Clark Gregg was there for the inception of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in the original Iron Man and Iron Man 2 as agent Phil Coulson. Although he was largely absent from the films after The Avengers, he (and his character) then turned up on ABC’s MCU-based series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Of course, all of the extra work came as a big surprise to Gregg; when he was first recruited for “Iron Man,” he says there was no talk of an MCU … or Iron Man 2 … or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Wednesday nights on ABC.
