If you’ve been paying attention over the last few years, you might know that Clark Gregg, who plays Phil Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is quite the Iron Fist fan. He’s talked about it on numerous occassions and if the actor got his way, we’d definitely be seeing the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. making an appearance in the upcoming series.
Well, while he didn’t say that would be the exact case, it seems that Marvel’s Head Of Television Jeph Loeb has made Gregg an actual promise when it comes to the character. While speaking with Comic Book Resources at the Daredevil season two premiere, Loeb told the outlet the following about this promise.
Before I get done, I have to make sure that Clark Gregg and Iron Fist get together. I’m not saying Agent Coulson — Clark Gregg has actually made me promise that he gets to meet Iron Fist. He’s a gigantic Iron Fist fan.
While it’s unlikely that they will, fans would very likely be quite happy to see Coulson make an apperance in Iron Fist. Wouldn’t be the first connection between the Netflix & ABC TV sides of the MCU. For now though, it just sounds like it will be something that happens behind-the-scenes. What about you?
