Clark Gregg Once Again Expresses His Interest In Directing A MARVEL Movie
Clark Gregg has become one of the more prominent faces of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the time since he first appeared on the silver screen as Agent Coulson in Iron Man. Growing in importance with pretty much every Marvel flick released afterwards, Coulson‘s popularity among fans and the characters of the MU was used to unite The Avengers after his death at the hands of Loki. Then he came back to life in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and with the season finale took on a role of huge importance moving forward. While Gregg has his hands full with the upcoming second season of his show, he still finds time to direct. Having written and directed Choke and the recently released Trust Me, Gregg has been looking to expand on his time behind the camera. While he’s usually doing indie movies, the actor recently reiterated his desire to direct a Marvel movie in a recent interview with The Wrap.
Speaking with the site about Trust Me, the conversation quickly turned to Gregg‘s role in the Marvel universe. After talking about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and his desire to appear in Netflix‘s Daredevil or Iron Fist series, the actor and occasional director was asked if he’d like to take a shot at be involved with a Marvel movie but behind the camera. Of course, he said he’d love to:
I hope at some point, it’d be great, if there was the right property and the time was right to work with Marvel in that way, just because they’re so amazing and helping you utilize that part of the filmmaking process. They bring a lot of directors who have some or little experience using that technology and really help them along with it. I’ve seen the kind of pre-viz stuff they do. In fact, the day they were killing Coulson off with “The Avengers,” they knew I was upset, so Jeremy Latcham brought me over an animated version of The Hulk smashing Loki like a rag doll to kind of ease my pain. They let me know where that was going for him.
Gregg has said he learned a few tips and tricks from his days on the set of those movies, and he recently revealed that Marvel helped set him up with some of their visual effects people to design a creature used for the fake movie in Trust Me. Choke is a brilliant movie and Trust Me is getting rave reviews, so Marvel would be wise to at least bridge the subject of directing something with Gregg. Fans seem to be behind the idea of the actor standing behind the camera whether it be for an episode of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, an episode of one of the Netflix series, a One-Shot, or even a full-length movie. What do you think about Gregg‘s comments? What would you like to see him direct if the opportunity ever presented itself?
