‘Agents of SHIELD’ season 2 spoilers: Clark Gregg on Inhumans introduction

Agents of SHIELD -Are you ready to see what lies ahead on Marvel’s “Agents of SHIELD“? You know already that we have the potential at the moment to see many huge things coming up. After all, the Inhumans are now upon us … or at least one of them is with Skye. Her presence, coupled with what happened to Trip, set the foundations ultimately for what is going to be the rest of the season. In turn, all of this sets a foundation for what should be an insane remainder of the series. More and more powers are becoming clear to the likes of Coulson and company, and in many ways, that makes their job as members of SHIELD even harder.

If there is one person who is certainly excited to see what comes from this story already, it is Clark Gregg. Speaking in a new interview with IGN, he expressed his general excitement at getting to dive into the Inhuman storyline on the show. It is something that deals with an interesting aspect of humanity, and will be a whole lot of fun to explore:

“It’s just a part of the world that I really love. I always clicked the most with the stuff that feels the most… all my favorite sci-fi, all my favorite comics, they were always about stuff that felt like a way you could look at stuff that was too hard to look at in real life. There’s a way that stuff like the Inhumans… Whether it’s in X-Men or whether it’s inhumans, they always represented people who evolved in a different way where some of them were outcasts or treated like something was wrong with them and yet, perhaps, in many ways represented a vital new part of what we’re supposed to be. You can’t read the news or watch society change without seeing fertile ways that that represents who we are. All the ways that you watch the headlines, and people are part of super secret organizations slaughtering people on the street… It makes the kind of fight to protect us from them something that’s not just a fantasy comic world but connects to real life. Inhumans are a really important part of that for me. I’m really excited to see how they use that part of it on our show. It’s one of the things that’s fun about being on this show. When you understand what it is, you see Winter Solider and it’s “Agents of Nothing.” Right when you think you know what that is, there’s the attack at the end of the season and he can’t stop carving [symbols]. It keeps adding new elements to it. That said, we’re at nine o’clock, with a darker tone – less ICERS, more bullets. I think it’s finding its way to be more and more; its own central self that can withstand having things brought into it.”

Of course, much of what he describes here at length will not come for quite a while. In the short-term, just expect the series to channel most of its energy into focusing more on Skye and discovering more of what she is capable of. This is going to be a long process, and it will be interesting to see how all of it is handled while dealing with other smaller stories along the way.
