Clark Gregg thinks Coulson could tie into 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Kree aliens

According to Cinema Blend on Sunday, ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" Clark Gregg discussed the first season and his enthusiasm about where they're taking Agent Phil Coulson on his journey. In the last episodes of the ABC TV series, when Coulson explores an old bunker and finds the cure for Skye's fatal wounds and of course the reason for his continued life, what he saw at Project T.A.H.I.T.I. wasn't quite a magical place for him. Though, the blood acquired from the seemingly dead blue creature apparently does have seemingly "magical" properties.

Gregg is currently working on his project "Trust Me" and whilst in the interview, questions were asked about the journey and possible fate of Agent Coulson. Back in the first Jon Favreau "Iron Man" days, Gregg just did minor appearances in the initial Marvel Studios movie. The most excitement he's ever had in that film was blowing up a door entry with a minor explosive device.

Now, Gregg has appeared made his way as one of the most recognizable human heros in the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization and now even has his own TV show and "bus." Gregg expressed that he really liked where they were going with him.

“I love where they took it,” Gregg said, complementing the show’s writers. “I love that they stripped him down and gave him his dream job at a moment when S.H.I.E.L.D. no longer existed. He’s the President of the United States of nothing right now. He’s been told the reason he was saved was because of a project designed to save Avengers, so on the one hand that’s a ridiculous honor from Director Fury. But it’s just a huge responsibility that he’s basically been given. ‘This thing you've dedicated your life to, it was rotten to the core. Here’s a mystery cube, and start to rebuild it, and P.S. you’re pumping with alien blood, don’t really know the ramifications. Good luck!’”

If any fan recalls, with the tie-in of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and the acquisition of S.H.I.E.L.D. by Hydra in the movie, this situation had serious ramifications on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." as well. With treachery and deceit, there was no telling who to trust.

Most importantly, in regards to the future of Agent Coulson and his involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Gregg was asked about Coulson's unintelligible writings on the wall in an obsessed fashion in the last episode. Gregg mentioned that his character wasn't conscious of what he was doing as he seemed to perform some kind of mock role as the visiting alien to Earth in the classic film "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

There are speculative thoughts on the alien under glass that Coulson had encountered. Thoughts that may consider said alien could be of the Kree race. A species name that would likely to be brought to light as mentionable in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy." A known esteemed member of the Kree is the main villain in Gunn's film and is known as Ronan the Accuser as portrayed by Lee Pace.

Gregg had his thoughts on what Coulson encountered:

”It looks like [a Kree] to me, but I haven’t heard it confirmed. All I can do is be a fellow fan boy at this point.”
