Clark Gregg Explains Phil Coulson Is A Rookie Agent In Captain Marvel

Actor Clark Gregg, who plays the fan-favorite Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Phil Coulson, will be seen making a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. Agent Coulson died in the hands of Loki in 2012’s The Avengers. But the TV series fans know that he was brought back to life. Now in Captain Marvel, fans will once again get a chance to see the fan-favorite Marvel character on the big screen.

During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gregg opened up about Captain Marvel and Agent Coulson’s part in the film. He said that he liked the idea of visiting Coulson’s past. However, he added that he had to do some extra work to get into the character.

There was something really special about going back to the early days when he was just kind of coming up the ranks,” the Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. actor said. “I had to take innocence workshops and go back to when he was a little less crusty and jaded!

Gregg revealed that Coulson is a rookie at S.H.I.E.L.D. when the movie starts.

He’s a relatively new S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who is obsessed with MC Hammer and dresses just like him, and it makes Director Fury so angry,” Gregg said. “The genie pants don’t really go with the Armani.”

Captain Marvel will feature the first meeting between Coulson and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, who, at this point, is a low-level bureaucrat within S.H.I.E.L.D. with both his eyes in the right condition.

Gregg described Coulson and Fury’s first meeting as a cute moment. However, he was assured that Jackson probably wouldn’t refer to their introduction to each other like that.

Notably, Marvel will be using special de-aging technology to make both Clark Gregg and Samuel L. Jackson look 25 years younger.

The actor joked that he is hoping the film’s creative team will do their work well to de-age his character in the film, same as how they de-age Robert Downey who is actually 71 years old.

Captain Marvel will arrive in theaters in March 2019.
