Clark Gregg talks ‘Agents of SHIELD’ ‘Civil War’ and favorite Coulson moments

As a consequence of live tweeting about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Clark Gregg connected to fans and the media about the fourth season of Agents of SHIELD, the new Marvel film, Civil War and Pop Matters posted their interview, but with the tie-in to Inhumans, superhero registration.


“It seemed kind of obvious to me, just knowing the comics, that movie was going to end up with implementation of some version of the Sokovia Accords. You’d read between the lines, after having seen Ultron. I could see where it was going. It was fun to have that come into our portion of the world, in that it has immediate foreboding ramifications when it comes to, in our world, registering Inhumans. I liked the way they did it. I thought it was great and I thought having Coulson and Talbot once again on opposite sides of an issue, even though we’ve developed a certain amount of trust. I love when Adrian [Pasdar] shows up.”

Gregg talks about the loss of Coulson’s hand, the Civil War and Inhumans arcs, but then was asked about his favorite Coulson moment.

“There are so many at this point! I loved the early stuff with Stark (Robert Downey Jr.); I loved some of the interchanges with Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Certainly me geeking out over Cap [Captain America] (Chris Evans) and blasting Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Also, when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) showed up and gave me back my beautiful gun and made me the head of S.H.I.E.L.D.—even though S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s defunct.”

One interesting aspect of the show’s arc is that Brett Dalton’s Ward ends up completely shifting characters and Gregg addresses playing off of that with Pop Matters.

“Luckily, the way that I respond to it is the same way Coulson does, which is you’re not sure what to make of it. I loved the line they wrote [in “Paradise Lost”]: “I knew this would come back to haunt me; I just didn’t think it would actually come back to haunt me.” Dalton’s performance has been so amazing and nimble, and it’s continually evolving. I’m a little bit jealous of all the crazy places he’s got to go, but it’s really been a great gift to all of us to watch all the stuff he’s done with it. I think what he’s done with Hive this year has been remarkable.”


Season four of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air in September on ABC.
