An Interview with the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The last time fans and viewers tuned to “MARVEL’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” for its winter and midseason finale, it surprised everyone as it launched and started to prepare MARVEL fans with something that will be a very big player in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe (MCU), which was also confirmed during MARVEL Studios announcement regarding its Phase Three. It turned out that the entire first half of the season was preparing everyone to be introduced to the Inhumans, as Skye (Chloe Bennett), who turned out to be Daisy Johnson, was transformed via Terragenesis in the chamber along with Raina (Ruth Negga). The Inhumans will be a major player in the MCU as they will have their own movie in 2018, as the 20th feature film of MARVEL.
Comic Book Resources News managed to call Clark Gregg, who portrays S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Phil Coulson, to give them an interview about the show, what will be happening next and about comic books in particular.
Clark Gregg revealed in the interview that the midseason finale will have a big impact on Phil Coulson, especially as it was him who led them to search for the underground city and temple, which caused Skye, whom he called a surrogate daughter and protégé, into something else. Aside from this, he will also be reeling from the fact that one member of the team will not be coming back home with them. Of course, he expects that there will be some trust issues, as some of his team members now have been with him since the beginning, while some of them are just new to the team.
However, Gregg, a comic book fan himself, is pretty excited about the fact that the writers and the entire MCU are entrusting them to launch the particular branch of the universe that deal with the Inhumans, who will be getting a movie all to themselves in 2018, as part of the Phase Three plan of the MCU.
According to Gregg, what is amazing about this is that it will allow the show to come into its own, and writers don’t have to tread water anymore, unlike in the first season when they tied it up to “Captain America: Winter Soldier.” He also mentioned that he still doesn’t know exactly what will happen, but it would be amazing if some things in the show will, if ever, cross into the movies.
He also mentioned that he did have to go back and read up again on the Inhumans, as he didn’t remember all of it, but knew some of it.
With regards to whether he would love to be back in the movies, he told Comic Book Resources News that he would love to inform the Avengers that he was still alive but mentioned that he was also happy where he was at the moment.
He also mentioned that the dynamics between Coulson and Bobbi Morse’s “Mockingbird” (Adrienne Palicki) are very interesting, and he hopes that the two will be able to work as a pair more in the future.
With regards to being a comic book fan, he enjoys the fact that Coulson has his own “MARVEL title” and told them that he actually has the variant covers all over his study.
