"I was shocked," said Clark Gregg, who reprises the role of Phil Coulson for the fourth time in "The Avengers", of first reading Joss Whedon's script. "As someone who's been in these movies, who loves these movies, who loved the comics, who knows these heroes, and who loves good writing, I didn't know how anyone was gonna do it."
"It's a magic trick," said Gregg. "The fact that it's so human, and so funny, and then so damn exciting...I don't know how he did it, so I'm kind of a little freaked out by him right now."
