Marvel Studios may have opted out of Comic-Con 2015 for any number of reasons, though the dependable folks at Marvel TV will make sure our stay in San Diego isn’t without an Agents check-in. Not only will the Agents of SHIELD be out in full force for a Season 3 panel, they’ll be joined by spiritual predecessor Agent Carter.
Clark Gregg is tired of your s***.
The actor, whose role as Agent Coulston in various films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has led to him starring in Marvel's Agents of SHIELD series on ABC, is aware that many critics and fans are frustrated with the show so far, with some stating that they have all but given up on it, while others are forced to watch it for our amusement. Well, if you're one of the people who has quit on SHIELD., Gregg has a message for you. Speaking with The Salt Lake Tribune on the set of the show, Gregg had the following to say about fans, or Marvel "geeks," who have given up on the show due to the lack of appearances by more characters from the Marvel Universe: "Those aren’t geeks. Those are losers."
Agents of SHIELD made a big splash last week. Indeed, it was the biggest network drama debut in four years. This was no doubt in large part thanks to the good will generated by Marvel's blockbuster movies like Iron man and Thor. Unfortunately, despite the presence of Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon on the pilot, the episode could not match the confidence, charm or quality of the movies. We're now two episodes in and forced to ask; can a show set in a superhero universe work without superheroes?
Somewhere along the line, Agent Coulson became the breakout star of the Marvel film universe. Appearing in nearly every Marvel Studios film from the first Iron Man up to Avengers, Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, grew in popularity in a way that very few likely imagined. All this has culminated in Coulson being one of the stars of the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series from ABC. So while the character will be getting even more screen time on television this fall, one place you likely won't see him, according to director Joss Whedon, is in the newly titled Avengers: Age of Ultron film.
Coulson Lives! Today at New York Comic Con's Marvel Television panel, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb announced -- by way of a special video starring The Avengers director Joss Whedon and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige -- that Clark Gregg will be reprising his role as Agent Coulson in ABC's upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D.
