More From Clark Gregg On His Role As 'Agent Coulson' In THE AVENGERS
Talking to SFX Magazine, Clark Gregg discusses Agent Coulson's role in the movie, his relationship with Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, seeing The Avengers assemble on set and much more.
On Seeing The Avengers "Assemble" On The Set Of The Movie:
"It's a little hard to believe, coming from a supporting role that they kept beefing up and adding to new movies, that I would actually walk into that room I walked into and see that collection of people in their various versions or incredibly worked up neoprene. When I walked in the first thing I did was go, "Oh my god! Look at all these actors in costumes!" But then you look at them a little closer and you go, "I just walked into a room with Captain America, Tony Stark...oh my god!" And then you go, "That's Jeremy Renner and Robert Downey Jr!" Then all of a sudden Sam [Jackson] comes in and gives me a look and I'm like, "There's som big problems we've got to take care of so let's go do it!"
On What Brings Together The Heroes As A Team:
"The thing about The Avengers that I think is clear from the trailers is that they've spent a lifetime preparing for a moment like this. Whatever is coming down the pike, everyone is taking care of business to the best of their abilities. It may cause some tensions but they're going to hit it head on."
On Finding Out That He Had A Much Larger Part In The Movie:
"I had to pinch myself because I'm not that jaded. I got to show up and put on the Coulson suit and I've got enough lines that I have a trailer, plus I get to do this amazing script by Joss Whedon. I don't know how I got to be a part of it, I just feel very lucky about it. When you look at the team it's made out of rock stars, divas, and giant muscles with superpowers so somebody has the job backstage at Lollapalooza to make them all play in the same concert and super band - and that's what Agent Coulson does."
