We set up a live chat room here on shieldtv.net a few weeks ago anticipating people would be looking for an outlet once the news of the S.H.I.E.L.D. pickup was made official.
Last night, after news was leaked of a promo to be aired on Sunday night we had a few people in the chat room and here's what happened.
13:37: Director E - Did Clark Gregg just RT himself?
13:38: Director E - Ahh, i see what happened, he was trying to correct a typo in one of the twitter names
13:39: Director E - Now there's someone that would be awesome to have drop by chat... don't ya think?
13:39: Agent Nyoshi - wow, yes
13:41: Crossbones - Isn't Agent Coulson a reserved username? You should try to give it to him lol
13:41: Crossbones - Even if he were to never post, it would just be neat to have him here as coulson lol
13:42: Guest1368157313 - This is Coulson
13:42: Guest1368157313 - I mean Clark
13:42: Guest1368157313 - Thanks for the support.
13:42: Guest1368157313 - I know. proof.
13:42: Crossbones - no one knows what to say
13:42: Crossbones - lol
13:43: Crossbones - seems like the real deal
13:43: Crossbones - you never know but i'll you the benefit of the doubt
13:43: Guest1368157313 - Looking for a dumb enough picture of myself that you'll know I'm for real
13:43: Agent Nyoshi - What. Is. Happening.
13:43: Crossbones - Lol
13:44: Agent Nyoshi - And if anyone read that in Jason Manzukis' voice, I'd be happy lol
13:44: Crossbones - if you have a pen and paper you could write down "Hey : shieldtv.net" or something, that would be more than enough proof lmao
13:44: Guest1368157313 - Could not a post a photo
13:44: Crossbones - I believe you
13:45: Crossbones -
13:45: Agent Nyoshi - and i just saw you on twitter
13:45: Director E - sorry I had to run off with a minor emergency
13:45: Crossbones - LOL
13:45: Guest1368157313 - Just tweeted it.
13:45: Agent Nyoshi - holy tap dancing shit cakes, sir, thanks for stopping by
13:46: Director E - If you're really Clark please DM SHIELDTV so I know
13:46: Agent Snark - Wow!
13:46: Crossbones - Thats awesome
13:46: Crossbones - I didn't doubt you for a second
13:46: Director E - not that we don't want to not believe you
13:46: Guest1368157313 - Expectations are high. Should have good news in the am.
13:46: Agent Nyoshi - great to hear.. er, read
13:46: Agent Snark - We're all really excited
13:46: Director E - Wow! Thanks Clark.. you must have heard us saying how cool it would be
13:47: Director E - and here you are coming into my chat room and I'm in the process of running off to another room choking to death for a completely unrelated reason
13:47: Guest1368157313 - I suspect Hydra
13:47: Guest1368157592 - Cheers for coming in, Clark!
13:47: Agent Nyoshi - hee hee
13:47: Guest1368150212 - I just saw Levar Burton on Colbert Report, and now Clark Gregg is talking to me online, I think I died when they took my blood this morning.
13:47: Agent Snark - It's always HYDRA, isn't it.
13:47: Guest1368157599 -
13:47: Director E - What a time to start choking to death LOL yay me
13:48: Director E - (it was a bit of apple in stuck in my throat)
13:48: Director E - but i'm all good now
13:48: Crossbones - would there be a way to let clark take the reserved username?
13:48: Guest1368157313 - Ok, Snow White...
13:48: Crossbones - for agent coulson?
13:48: Director E - We are SO excited for shield Clark. As you know because youv'e been following us for a while, we've been working hard here on this site for a while now
13:48: Crossbones - because i cant think of anyone else more worthy on ti lol
13:48: dizmo - My ability to can has... gone very far away.
13:48: Agent Nyoshi - LOL
13:49: Agent Honey - LOL, diz
13:49: Guest1368157592 - Everyone is excited. I screamed so loud at El Capitan when you came out.
13:49: Agent Nyoshi - i was hoping you'd show up
13:49: Guest1368157313 - I'm still not sure how people are going to handle Phil as a zombie
13:49: Guest1368157710 - Hello everyone! Is Agents of SHIELD officially picked up?
13:49: Crossbones - Wow look at all the guests
13:49: dizmo - Are you kidding? That's cosplay CENTRAL.
13:49: Agent Nyoshi - grrr... argh... brains...
13:49: Guest1368157626 - I think they should give Coulson some powers
13:49: dizmo - Zombie Coulson EVERYWHERE.
13:49: Guest1368157711 - I guess we figured out how to get people in the chatroom
13:49: Guest1368150212 - That's after the shotgun Dizmo
13:49: Agent Honey - Coulson already HAS powers
13:49: Agent Nyoshi - yeah, this is one way, jesus...
13:50: Guest1368157313 - I mean when they see me eating Hydra brains...
13:50: Guest1368157710 - thanks a lot...
13:50: Guest1368157592 - Speaking of brains, does anyone in here watch Hannibal? lol
13:50: dizmo - Best way to get rid of Hydra...
13:50: Guest1368157626 - What power would you want if you could give Coulson one?
13:50: Agent Snark - If you ever want to test your site traffic capabilities, just have Clark Gregg stop by.
13:50: Agent Snark - Failproof solution.
13:50: Director E - For those coming in .. guest 313 is Clark "Agent Coulson" Gregg
13:50: Agent Nyoshi - i mean, no one likes those guys, so it would be just fine if you nommed on them
13:50: Guest1368157313 - nommed is funny
13:50: Crossbones - when I registered about an hour ago there were 2 people on chat
13:50: Guest1368157710 - WHERE IS CLARK GREGG???
13:50: fueledbystefo - Is Clark still hanging around?
13:50: Crossbones - Now theres 35
13:51: Guest1368157596 - (and the rest of us are random fen who saw his tweet and popped over)
13:51: Guest1368157313 - Why can't I post a pic?
13:51: Agent Snark - No, he's actually a Skrull of Clark Gregg. Kidding, kidding.
13:51: Agent Honey - Its complicated
13:51: Director E - Well, now thanks to Clark's visit you've all found the best S.H.I.E.L.D. site on the web not that I'm biased or anything
13:51: Agent Nyoshi - you might have to be registered?
13:51: Agent Nyoshi - help the good man!
13:51: dizmo - He's a Clark LMD.
13:51: Director E - This chat system has limited resources, the people with avatars are signed up with gravatar so it picks them up automatically
13:52: Director E - it's one of the things the software developers are working on fixing
13:52: Guest1368157721 - I had no idea S.H.I.E.L.D. even had a chat room. This is amazing.
13:52: Director E - but if you register : http://shieldtv.net/wp-login.php?action=register you can at least use your name
13:52: Crossbones - director E, you should send clark a private message on twitter with the Agent Coulson account or something
13:52: Guest1368157721 - And to answer an earlier question about zombies, I don't personally watch Hannibal, but someone told me they watched an episode and can no longer eat mushrooms... ???
13:53: Crossbones - I dont know how the reserved username thing works though
13:53: Agent L - one day, the forums won't log me out and then say "Agent L, log in to resume". today is not that day
13:54: fueledbystefo - Is anyone else as excited as I am to see Clark Gregg in Much Ado About Nothing? :DDD
13:54: Agent Truxi - So this is where we will squee and obsess over SHIELD in the near future (or now)? Nice digs.
13:54: Director E - I've seen clips from Much Ado (at Wondercon) and I'm very excited
13:54: Guest1368157994 - ooooh
13:54: Director E - absolutely Truxi
13:54: Agent Truxi - Oh yeah. Shakespeare nerd.
13:54: Agent Snark - Can't wait for that movie to hit Chicago, along with Trust Me.
13:54: Agent Nyoshi - Welcome to all the new people!
13:54: Agent Honey - Much Ado > Man of Steel
13:54: Guest1368157596 - Was excited about Much Ado before I knew he was in it. Through the roof now.
13:54: hisnameisagent - testing
13:54: dizmo - How am I going to last all summer?
13:54: hisnameisagent - ah, now I have a a name.
13:55: fueledbystefo - I'm psyched to see Whedon go Shakespeare
13:55: Agent Nyoshi - HA, nice
13:55: dizmo - Best name!
13:55: Guest1368157596 - (the perfect name!)
13:55: Guest1368150212 - That's a great name
13:55: Agent Snark - Yesssss.
13:55: Agent L - movies, dizmo. movies and lots of rocking back and forth
13:55: Guest1368157994 - Beautiful
13:55: AgentKlash - Wonderful.
13:55: dizmo - So much rocking back and forth.
13:55: AgentKlash - Aw, how come my avatar isn't showing up?
13:55: Agent Truxi - Whedon-Shakespeare is pretty groovy. How much fun would that be, to just get some friends and pass out scripts for the heck of it?
13:55: dizmo - It's showing up for me, Klash.
13:55: AgentKlash - oh good.
13:55: Director E - Avatars are currently only working for people using gravatar, we're working on fixing that, sorry
13:55: AgentKlash - it' not forme
13:56: AgentKlash - apparently my space bar doesn't want to work
13:56: Guest1368157596 - (I see it too, Klash)
13:56: fueledbystefo - I love that much ado was just like a big fun project with a group of really talented friends
13:56: Agent L - Hey, E, you took on the 'Director' idea. Nice!
13:56: Agent Truxi - So...was anyone here a part of the Coulson Lives project?
13:56: Agent Honey - Of course!
13:56: Director E - Yeah, I did L.. there were too many Agent "initials" that I figured I needed to differentiate myself a little
13:56: Guest1368158169 - I have Coulson Lives on my Car :3
13:57: Agent L - I was, Truxi. and have a wristband
13:57: Agent L - aye aye, Director
13:57: dizmo - I have Coulson Lives pins.
13:57: Agent Honey - Me too, 169
13:57: Guest1368158051 - What's Clark username? I just want to say that I'm a huge huge fan and thank him for his wonderful part in the MCU. I can't wait to see what he's going to do in SHIELD and I also want to say that he is truly adored in Brazil, where I live, more adored than even some superheroes, haha. Best wishes, @juniorwho.
13:57: Guest1368158169 - I made a Vinyl Sticker, and put it on there. And a Bracelet
13:57: Agent Truxi - (Oh, I thought "Director E" was a pun)
13:57: hisnameisagent - If the show gets picked up tomorrow, I am going to have to get a SHIELD logo tattoo
13:57: dizmo - (It helps that I'm friends with the people behind the CoulsonLives twitter...)
13:57: AgentKlash - I just changed my avatar, hope it shows up
13:57: Guest1368158169 - I have the SHIELD logo as a Tattoo :3
13:57: Director E - We have what.. about 9 hours to go now till we get the offiical S.H.I.E.L.D. word
13:57: Guest1368158169 - And a Hawkeye Tattoo on the other side XD
13:57: Agent Snark - Do you have to clear that with the wife first or...?
13:57: Guest1368157994 - I plan on one as part of a sleeve
13:57: dizmo - That is too many hours.
13:57: Agent Nyoshi - That's actually what I plan to do for my 30th B-day in July...
13:58: Agent Honey - What do you mean "if"?
13:58: Agent Truxi - Sweet. I still can't believe how far it went. (I did the library books and some NY stuff.)
13:58: fueledbystefo - i'm pretty confident that the show is gonna get picked up
13:58: Agent Nyoshi - still trying to figure out where i'm putting it >_<
13:58: Guest1368158169 - I put mine on my arm :3
13:58: Guest1368157954 - is it nine hours until official word?
13:58: AgentKlash - I'm getting a cool avengers/SHIELD logo tattoo at some point.
13:58: Agent Truxi - So it's not official yet?
13:58: dizmo - I am a Cubs fan, I completely advocate the "if" until ABSOLUTE SURETY occurs.
13:58: Agent Snark - I got to see the Coulson Lives parade marchers at Dragon*Con, that was a nice surprise.
13:58: fueledbystefo - i'm meeting stan lee in 3 weeks and getting his autograph tattooed on my arm ;d
13:58: Agent Mommy - Made SHIELD T-shirts with Coulson Lives on the sleeve for the family.
13:58: Agent Nyoshi - oh nice
13:58: Director E - It will be soon truxi, it's as good as done... just needs the official announcement from ABC
13:59: Director E - Is Clark still with us?
13:59: Guest1368158106 - Is Clark here?
13:59: Guest1368158169 - I have Stark Industries over my collar bone, SHIELD logo on the L.Arm, Hawkeye Tattoo on teh L.Arm, heroes tat behind my ear, the SPN tattoo on my chest, YGO tattoo on my lower arm, and a quote from moulin rouge on the other. XD.
13:59: Agent Truxi - Well, let's hope no one at ABC is allergic to money.
13:59: Agent Nyoshi - i did/continue to do a crap ton of art with Coulson on it as my contribution to the Coulson Lives movement
13:59: Guest1368158169 - ALL KINDSA GEEKY.
13:59: AgentKlash - It was great to see Clark come out at the El Capitan for Avengers, he looked so happy. Soak up all the nerd love man.
13:59: dizmo - It's gonna be the Longest Summer Ever.
13:59: hisnameisagent - Clark here
13:59: Agent Truxi - Oh.
13:59: Director E - ooh duh sorry
13:59: dizmo - Clark has the best chatname ever, that's how you know it's him.
13:59: Guest1368158154 - This is something
13:59: Guest1368157626 - I think Coulson should get his own Iron Man suit
13:59: Agent Truxi - eheheh, I'll just be giggling nervously now.
13:59: Director E - I'm going to go put your official badge on over at the forums
13:59: Agent L - someone should get the full Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division, then have it fade out to SHIELD
14:00: Guest1368158169 - Of course Clark get sthe good user name ;3
14:00: Agent Honey - Clark, gotta say again how much I loved "Trust Me"
14:00: Guest1368158051 - Am I the only one who's against the Hulk on the show? I mean, this is Clark's chance to shine even brighter, and having a superhero would def be a turn-off, even if it's the Hulk and if it's handled by mr. Whedon.
14:00: Agent Honey - Afraid I was pretty incoherent at the time
14:00: Agent Truxi - Was anyone saying anything about the Hulk?
14:00: Crossbones - I think its Abomination in that teaser
14:00: fueledbystefo - Hey Clark, what is it like working with Joss Whedon? He's my idol and inspiration and I would just love to get a chance to work with him someday!
14:00: Alwaysstargazing - Hello all
14:00: Guest1368157954 - Coulson doesn't need an Iron Man suit, he's badass on his own
14:00: hisnameisagent - Glad you loved Trust Me
14:00: Liberty - I'm not against anything being in the show. Bring it all.
14:00: Director E - 051 - I'm guessing it's just a tiny appearance from Hulk - if indeed that clip is S.H.I.E.L.D. related
14:00: Agent Truxi - Honestly, I'd like to see, say, She-Hulk, but cameo'd as lawyer Jennifer Walters.
14:00: dizmo - Besides, Tony would leave so many pranks in a suit made for Coulson, it would be ridiculous.
14:00: Guest1368158051 - It's obviously something to attract people for a pilot, but I sure hope this is not something they'll do on a frequent basis.
14:00: Guest1368157721 - SHIELD pick up + Much Ado wide release + Trust Me buyers would make this the greatest summer ever
14:00: Guest1368158169 - Trust me was brilliant, Clark. You and Sam Rockwell do amazing work together.
14:00: Agent Snark - The Summer of Gregg
14:01: Agent Nyoshi - Um, so I have a question for Clark. Have you had a chance to see what they're doing with Coulson in the comics recently? They're really doing an awesome job with him in Secret Avengers.
14:01: Agent Truxi - Mr. Gregg, just gotta say, thanks so much for your work in the MCU, and for being so freaking NICE to all the fans. You're fantastic.
14:01: hisnameisagent - I am so grateful for the Coulson love and support. If the show gets picked up tomorrow - it will be thanks to all of you.
14:01: Agent Honey - Oh, man, please tell me there's a distribution deal in the works for Trust Me... WANT!
14:01: Alwaysstargazing - wow you guys type fast
14:01: AgentKlash - Oh man, Truxy, gotta agree with you. If not for Clark, I would have not made it through my fiancee breaking up with me.
14:01: dizmo - Denial is a shockingly powerful thing.
14:01: Director E - there's no IF!! And pff.. we just watch, you do the hard part
14:02: Agent Honey - Man, it wouldn't be SHIELD without Coulson
14:02: hisnameisagent - I haven't seen secret avengers. Just bought some battle scars
14:02: Alwaysstargazing - Hello Mr. Gregg
14:02: Agent Snark - We're all rooting for it to be picked up!
14:02: dizmo - Battle Scars is awesome.
14:02: Guest1368158169 - We got you brought back from teh dead. We'll get you picked up XD
14:02: doinkies - Hi Mr. Gregg
14:02: Agent Nyoshi - Oh nice! I liked that book.
14:02: AgentKlash - Love battle scars!
14:02: allochthon - Mmmm. Battle Scars...
14:02: dizmo - But yeah, highly recommend Secret Avengers.
14:02: Agent Truxi - Coulson is kinda hilarious in Battle Scars.
14:02: AgentKlash - Cheese
14:02: AgentKlash - *snickers*
14:02: Guest1368157954 - Agreed on the Secret Avengers
14:02: dizmo - Coulson provides scones.
14:02: Agent Nyoshi - Secret Avengers is kicking all the ass
14:02: Liberty - Mr. G, any fav stand out moments from IM3?
14:02: dizmo - It's amazing.
14:02: Tanathir - This is something to get up from a fialed nap for
14:02: hisnameisagent - I am ashamed to say I have been working and haven't seen it yet. Going tomorrow I hope.
14:02: Guest1368158051 - Clark is so badass that he's in a freaking chat room talking to his fans. This is something not everyone would do, so we have to thank him too for being awesome to us, even if sometimes we're a little to crazy.
14:03: Guest1368157626 - ABC...SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY. PICK UP THE SHOW.
14:03: AgentKlash - Well that answers my question on whether or not you stuck around at El Capitan on the 3rd.
14:03: Guest1368157954 - Also Coulson's guest appearance in Avenging Spiderman
14:03: Agent Honey - NWorking is good :')
14:03: Tanathir - can't work all the time
14:03: dizmo - Oh man, so snarky in Avenging Spidey.
14:03: Crossbones - It took me by complete surprise when he joined.
14:03: Alwaysstargazing - lol
14:03: Pepsiguy2 - Hi Clark, I just wanted to say that I love the work you're doing on Ultimate Spider-Man. It's a great take on Coulson. Would you voice the character for any sort of media if you were asked?
14:03: Agent Truxi - Oh he's in it?
14:03: Crossbones - It was 3 people like half an hour ago
14:03: dizmo - In issue 20, yes.
14:03: Liberty - It's so much fun. All 'splodey stuff and RDJ's sad eyes. Perfect.
14:03: Guest1368150212 - IM3 is the best yet, love the after credits moment (no spoilers)
14:03: hisnameisagent - Tweet me some titles, issue numbers. I must see these
14:04: doinkies - I loved IM3
14:04: dizmo - All of Secret Avengers, and then Avenging Spider-Man #20.
14:04: Guest1368158513 - Gooooo Downton!
14:04: Guest1368157596 - Still squeaking about the post-credit scene myself. Overall awesome.
14:04: Agent Truxi - I really need to pick up Avenging Spider-Man again. It's exactly what mainstream comics need--easy done-in-one stories with a recognizable character helping boost a lesser-known one, and written as something I could hand a ten-year-old at the library.
14:04: danregal - Hahaha! I need to get this thing working (danregal here)
14:04: AgentKlash - Man, I need to catch up on SA.
14:04: Agent Snark - Secret Avengers Coulson is amazing. And yeah, he brings scones.
14:04: Agent Honey - there was a lot of fansquee at the end-of-credits scene
14:04: Crossbones - Glad I joined here when I did, took the name Crossbones before anyone else could
14:04: Guest1368157954 - Some of us don't have twitter (though if I were to get one, it'd probably be to follow you easier)
14:04: danregal - oh hey, it is working
14:04: hisnameisagent - Alright, time to get my daughter offline and put her to bed. Thanks again!
14:04: Guest1368158169 - I have to Agree. Secret Avengers is brilliant
14:04: Guest1368158642 - Hey everyone
14:04: Agent Nyoshi - Secret Avengers, all of it, He's popped up in Indestructible Hulk and Uncanny X-Men too
14:04: AgentKlash - Thanks clark for coming!
14:04: Director E - Thanks so much for stopping by clark
14:04: allochthon - Mr. G, you mentioned a dream adaptation of "Blood Meridian?"
14:04: Guest1368158169 - BYE! THANK YOU FOR COMING!
14:04: Guest1368157596 - 'Night, sir. Thanks for the visit!
14:04: Alwaysstargazing - Night Mr. Gregg

14:05: danregal - thanks for stopping by Clark!
14:05: allochthon - Thanks and bye!
14:05: dizmo - Night! It was awesome!
14:05: Director E - And Good luck fo tomorrow! Not that you need it
14:05: Agent Nyoshi - thanks for stopping by!
14:05: Guest1368158642 - As a Couslon crossplayer *Salute*
14:05: Guest1368157626 - Thanks for stopping by!
14:05: Liberty - thanks, Mr. G!
14:05: Agent Ara - Good night!
14:05: Agent Honey - Goodnight, Clark!
14:05: hisnameisagent - as Ahnuld says, "I'll be back!
14:05: danregal - Mr Gregg. Agent.
14:05: fueledbystefo - Thanks for stopping by Clark! It really means a lot! Keep on being awesome
14:05: Agent Nyoshi - come again any time!
