coulson will be coming back in the series, but he did say...
I thought they were pranking me a little bit because there was so much blood on the set of The Avengers, I kept waiting to see, are we going to shoot a version where [Loki] misses? And they didn’t, so I was really surprised to get that call and I wanted to make sure it didn’t do anything to undermine what we achieved there and when [writer-director Joss Whedon] explained the mystery and how they planned to deal with it, with Agent Coulson being around, I was very sold.
Regardless of how Coulson comes back, I'm sold on the series as well. To read up on all of our Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. news and watch the trailers, click here.
