Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast and creators talk Season Two

Following the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the conclusion of season 1’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the S.H.I.E.L.D. team has changed. Not only have they lost almost all of their cool toys, but the damage has caused the agents to change how they move. Now Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. has taken it upon himself to do what is deemed necessary for the greater good.

Season 2 started off with two losses to the team as Hydra tries to acquire a powerful obelisk with mysterious powers. The episode creates a huge interest in what’s coming this season for the agents and how will they adapt to fighting remnants of Hydra and dealing with the government who is trying to stop them.

After the premiere of the first episode, many members of the press got a chance to meet with the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and talk about the upcoming season.

When asked on how the team behind the series has changed for this season:

“Last season, there was a consistent cry from our viewers that there were a lot of repeats… we started talking about what is the best thing we could do,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “There is going to be our fall-winter season, then we’re going to take a break to work on a little show called ‘Agent Carter’…then we’ll be back and we’ll run all the way through. The idea is trying to give you as much Marvel as we can at 9 o’clock on Tuesdays on ABC.”

It will consist of 22 episodes for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and 8 episodes for Agent Carter.

What does the cast think about their characters, and how have they grown from season 1?

One member of the pressed asked if season 2 will contain any possible setup for other Marvel franchises like Netflix shows or even the movies. Jeph Loeb replied with, “It is all connected. We have an ongoing relationship not only with our other shows, but with Kevin Feige who runs the studio. We are talking all the time, about what we can [do to] make it work. We never want to do it just to do it, we always want to do it in a way that moves things forward.”

Towards the end I was able to talk to Clark Gregg about his favorite comics, and he told me he loved Iron Man, Warlock and Iron Fist comics. The kid in him loved the fact he could be part of the Marvel Universe as well as being in the Iron Man, Thor and Avengers films.

I asked him if he would also love to be part of the Iron Fist Netflix series if given the chance, and even something to do with Adam Warlock if we see him in the future. He smiled and said he would love to.

What were your thoughts on the new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs every Tuesday at 9pm P.S.T on ABC.
