Transcript for Clark Gregg Returns From the Dead in Marvel's 'Agents of Shield'
It's "marvel agent of s.H.I.E.L.D." Day today. The hot, new show premieres tonight. We may have its star. Could it be clark gregg? The trademark red car. That's how you arrive. There's an entrance. That's a great car. There's so many fans of the comic book and the movie, "the aveng avengers." Eagerly awaiting their favorite character. And here he comes now. A lot of fans. Great reviews. Walking right in right now. How are you? Please. What a coincidence. Clark gregg joining us. Might be the most popular guy on television without seeing a show. Should we stop right now? Exactly. This is good. I feel good. "Marvel agents of s.H.I. S.H.I.E.L.D." Including, it's the third-highest-grossing film of all-time. We did see you perish in said film. However, you're back from the dead. Imagine that. Will that be addressed? When that many people have seen a film, it's not something you can -- oh, did you notice that? The last time people saw agent phil coulson, was not in very good shape. Impaled by a guardian scepter. No one likes that. And it ended the role of this really fun character. And I got a phone call saying, we think you might not be that dead. And in on the twitter, coulson lives became a movement. The fans, to my great shock, were really upset when agent coulson was stopped by that rascal, loki. And they started a movement. Coulson lives. It was spray painted and in the danube in africa. I can't believe I got to meet the superheros. Never mind the actors who played them. And have it turn into this. The red corvette driving me up to "gma." I have to laugh a little. "Agents of s.H.I.E.L.D." Tell us about the show. Who are superheroes? Who are not superheros? Are we collecting superheros? That's a good idea. I'm going to pitch that. It's about the people that agent coulson came to represent in those movies. The agents of s.H.I.E.L.D., Who are tasked with dealing with superheros when they show up. It's a world after "the aveng avengers," where we know about this crazy billionaire in a flying suit, to aliens innovating through time portals. These two wacky brothers. And it's a world where a lot of people want those powers. And some of them are not so nice. Want to take a quick look at it. It is marvel's "agents of s.H.I.E.L.D." I know that agent coulson was killed in action, before the battle of new york. You have a full report? Welcome to level seven. Sorry. That corner was really dark. And I couldn't help myself. I think there's a bulb out. The character seems to be very aware of -- there's almost a tongue and cheek as aliens are defending us. Why do you think this character resonates so? There's so many characters in this -- in the world of marvel superheros that have the superpowers. And I think there's something to the character there who doesn't have them, that josh whedon grasps so magnificently. He has to front. Because the superheros are the divas. Or our stage manager. I've seen him in action. I don't want to claim those kind of powers. So, he is somebody that the fans connected with because he's them. Josh really grabbed that and made him a fan boy. Agent coulson's been to comic-cons. He has his cards. And there's something heroic about him. He does the job and has seen stuff that would turn your hair white. But things that people really nailed it, it's funny. It's tongue in cheek. You're going to have people flying around, somebody has to make fun of them. If you're being hash tagged on the danube, you can have your own action figure. Marvel "agents of s.H.I.E.L.D." Here on abc. Thanks for coming. Samuel j. Champion, speaking of superheros.
