These days, we mostly know Clark Gregg as the unflappable Agent Coulson from The Avengers and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But during his downtime from battling superpowered baddies, he’s also been building up an interesting career as a filmmaker. He made his directing debut in 2008 with Choke, and today we have a trailer for his sophomore effort Trust Me.
The dark comedy stars Gregg as a former child actor who’s now an agent for child actors. He thinks he’s found the next big thing in 13-year-old Lydia (Saxon Sharbino) — and must keep his professional rival (Sam Rockwell) and her overprotective dad (Paul Sparks) don’t get in their way. Hit the jump to watch the first full Trust Me trailer.

Mystery always surrounds Agent Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but one of the character’s unseen aspects is about to be revealed. During Phase One of the MCU, Coulson (played by Clark Gregg) regularly discussed a love interest in conversations with Pepper Potts and Tony Stark. They all referred to her as “The Cellist.” Now, Whedonverse alum Amy Acker has been cast as that character; she’ll appear in an upcoming episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe now looks pretty clear. The Iron Man, Thor and Captain America sequels will lead directly into Avengers: Age of Ultron, while Guardians of the Galaxy will feature Thanos and look ahead to Phase Three.
One offshoot that’s a little less clear is on television. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. takes place in the same universe as the films. We know this because the plot of the show features Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) returning from the dead to lead members of S.H.I.E.L.D. in investigating other superheroes. Coulson was a major part of Phase One and The Avengers but, according to Joss Whedon, that probably won’t be the case this time around. Read his quote below. Read More »

One of the most anticipated television panels on Friday was Marvel’s new live-action television show The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which was inconveniently programed in the convention center’s smaller hall Ballroom 20. The entire creative team and most of the cast were in San Diego for the panel.
The first audience question was the elephant in the room: Will we see any of the Marvel movie superheroes make appearances in this television show. Executive producer Joss Whedon responded with a tease:
We may see some people, and we may see some new people from the marvel universe who are not yet cinematic… Probably, but I can’t say when because that’d be spoiling it.
Later, when Clark Gregg was asked about how it felt to return in the suit, he hesitated trying to come up with an answer and instead just decided to give Joss, who was sitting next to him on the panel, a hug. Clark credited the fans for his return, saying that “Bad ass geeks around the world weren’t having it” and started the Coulson lives movement which made all of this happen.
Another audience member asked if we were going to see a clip from the series, and Joss responded him that they were going to bring a clip but they couldn’t due to some Disney legal issue… but instead they brought the whole pilot. Cut to: a thousand fans in Ballroom 20 erupt in applause at this surprise screening. After the jump you can read my thoughts on the pilot episode, with and without spoilers.
