Agents of SHIELD – WonderCon 2016 Cast and Crew Interview

Thanks to Ivan for the heads up.

The first TV show of the Marvel Cinematic universe is still going strong at the end of its third season, and ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” rode a wave of fan support into WonderCon 2016 in Los Angeles.

Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb led the panel that assembled almots the entire core “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” cast including Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennett, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Henry Simmons, Luke Mitchell and Elizabeth Henstridge along with writer Jeff Bell.

The panel started out with mock somberness as Loeb ran a highlight reel of appearances of the recently disavowed agents Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Lance Hunter who have been written off to pursue their own spinoff called “Marvel’s Most Wanted” which is now in the pilot phase. “It’s them doing what they do best, which is banter and fight and banter,” said Bell. “I think it’s a nice companion piece to ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ It’s about a relationship. It’s about two people who keep secrets from each other.”

“It was a beautifully written episode that made me as fan want to see that show,” he said. “Suddenly you’re having to say goodbye to two disavowed agents. You’ve read the script…but suddenly you’re standing in a bar saying goodbye to two people who showed up on your team/in your life…you’re saying goodbye to these two people who you’ve come to care about…you’re a mess because our lives have become so much about the show. When I did check in on the interwebs this week, I saw more GIFs of people sobbing – ugly crying. The Brittany guy was very upset about this.”
