Clark Gregg Talks AGENTS OF SHIELD Season 2; Says It's 'Darker'
Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) recently sat down with Collider to promote his new film Trust Me, and he had a few things to say about the second season of Marvel's Agents of Shield, revealing some interesting information. Check it out!
While on a press tour for his new film, Clark Gregg who plays Agent Coulson, briefly talked about the second season of Marvel's Agents of Shield, “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.” He continued on talking about the darker tone that the next season will inherit as well as the new time slot and Agent Carter, “I thought there were so many things stacked against us last year,” said Gregg, “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.” What do you guys think?
