Keep updating this page for the latest live from the NerdHQ Marvel Television panel with cast from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter.
Please forgive the typos which will occur as we try to bring you all the best stuff as quickly as possible.
We’re starting with a clip from the Agent Carter season finale (Jarvis giving Peggy Captain America’s blood). Hayley Atwell and James D’Arcy have been introduced and now we have a clip from the #AgentsofSHIELD finale (Skye & Coulson getting into Lola discussing where things are heading). And now Chloe Bennet & Clark Gregg are introduced.
Chloe says she’s the captain of the Skimmons ship.
Clark says he things the introduction of inhumans and people being different is a great
Discussing the dub smash war, Chloe says she doesn’t know how they’re going to top it, Hayley says it’s not over, Clark described how the last dubsmash ended (Check his twitter feed, I don’t want to spoil it)
Talking about pranks
Hayley hid in James’ trailer for half an hour so she could scare him on Halloween
Chloe filled Iain’s trailer with snow, he got her back by putting a "BALZDEEP" licence plate on the front of her care and she didn’t notice for a month.
When she was filming a scene and Chloe had to "wake up" someone was wearing a clown mask and scared her so she fell off the chair.

When asked who inspires him, James said he doesn’t read newspapers often because it is deeply effecting and usually pretty negative but he’s oddly inspired by small acts of kindness that will never be reported in a newspaper, eg, someone helping another person cross the street – the thing people to get awards for that go unnoticed, those moments really floor him, he thinks 98% of the world looks like that but we only hear what the 2% does
Clark – Clark has found last 3 weeks of media painful and inspiring but the way the congregation in Charleston reacted and the community rallied around, and the passage of the marriage equality bill and the feeling that we’re part of a compassionate nation makes him feel better lately
Chloe’s approach to filming the scenes using her power is ‘what makes me look the least dumb" Skye was in denial for a long time and didn’t want any part of it so basically it’s ‘w
Jarvis talks about the big explosion in the second episode – says director Joe Russo was focused on getting out of there early "so the green screen… that’s going to happen, you just duck" James says it was brilliant
Clark talks about how it feels to be part of the Marvel universe – before he can even respond the crowd cheers big time. Clark says his mother sent him some notebooks of his and one said algebra on the front and inside he was trying to draw Starling’s Warlock and Daredevil. So when he was called for a role for "a couple of lines" he says the whole thing has been unbelievably amazing, that there’s a the genre offerse a slightly different prism through which you can look out at the world and he likes that and thanks the fans for making it possible for him to still being doing it. Coulson Lives!
Chloe talks about how kind and sweet Clark is and they all share a bond, he’s taken care of everyone on set and "he’s our leader and we love him".
Clark says the Membrane between him and Coulson gets smaller and smaller.
Joss Whedon Panel
Joss says there probably won’t be a directors cut, he’s proud of what he’s done and says it’s the most personal thing he’s ever put on screen.
Joss did not understand the impact he would have on people because of his work, the internet was only just beginning when Buffy was happening so he had no way to know this kind of reaction could happen but it’s one of the best things.
Joss says he is always writing for himself, if you start writing towards someone else you lose yourself and the integrity, the ability to find the truth of the moment but he jokes he couldn’t keep a diary as a child because he’d think "what happens when it’s published", but says he was always censoring himself because someone may read it. He says he thinks "if it works for me it’ll work for other people."
Joss says he’s very proud of the conversation with Ultron at the end of Age of Ultron. He says there are a lot of deliberate overtones that can be interpreted individually.
Joss is aware people still want more Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and they all still want to do it but they all have jobs right now, he says they fell passionately about it but don’t want to get it wrong, but hopefully a window will open.
Joss says he starts directing the moment he starts writing something but for the most part when he’s directing he gets to be totally visual at that point.
Question: How is Steve Rogers not worthy? Joss responds "Is he not? Are we sure? Did he fail… or did he stop!?"
If Joss could attend a panel and ask someone a question who would it be and what would he ask? Joss says iZombie, and he’d ask "Why are you awesome"
What new tech does Joss what to use in film? Joss says drones, they can do things you couldn’t do before, shots you just couldn’t get. He says they used both drones & remote control car during Avengers 2.
Joss says he’d love to work more with Mark Ruffalo.
More Shakespeare Joss would like to do include Hamlet and "pole position" goes to Orthello.
