Clark Gregg previews ‘Agents of SHIELD’ season 2, which is darker, set around ‘Agent Carter’

While promoting his new movie Trust Me, which he wrote, directed, and stars in, Clark Gregg spoke to Collider about how Blade Runner inspired him, his experiences with child actors, and his new notoriety in the business thanks to Marvel.

First up was ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “It’s going to be lo-fi. You’re going back to basics. You’ve got to rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. from the ground up in a much more dangerous world where your group is outlawed. So it feels like the early, Sean Connery James Bond with the brass knuckles and not afraid to knock somebody off.”

Gregg mentioned that the new season won’t have some of the same problems that the first one faced such as extended hiatuses and the solution is partially thanks to the new series Agent Carter.

“I thought there were so many things stacked against us last year and one of them was where the ABC television schedule would put us on for three episodes and then take us down for four weeks. Nobody could get a momentum going and when the show started to be on consistently and having story that carried over in an episodic way, that’s when things started to click. So the great thing about the announcement was, A., we’re moving to nine, where it can be a little darker, like I think Marvel needs to be. Then they’re going to show, I believe it’s ten [‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ episodes], eight of [‘Agent Carter’], then twelve [more ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’]… For the most part, this is straight runs of our show, which is when I think it really works.”

Also set in 2015 will be the Netflix series which begins with Daredevil. The new shows are set in the same universe as SHIELD.

“There will be some interconnectivity – much like the movies,” Marvel Entertainment’s CCO Joe Quesada revealed on Kevin Smith’s Fatman on Batman podcast.

“They will exist within the cinematic universe again, so this is all the same world as SHIELD and The Avengers.”

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesday nights on ABC.
