Firstly, be assured the following video contains no spoilers for The Avengers
. In fact, it contains no spoilers for any of the Marvel Studios films in which actor Clark Gregg
appears as Agent Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D., Secondly, that is because for some reason Next Movie
only include about two seconds per scene. Which is a bummer, because Gregg's performances are often everyone's favorite parts of these films, but there's a lot of the guy just hanging out and being funny in this video and getting a glimpse at his experience making them, so check it out.
You can see Gregg now in The Avengers
, directed by Joss Whedon and based on the superhero team first assembled by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in the pages of Marvel Comics. The film has been embraced by superhero comics fans and critics
, but some industry professionals like Golem's Mighty Swing
cartoonist James Sturm have called for a boycott
in protest of Marvel and its parent company Disney's treatment of the late Kirby and his heirs, who recently lost a court battle
to reclaim rights to the lucrative characters. Mindful of the ethical conflict some people feel about the situation, cartoonist Jon Morris proposed an option
whereby movie-goers can match the cost of their tickets with donations to The Hero Initiative
, the not-for-profit group dedicated to assisting comics industry professionals in dire financial straits.
