Clark Gregg, the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent that appeared in the first Iron Man movie is reprising his role in both Iron Man 2 and the Kenneth Branagh Thor flick.
The character is the latest to appear in multiple Marvel productions as the comicbook company’s film division preps for the eventual production of “The Avengers,” which unites Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Captain America and Thor in one pic. Marvel has been keen on brokering deals with actors to make sure auds will recognize characters when they crossover and appear in its other films.
It make sense, and it is something I greatly appreciate. At least they aren’t pulling a Billy Dee Williams with this character.
