Clark Gregg Calls 6 Million People A Loser Because They Stopped Watching Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.



Clark Gregg - Agent Phil Coulson - has gone on record calling about 6 million people losers for having stopped their watching of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The series has seen about a loss of 6 million viewers from the record numbers that the premiere episode boasted.

"If you’ve given up on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., those aren’t geeks. Those are losers," Clark Gregg told The Salt Lake Tribune.

Likewise, Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb tells the fanboys straight up that Iron Man won't be appearing on the series, and that Robert Downey Jr. is not coming anytime soon.

"But there are still people online who go, ‘We don’t understand why Iron Man isn’t on the show!’ " Loeb said. "You know what? He’s not. I love Robert [Downey Jr.] — not coming by anytime soon."

When Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. was first launched it was described as "not all heroes are super," but that is exactly the problem most seem to have with the show as it is called "Marvel," and Marvel is known for their superhero universe.

The good news is that the series seems to be going in the direction the fans want, though admittedly it's been a slow start. 

"You start to have people like Deathlok showing up," Clark Gregg said. "You start to understand that a bunch of these different episodes were connected. A lot of the geeks that I respect most … are very excited about where we’re going. So I’m going to choose to work for them."

In addition to Deathlok, Jaimie Alexander will be reprising as Sif from the Thor movies in an episode of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. as she is set to do battle against another Asgardian from the Marvel Comics. Stan Lee will also appear on the next episode with Deathlok, and it's been announced that fan-favorite actor Bill Paxton will be in the series for an arc.
