Agents of SHIELD’s Clark Gregg addresses Bob Iger’s Marvel TV slight

  • Clark Gregg, the actor who played Phil Coulson, acknowledges the often-overlooked status of Marvel’s TV shows such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • Disney CEO Bob Chapek credits Bob Iger for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s success, but Gregg points out Iger didn’t mention the TV series in a separate tweet.
  • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was Marvel’s first TV show and ran for seven seasons.

Clark Gregg, the actor best known for his role as Phil Coulson in Marvel’s TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., recently addressed the apparent slight of Marvel Television by Disney’s top brass. Gregg acknowledged that Marvel’s TV shows, such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., have often been overlooked in comparison to Marvel Studios’ more prominent films.

This comes after Disney CEO Bob Chapek credited former CEO Bob Iger for being the driving force behind the successful Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in a recent company earnings call. However, Gregg highlighted that Iger didn’t mention the TV series in a separate tweet, which led to concerns that Marvel Television’s contributions have been overlooked.

In a tweet, Gregg responded to Iger’s comment, stating, “Not surprised/Iger never mentioned the first #Marvel TV show”: referring to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Marvel’s first TV show that ran for seven seasons. The tweet was accompanied by a gif of his character Coulson making a “disappointed” expression.

Despite its overlooked status, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. garnered a loyal fanbase and ultimately ran for seven seasons from 2013 to 2020. Along with other Marvel TV shows like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Agent Carter, these series brought unique perspectives to the Marvel universe and added depth to the characters they adapted from comic books.

However, as Marvel Studios moves forward with Phase 4 and its increased focus on Disney+ series, it seems the previous generation of Marvel TV shows may continue to be overshadowed by the success of the MCU.
