I’m a bit sad to write this post. This is my last post as part of the whole Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (#AvengersEvent, #AgeOfUltron) and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (#AgentsOfSHIELD, #ABCTVEvent) trip that I took in April. The trip was an expense paid trip by Disney to press events, all opinions as always are 100% my own. The trip was very special because I had been hoping to get a chance to meet Clark Gregg who plays Phil Coulson, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.. I had been following along with him on Social Media for over a year now and I enjoy his humor and the way he connects with his fans. I also enjoyed seeing him in all of the Marvel movies that have come out from the moment he first appeared in Iron Man. At this event I got my chance.
When we arrived at the studio and then entered the set we were greeted to the site of the special aircraft that has been a part of this show from the beginning, The Bus. We saw Coulson’s car, Lola on the ramp and while looking around we spotted a Quinjet and more. The first cast members that we were able to interview were Clark Gregg and Ming Na Wen (Agent Melinda May). They were so funny and warm that it set the tone for the rest of the visit, which was an awesome visit. When we began the interview Clark put down his own recorder, “Just to keep it honest now, I’ve got my own version”. Ming Na then pulled out her own phone and took a photo of the group. She later tweeted the image and a nice message to us (Notice that you can see part of Lola in the background).

Both Clark and Ming-Na were funny and sweet and charming. They showed a real excitement for the show and interest in talking with us. You could see a nice working relationship with the two as well. They joked around for the first few minutes and kept the interview pretty loose. They asked us about seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron and were a little jealous that we had seen it first. Clark was funny and asked us if he was in the movie. Sadly, he was not, but he did have a role to play if you caught last Tuesday’s episode then you know about Theta Protocol. Here are some of the more interesting questions and answers from that interview. Continue reading Top Secret Meeting with #AgentsOfSHIELD Director Coulson at the #ABCTVEvent
