Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Clark Gregg Talks Inhumans and Maybe Coming Back into the Marvel Film Universe. The midseason finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. dropped a huge bombshell in introducing the Inhumans and yet, there’s still more to come according to Clark Gregg.
Speaking to Comic Book Resources, Gregg discussed the early introduction of the Inhumans in the Marvel Cinematic Universe from the midseason finale and what it would mean for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. moving forward.
I’m excited by it. I think the Inhumans is a big, cool part of the Marvel universe, a great story. And we’ll set up something. We’ll get to explore it. I’m glad they’re entrusting us with it, and I think that they’ll take what they’re going to do with it, and it will connect. And yet, we’ll have the freedom to kind of make our show be our show. I think our show’s working better this year because it is what it is. What happens on our show has to work for our show, and if at some point in the future, because they always think of cool stuff, it becomes something that crosses over with the movie, fantastic.
Gregg also added about how the show has changed since it brought in the concept of superpowers.
Hard to say. I don’t know yet. We haven’t shot enough that I really have a good answer for that. What I like about it is, it’s not your typical origin story. All along S.H.I.E.L.D. has kind of been about protecting people from what they don’t know about, which often means people who are on the index — people who have powers because they’ve been kind of mutated or given powers by technology or Hydra or various alien artifacts. Inhumans represents a different chapter.
Gregg also mentioned about the possibility of seeing Agent Phil Coulson returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe down the road, which has been on fans’ minds since The Avengers. “It’s funny: the membrane between me and the character is so thin, I really want to explain to the Avengers, that I didn’t just lie to them. So I would really like it for that reason, yes. But I’m having an awfully good time where I am.”
