Clark Gregg has been a staple at MCU since he first appeared as Agent Phil Coulson in the 2008 Iron Man. Of course, since Coulson died on screen in Avengers in 2012, the Mighty Heroes of the Earth didn’t know he revived and now lead the SHIELD. In a recent interview with Greg, he disclosed what team members he wants to reunite with again.
“Well, I mean, as you know, the crush on Cap never dies. But I always, I mean, I felt that same sadness, just because really, the whole thing started, and I think the reason Coulson became what Coulson was really, was about Robert and those scenes together and the banter,” Gregg said. “He makes you that much better and brings out so much more than you might normally see in a scene. The way that he took those scenes and that character on brought me to life, in a way, so that I didn’t get to have that.”
Gregg then goes on to share his figment of how Coulson could have reunited with the Mighty Mighty Avengers. “I was like, ‘Come on, you haven’t done a one-shot.’ Why couldn’t there be a really cool one-shot where they’re on a mission, we’re on a mission… ‘Oops!’ You know?”
Gregg went on to say at what specific moment he realized Coulson’s importance within the franchise.
“No, it was so gradual,” he revealed. “It was such a series of moments, from being kind of pulled aside on Iron Man one and being told that they were adding more scenes and kind of making it clear that this guy was really a little bit more intimidating and in possession of more secrets than he’s masquerading as at the beginning. And then, being added to Iron Man 2, I thought, ‘Well, that’s cool. That’s cool; he has another scene.'”
Gregg added, “I’ve told this story… Being told to mention that I’m leaving Tony Stark, supervising him, and I will not be the one who tases him and watch his Supernanny, because I’m going to New Mexico. And saying, ‘Why am I saying that? What’s in New Mexico?’ In fact, it was Louis D’Esposito saying, ‘Oh, you, you’re going to New Mexico. You find Thor’s hammer.'”
