There's always lots of treats coming out of a comic con, but the one that always shows up without fail is celebrities walking around in disguises. Henry Cavill and Elijah Wood did it, and now the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have followed suit. Watch Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennet, and Gabriel Luna surprise fans on the New York Comic Con show floor.
Leave it to a Spider-Punk to throw a wrench into the works and say he didn't like the show. Other than that, this video was a joy to watch. Clark Gregg (Coulson), Chloe Bennet (Daisy/Quake) and the new Ghost Rider Gabriel Luna, took to the New York Comic Con show floor disguised as other Marvel characters in order to surprise fans. Under the guise of a simple interview package for Marvel TV, the trio of actors looked for Marvel fans (not a hard thing to do at a Con) and asked if they were also fans of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The result is pretty joyful, with lots of candidly surprising moments.
The best moment of the video can when they revealed themselves to the guy in just a t-shirt. He was a genuine fan of the show and his reaction when they lifted their masks was so happy and excited that it was infectious. Daredevil might be his favorite Marvel show, but that didn't mean he couldn't freak out when he met Agent Coulson himself. The runner-up was the guy in the amazing Captain America costume, who actually met Clark Gregg before once, but was still happy to see him again.
Watching these sorts of interactions always leaves me with a sense of anxiety because it's so awkward if someone doesn't recognize the person or -- in this case -- doesn't like the show. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has vastly improved, but it had a rough Season 1 that didn't click with a lot of fans. We see the fallout of that with Spider-Punk, who must be thankful no one could see his face he said he didn't like the show right to the cast (though, he was polite about it). Thankfully there wasn't too much of that, and it looked like everyone involved ended up having a good time.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is currently enjoying Season 4 of its run, which introduces the mystical side of the MCU to TV. Ghost Rider has been a big selling point for the season, and so far Gabriel Luna has not disappointed as the Spirit of Vengeance; his interactions with Daisy have been particularly memorable.
Make sure to tune in and watch the newest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which you can catch on Tuesday nights at 10 PM on ABC.
