Marvel Head of Television Jeph Loeb arrived to a packed room at New York Comic Con on Friday in order to discuss the latest Marvel TV updates, including their ABC shows “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “Agent Carter.”
Loeb greeted the crowed, who responded with thunderous applause. He asked the crowd to cheer for each respective show, which resulted in a chant of “Carter! Carter!”
The applause grew even louder as soon as Clark Gregg, who plays Director Phil Coulson in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” stepped onto the stage. The chant of “Carter” switched quickly to “Coulson! Coulson!”
Gregg stepped aside so Loeb could show some footage from “Agent Carter.” As Gregg exited, Loeb thanked the fans for helping the show reach its 50th episode.
“If you don’t do what you do… then we don’t get to make more shows. It’s because of that we get such incredible response not just from this, but ‘Agent Carter,'” Loeb said. “I cannot thank [the behind-the-scenes team and producers] or you enough.”
“‘Agent Carter’ returns this year and we couldn’t be happier. Two of our most popular characters are Peggy Carter and Edward Jarvis,” he continued. “They are currently filming in Los Angeles.”
Following a short clip from Hayley Atwell and James D’Arcy on the set of “Agent Carter” season two, Loeb announced Dominic Cooper and Bridgit Regan will return for the the show. He also announced more cast members to join the show: Wynn Evrett as Whitney Frost, Reggie Austin as Dr. Jason Wilkes , Currie Graham as Chad Chatwin and Lotte Verbeek as Ann Jarvis, Jarvis’ wife.
When asked how he reacted to hearing about the Inhumans entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Gregg responded, “My first question was: ‘Am I Black Bolt?'”
Another question asked who Gregg and Loeb would consider to be an interesting character to become Inhuman. Gregg deferred to Loeb. “I think that you need to stay tuned,” Loeb said carefully. “We’re going to be exploring Inhumanity in the way we look at Inhumans and man’s way of dealing with those who are different. We don’t know yet who or what anyone of our team up. That’s an exciting thing for you to be able to catch as we go through the season.”
“We’d like to talk to some mutants, but they are in a terrifying realm,” Gregg said when asked whether mutants appeared on “S.H.I.E.L.D.” “They live in a frightening realm called ‘The Copyright Zone.’ Someday we will all live in harmony.”
When a fan asked if she could see more “S.H.I.E.L.D.” footage, Gregg whispered conspiratorially in Loeb’s ear. Shortly after, Loeb ran the third episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” season three.
