Marvel released the first trailer for Captain Marvel yesterday and it looks like it has sparked some really incredible reactions.
Clark Gregg, who plays Agent Coulson in the film recently responded to a fan’s comment on Twitter about his de-aged look in Captain Marvel. Gregg humorously wrote that the creators didn’t have to use any de-ageing software on him. He further said that all he had to do for the role was take a “four-day nap.”
Not bad age reduction VFX work. https://t.co/4OFPZTk8lH

This comment is pretty hilarious and has urged fans to remember Coulson’s time in The Avengers and Agents of SHIELD. It turns out that playing a younger Coulson was a challenging pitch to Gregg.
“That was a fun call from my friends in the Cinematic Universe,” Gregg explained in an interview earlier this year. “who I normally see at these events, saying, ‘You know, we think once again we have some work for you, but it takes place in the ’90s. Can you go to the gym?’ Yeah, I said, ‘The ’90s? I mean, there is no gym that can get me back to the ’90s.’ And they said, ‘Well, don’t worry. We’ve been working on that technology, and we think we can goose you back a few years.’”
Coulson’s early days in Captain Marvel will also include a sort of “cute meeting” between him and Nick Fury.
“[Coulson] is a relatively new S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who is obsessed with MC Hammer and dresses just like him, and it makes Director Fury so angry,” Gregg quipped earlier this month. “The genie pants don’t really go with the Armani.”
Gregg even expressed his happiness to be a part of Carol Danvers’ heroic journey. “Getting to see Captain Marvel come to life, I mean that’s a really cool character…and, at least in the comics, one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe,” Gregg explained. “Perhaps more powerful than any character we’ve seen, with the exception of Thanos, so to have that be Brie Larson was cool for me. I’m excited to go with my daughter to see it.”
Captain Marvel will hit the theatres on March 8, 2019.
