Clark Gregg talks Ghost Rider in ‘Agents of SHIELD’ season 4, changes to Coulson

While the Ghost Rider storyline appears to be moving to the background for the second half of Agents of SHIELD’s fourth season, the ramifications will certainly be felt. Star Clark Gregg even addressed how the character/creature affected Coulson.

“There’s a great supercut of all the looks on Coulson’s face when he thinks he’s seen everything, and then he sees the guy with the flaming skull, and then he sees the Destroyer in Thor, and then he sees the ghost people,” Gregg said in an interview with Collider.

“I don’t think he was prepared for the magical part of this world. You can’t do this job and not really keep the focus on what’s scientifically provable. There’s always something that pushes past it, but Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) usually find a way to explain, on some level, even an expanded version of how science makes sense. I love, so much, that they’ve created this guy that seemed like the most obvious, terrifying, satanic villain, who turned out to be yet another complex person seeking redemption that ends up helping us.”

Gregg shifted a bit, offering praise for the Rider actor.

“On a selfish level, it’s such a great breath of fresh air, what that character and Gabriel Luna brought to our show. With Season 4, you’re like, ‘Okay, what can we do now?’ And then, all of a sudden, you’ve got one of the coolest things. And I was really nervous about it because that’s big time visual effects. To pull it off in a way that feels like there’s a person there is really hard, and I didn’t know how even Mark Kolpack was going to do that on a weekly TV budget basis. Our whole post-production team really deserve a lot of props for that.”

The Agents of SHIELD midseason premiere episode will be titled “Broken Promises” and starts the LMD story arc – check out the synopsis below.

“Though Coulson and May are growing closer, Coulson remains unaware of the dark secret May is hiding beneath the surface. Meanwhile, Aida is unrelenting in her search for the Darkhold.”
