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

One very special part of our visit to the set of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a tour of the costume department by Costume Designer, Ann Foley. I attended an expense paid trip by Disney to press events for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (#ABCTVEvent, #AgentsofSHIELD), all opinions as always are 100% my own.

Ann Foley does some excellent work outfitting the cast of the show in some great costumes. She designed costumes like May’s silver dress, Mockingbird’s uniform and Deathlok’s new costume. I like that last one the best because it meant the return of J. August Richards to the show. I was always a fan of him on Angel and so glad to see him back on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We didn’t get to see that particular costume in person but the other two that I mentioned were on display on mannequins. I also liked this part of the visit because I got to record the whole interview on my recorder and so I had to stick close to Ann as she showed us around.

Right off the bat Ann welcomed us into the costume department and she was so sweet. I had been following her on twitter for a couple of days because J. August Richards had tweeted about the newly redesigned costume. I now follow her on Instagram and she posts some great content with people from the show. Some great behind the scenes insight for eager fans like me. Ann showed us through all the racks and racks of costumes for the cast. Tons of suits for Coulson and much more. I wish that we could have taken some photos in this part of the tour. I do have some good questions and answers that we received on the tour. to share with you below.
